wonder how many different cars and wheels they went threw for this one video?

I notice at the start the car started with both front wheels black or dark then threw out the video the wheels kept changing color.

Someone posted a picture of his trailer (can't find it now) half way filled with sets of wheels/tires. He only has the one car set up for this.

You gotta wonder what the budget is for these vids...seems to keep going up. Even in #4 I believe when he smashes the side of the car into the ladder. It's like how much is that? Let alone that hard landing on the big one. Few grand in tires not withstanding...

it's a video production, every stage takes several attempts before it comes out as a good material, I can't deny any skill to mr. Block, he is for sure much better driver than I am, but at same time I do believe most WRC drivers are even better skilled, they just don't sell themselves on video advertisement stunts.

oh I wish to see some of the WRC stages recorded by a film crew with HD and slow-mo .... ehhh, and i'm sure it would look same, if not better, than gymkahana

Is that a Ford Fiesta coupe? I wish that body style was for sale in NA instead of the 5dr hatch/sedan.

Same as the previous gen europe Focus 3-dr. Waaaaay nicer looking than the US version.

I agree, this doesn't prove his ability compared to the elite WRC drivers. It's a fun promotional video. Brings attention the sport, brings attention to his brands/ sponsors, and it's just sick video. lol
