Blingy reflective graphics for Ken Block Fiesta
Covers come off Block's latest wild blue-ovaled creation
A war is raging in the Driven offices — a civil war of sorts.
On one side is Mat Day, on the other is I — and in the middle is Ken Block’s new-look Ford Fiesta road warrior, which will be appearing in his next wild Gymkhana video; Gymkhana EIGHT.
See, Mat loathes it. He thinks it’s a blingy, gold chains and spinners–fueled lesson in excess. It is flashy arrogance, whipped up to appease a generation enamored by shiny surfaces, a group who preach to the bible of stance and say silly things like ‘word’ and ‘yo’ on a daily basis.
I kinda like it though. Ken Block’s paint schemes are fast becoming a ‘what will he do next’ gumbo of weird shapes and interesting colours. This has inexplicably led to Block setting a high bar for craziness on an annual basis, and he’s no doubt jumped that bar with this latest version.
Or, at least in my mind he has. Check it out in the clip and make up your own mind.
