Ride Shotgun With Ken Block in Ford’s new 360/Virtual Reality Video!

By -


Ken Block and his tire-shredding video series don’t need an introduction. If you don’t know who he is or have at least watched one of his videos, you should probably get a life.

While Block and his production team are in a constant search to make the Gymkhana videos more exhilarating, you can only do so many daredevil stunts without killing someone, or blowing the budget completely out of the water. So what’s the logical next step? Introduce new technology, and that’s exactly what Ford has brought to the table.

Ford Performance has launched a new app called “FordVR,” in which you’ll get exclusive access to some of their high-adrenaline content in the latest and greatest technology—360/Virtual Reality. If you haven’t watched one of these 360 degree videos, you’re totally missing out, as you’re able to dive-into the video in a way that’s never been seen before.

You can now check out Ken Block’s GymkhanaNINE via the app, or you can also watch it on your mobile phone on YouTube. This new video allows you to move your view via mobile phone and act like you’re riding shotgun with Ken. This is likely as close as you can be without paying thousands of dollars for a VIP ride!
