Travis Pastrana is one of those people who’s annoyingly good at everything they do – motocross, stunt driving, monster trucks, NASCAR… and what’s even more irritating is that he’s a really nice guy, so it’s hard to loathe him for it.
We can get jealous though, particularly when we gaze in wonder at his new Gymkhana build. C’mon just look at it!
You may or may not have heard that our ol’ buddy Kenny from the Block won’t be driving in the next Gymkhana video, but will be handing the reins to Pastrana.
And this badass Subaru is what he’ll be using: a fully bespoke WRX STI fusing elements of WRC and DTM, its unique bodywork finished in bare carbon with an eye-searing graphics package.
The fancy-shmancy 2.3-litre boxer motor boasts a billet block, and the aerodynamics can be altered with steering wheel buttons.
Brilliantly, other steering wheel buttons are labelled ‘Send It’, ‘Donuts’, ‘Shake’ and ‘Bake’. Naturally you can be damn sure this thing dances like a ballerina. And there’s an annoyingly nice man behind the wheel.
