Throw in some nice interior bits too, hell maybe have them gave little plaques by the shifter with the build number and signed by one of the drivers. Id rather see a factory package though, as a stand alone limited run special edition would probably get slapped with a $10k dealer markup just because its "Ken Blocks" car.

Oh and Kens not doing to bad in American Rally-X. He's won several medals in Rally America as well as the Xgames, he got second place in this summers 2012 XGames.
This ^ Nice vid!

Oh how many times I've wanted to drift that Hwy off ramp...not gonna lie but it puts in perspective for me on how big his run was. I have driven 95% of the roads that this was filmed on. Best part is that they had to wait for the New Bay Bridge construction crew to shut the bridge down for real reasons and then film it.

I question how many times times he does it.

I always guessed he did a practice run and then a money run based on past videos and skid marks.

Damage to his vehicle seems to follow from shot to shot in his videos, making me think they use a test car and final run car.

I know the cars are like $250,000.
