Oh to be Ken Block. Ever since I first saw the movie Bullitt, I’ve wanted to drive around San Fransisco like a mad man. Block has done just that for the fifth installment of his world famous Gymkhana videos (I wish I knew how much DC Shoes payed to block off -no pun intended- the streets and the Golden Gate Bridge).
Ken Block’s vehicle of choice for the Gymkhanas 3-5 has been the Ford Fiesta RS WRC HFHV. The HFHV means Hybrid Function Hoon Vehicle, with the normal 1.6-liter four-cylinder replaced with a Pipo Moteurs-built, 2.0-liter EcoBoost four that’s based largely on the original motor. It produces roughly 650 hp and 660 lb-ft of torque. Block’s Fiesta RS WRC will also get to 60 mph in 1.8-seconds. Holy tits…
In case you’ve missed the first 4 Gymkhana videos, below the 5th one I have all of them in order from 1-4 available for your viewing pleasure.
