XP1K3 is the insane off-road sequel to the UTV (utility terrain vehicle) super hit XP1K2 from UTVUnderground.com. Watch it below:
K2 saw pro off-road driver RJ Anderson take on a challenging custom-built woodland course in a 600-acre forest playground near Mt. Baker, Washington. This squeal takes a more industrial note in an all-out shred-fest that resembles Ken Block’s Gymkhana series, with added off-road bite!
The star of the show though is the Polaris RZR XP Turbo. Set-up in a lightning-blue paint scheme, it rips through the rubble like a knife through butter or like lightning…well, through anything! Let’s not forget that turbo—every time Anderson lifts the throttle, which thankfully is a lot due to the nature of the course, the turbo spool sings loudly making for the perfect backing track.
UTVUnderground say “‘XP1K3’ is five-minute full throttle, turbo powered, mind bending, off-road thrill ride through the most unforgivable obstacles imaginable. RJ Anderson fearlessly attacks massive jumps, high speed drifts, and treacherous man-made terrain in his custom 200 horsepower Polaris RZR XP Turbo. XP1K3 was produced by motorsports production powerhouse Mad Media in the post apocalyptic dystopian decay of abandoned steel mills, old factories, and train yards…and features an array of massive obstacles spread out over six locations in Youngstown, Ohio. Shot in stunning 4K resolution!”
In total, the XP1K viral film series has amassed more than 16 million views across YouTube, Facebook and Instagram so far, and has been watched in more than 70 different countries. The success of these videos is fantastic for the sport of UTV off-roading, highlighting the awesome UTV and SxS (side-by-side) tech available on the market today. XP1K3 is a great addition to the series, having reached almost a million YouTube hits in it’s first month.
“More than a year of planning went into the development and execution of the ‘XP1K3’ campaign,” the video description states. “It took the build team of 15, more than a month to weld, stack, cut, bend and fabricate the custom playground with multiple obstacles. The Mad Media crew of 40 then spent 14 days on location battling dust, rust, rain, mud and fog to capture each of their incredible imagined obstacles.”
