Auto enthusiasts are very familiar with Ken Block’s annual Gymkhana extravaganza, but this year, Subaru of American partnered with rallycross star Travis Pastrana to make it a reality. All the stunts you’re about to see were filmed in Pastrana’s hometown of Annapolis, Maryland and stars an 862-horsepower one-off WRX STI built by Subaru exclusively for the film. You’ll see plenty of the usual power slides, tire destruction, and even bigger jumps. Read more for a video and additional information.
Pastrana’s purpose-built STI started with a production Subaru shell before eing fully caged and lightened to just 2,623 pounds, which is over 800 pounds lighter than a stock STI, giving it an eye-watering power-to-weight ratio of 3.0 lb/hp. The crazy looking carbon fiber body panels were tested in a wind tunnel, while a DRS-style active rear wing allowed Pastrana to adjust the car’s mood in mid-air for the video’s groundbreaking jump stunts.
