Ken Block Gymkhana 7 Wild In The Streets Of  Los Angeles - Someone Gave Ken Block a 845HP Mustang And This Is What Happened
Here’s the short story: Ken Block + 845HP 1967 Ford Mustang called Hoonicorn + a ton of insanity + tire smoke + director Ben Conrad (the guy behind the past three Gymkhana videos) + another ton of insanity + more tire smoke = Gymkhana 7

And here goes the long story – after three successful Gymkhanas, Ken Bock (the owner of DC Shoes and Hoonigan) partnered again with director Ben Conrad (also directed Recoil 2 and was the creative lead for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, The Avengers and Iron Man 3) for for the seventh title of the Gymkhana series: Wild In The Streets Of Los Angeles. The clip shows Ken Block unleashed, driving a 845 horse power, 6.7-liter V8 supercharged 1967 Ford Mustang and drifting on the streets of LA. A crazy amount of insanity, a lot of driving skill, some cool panoramas of the empty streets of LA, a couple of Police cars involved in the Gymkhana and a lot of tire smoke make this clip the coolest one of the series. Check it our and let me know in the comments bellow.

I also embedded bellow Ken Block‘s first 6 Gymkhanas in case you missed them!

Amazing 17 Giga Pixel Image Of Yosemite Park
Here’s a cool 17 GigaPixel image of the Yosemite park taken back in 2009.
While this is not the biggest picture ever taken (here’s a 272 Giga Pixel image of Shanghai and 320 Giga Pixel interactive image of London which seem to be the largest interactive pics floating around), it’s amazing how much details it can contain.

Check out the video for a cool demo. It’s like playing with an infinite zoom to reveal details that I never believed were included in the picture.
