Need for Speed and Ken Block present: Gymkhana SIX: The Ultimate Gymkhana Grid Course

Video from Need for Speed

Ken Block Gymkhana Six Custom Pinoy Rides
Alright guys, in case you haven’t seen it yet, Ken Block’s Gymkhana SIX is out! Time to watch the video now!

Need For Speed’s Racing Advisor Ken Block built the ultimate Gymkhana GRID course — a real-life playground to showcase the sheer speed, fun and exhilarating action of driving. This means all-new obstacles that help raise the difficulty for Block to master in his Ford Fiesta ST RX43 2013 racecar, including maneuvering around a moving wrecking ball and sliding through narrow opening cut into the sides of shipping containers. Block also added videogame elements from Need for Speed Rivals. Watch as he executes multiple jumps, drifts around Lamborghini Aventadors and evades the videogame-themed Redview County cops on Segways in his own unique style. You can almost smell the burn of the rubber as he tears up this incredible course. So sit back and enjoy the ride.

Wheels & Machines: The Custom Sedans

Wheels & Machines The Custom Sedans Custom Pinoy Rides Car Photography Manila Philippines pic1
Sedans are probably the most common and popular type of private vehicle you’ll see here in the Philippines. Why? Because this is probably the most practical vehicle configuration ever made. 4 doors that give you unrestricted access to all seats, a hood to access the engine, and a trunk for space. How much simpler can it be?

So when it comes to customizing and personalizing these sedans, the sky’s the limit when it comes to options. Not everything you see here may be everyone’s cup of tea, but we’ve learned to respect people’s individuality, which translates into how they choose to customize their cars. These cars become extensions of the owners’ personalities, which makes things unique and exciting.

Check out the customized and tuned 4-door sedans from the Wheels & Machines Car Show. Enjoy!

If you’re one of those kids who grew up dreaming of owning that Lamborghini, Ferrari, or Porsche on the poster you pinned on your bedroom wall, then you’ll understand what Rauh-Welt Begriff is all about. Exotic rides like Porsches are cars that many dream of, and few will ever own. But RWB Porsches are an even rarer breed, because not many Porsche owners even have one.

But guess what? You are one step closer to achieving that dream; because Rauh-Welt Begriff is now in the Philippines. And if you’ve got what it takes to own an RWB Porsche, then you better talk to Car Porn Racing.

Custom Pinoy Rides has put together an exclusive interview and photoshoot with none other than Ian King, owner of Car Porn Racing, to find out more about his shop, how RWB Philippines came to be, and of course, his story about VICTORIA – the Philippines’ first RWB Porsche, and the first RWB on Air Suspension in the world.
