Ken Block Shows Japanese Model His Gymkhana Moves

Here at autoevolution, we have a long-standing tradition of sharing totally pointless, but extremely sexy videos of girls screaming from the passenger seats of fast cars. We've even showed you a couple from Korea a while back, but this has to be the first clip from Japan, the country that invented drifting.

The cool things is this is not a regular guy in your average souped up Supra. Sitting in the driver's chair is the legendary rallycross driver Ken Block and he's brought the Monster Energy Ford Fiesta along for the ride. The car is famous with millions of Gymkhana fans from across the world and delivers over 500 horsepower to all four wheels.

On a D1 drifting track in Nagoya, Ken pulls off the usual combination of full-throttle moves, drifting around trucks, ramps and even a small helicopter. Without any sound insulation, the screaming turbo engine makes a lasting impression on the blue bikini clad Japanese model.

We're 99% sure the model in Ken Block's hot-seat is called Rui Kiriyama (stage name, real name is not disclosed). She's a Japanese gravure idol and actress from Tokyo. The 5' 2" (157 cm) beauty has been modeling since 2008 and is currently 23 years old. Since 2010, Rui has served as image girl for the D1GP in Japan. We've also found another video dating back to 2012, where the voluptuous girl takes the role of a pit crew mechanic wearing white go-go boots and a pink skirt. You definitely don't see that every day!

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s.
