I don't understand why they put all the timeattack style aero on for basically an autocross car.

 

It wouldn't get as much e-fame if it was stock looking though. It's all about the publicity.

Dear God, why????  

Are you assuming genders?!? It's 2017! You can't do that anymore!

LOL that is something i would do if i had the money and personality to match (so its probably just as well i don't haha). i'm really impressed, i'm going kind of low key with my things but this guys t

The wing ruins it for me.  Also if they went for a more rally style body kit, but more aggressive it would possibly look nicer than this time attack looking kit.

 

Also Is it just me or does it look like the front was designed by a different person to the back?

From what I have seen, time attack cars are 100% business... looks do not come into it.. so at a guess what is at the front just works... as does what is at the back... style doesn't come into it.

 

Could be wrong... also, this isn't a real time attack car... so probs just some s*** house designing going on.

Yep totally get that time attack stuff is the business and it looks really cool and it does work.....on a time attack car. 

 

Given that its not a time attack car and gymkhana is more about show than anything else, it deserves to look nicer.

Well gymkhana is about car control... Ken Block has turned it into a spectacle ... but the key thing here is that it's low speed... so aero is pointless.

Looks more like a time attack build than a gymkhana car, but if Pastrana is involved it will work despite the looks

 

Speaking of Travis and Subaru, keep any eye on Brandon Semenuk, just joined the Subaru US rally team, easily one of the best MTB riders on the planet and slaying it in the US rally champs already

Sign up for Uber and you are a professional driver

 

He is a very good driver, but clearly not a good enough rally driver to be driving for Ford in the WRC, or even taking on Travis and Brandon in the US Champs 

 

Also better payback for Ford in Ken doing burnouts than wrapping hideously expensive WRC cars around things

Context is everything here. Not talking about driving trucks, trains, buses or taxis for a living.

No airbag for the driver, how does that get over the line?

 

The contrast between the exterior and the interior is hilarious

 

Push the boat out, do a custom interior in the same colors, it might make sense then and at least you could put show car next to the price tag

As a meta-thing, this video showcases f***ing everything that is wrong with America right now. A bunch of people flying cross-country in the middle of a pandemic so they can make some w**ky marketing video for the social media likes. People wearing masks around their chin, half of them not wearing them at all. GG USA, this is why you're f***ed.

To settle the debates around how ugly Travis Pastranas aero package looks or what we all think it should have looked like. This explains the reasoning behind.

I have to say the full Gymkhana video is insane. Some serious piece of engineering to make a car do all those things.
