Ken Block's Gymkhana Five: Showing Up Steve McQueen (w/Video)

Hail the new king hoon of San Francisco.

Hard as it is to admit it, folks, it seems to be true: Steve McQueen's 1968 crime thriller Bullitt is no longer the ultimate cinematic expression of hooning in San Francisco. That honor now belongs to Ken Block's colon-happy Gymkhana Five: Ultimate Urban Playground: San Francisco.

Ken Block Gymkhana 5 Teaser: He's On A Boat (w/Video)

Well, it's more of a barge.

So, the latest installment on Ken Block's Ebola-levels-of-virality Gymkhana video series hits the web on July 9th. Which means by July 10th, more people are likely to have watched it than will have seen The Amazing Spider-Man.

Ken Block's H.F.H.V. Fiesta Tastes Gravel For The First Time At DirtFish (w/Video)

Also, Twin Peaks references out the ying-yang.

We at 0-60 know Washington's DirtFish Rally School as home to our good friends and ace rally drivers Chris and Forest Duplessis, as well as the site of one of former 0-60 editor Matt Tuccillo's many humiliations. Apparently, though, Ken Block better knows it as one of the locations where the cult TV show Twin Peaks was filmed back in the early '90s.

Ken Block, Like Michael McDonald, Is Takin' It To The Streets (w/Video)

Opening a can of hoonage on Los Angeles.

Ken Block's current office car—the H.F.H.V, or "Hybrid Function Hoon Vehicle," if you prefer the technical term—wears plenty of different hats, as the name implies. Swap out a few parts, and it can go from a Gymkhana-tuned car to a rallycross car or a stage rally car.

SPEED's "Battle Cross" Channels Early Ken Block Gymkhana (w/Video)

So if you're looking for special effects and an '80s pop soundtrack, look elsewhere.

Remember those early gymkhana videos Ken Block made? Before the epic sets, multimillion dollar shoots and cinema-quality video—back when it was just a man, a rally car, and an empty industrial site filled with obstacles to drift around?
