Gymkhana 2022, the latest film in Hoonigan Media Machine’s award-winning Gymkhana series is here and the best way to describe all the action is pure vehicular insanity. The video features Travis Pastrana in a Subaru after his debut performance in the film franchise, which his buddy and rally racing rival Ken Block created, smashed all previous viral records.
Set across the Florida Keys, Fort Lauderdale, and parts of the Everglades, this video is on a level of its own with tricks ranging from 160+mph jumps to tandem donuts with a helicopter and a Monster Truck donut that risked totaling both vehicle and driver. Not to mention Pastrana’s newfound proximity moments and massive BASE jump “mishap.” It’s set to be the wildest film yet in the series, making it a must-see!
The Subaru is dubbed “The Family Huckster,” and is the most extreme Subaru GL Wagon ever imagined. Starting life as a humble 1983 Subaru GL wagon, the car is now a carbon-clad spaceframe with an 865-hp Subaru Boxer engine, active aero, and long-travel rally suspension. The all-wheel-drive monster also features a functional carbon-fiber roof rack that directs air to the rear-mounted radiator, one of a few homages to US Ski Team Subaru GL wagons of the 1980s. The Huckster also rides on one-off KMC Wheels inspired by wheels on 1980’s Subaru models, in a gold color sourced directly from the wheels used on Subaru’s World Rally Championship-winning race cars.
And there are tons of cameos to watch out for! From Monster Jam royalty Ryan Anderson, YouTube phenom Cleetus McFarland with his 3,000-horsepower El Camino named “Mullet”, veteran pilot Floyd Ingram in an MD 500 helicopter, all the way to Jim York from Pit Viper Sunglasses on a Florida-made Jet Ski turned scooter. And of course, it wouldn’t be a good Florida video without other homages to the state’s storied culture of vehicles, from a twin-turbo fire-breathing fan boat to high-rise lifted trucks from American Force.
