You realize Ken Block, Hoonigan, the Gymkhana collection—and Block’s lengthy relationship with Ford. As of this year, that relationship has come to an end. It isn’t clear what model relationship is subsequent for Block, or whether or not there may be one, nevertheless it does imply that there are apparently just a few Fords that will not be a part of the driving force’s secure anymore. However they may very well be a part of yours.
Two of Block’s vehicles out there for buy are legit Gymkhana stars, the precise autos featured in 3, 6, 8, and Terrakhana—each Ford Fiesta STs. “GYM3” is a 2011 FiST constructed by Olsbergs MSE, making 600 horsepower from its 1.6-liter EcoBoost engine and rocking a MakTrak 6-speed sequential gearbox. It is sporting the dripping-paint livery from its 2010 iteration, and was the primary Ford to function in a Block Gymkhana movie—beforehand, he’d used a Subaru—and was filmed in France at an outdated “autodrome.” It isn’t clear if the automobile has any present wants, and its asking worth is on request.
“RX43” is a 2013 FiST that starred in three movies and likewise noticed competitors in World Rallycross, securing Block his first win in that collection. Developed by M-Sport, it makes 600 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque and is able to hitting 60 mph in simply 2.zero seconds. The construct is intense, as a top-flight rally construct needs to be, together with a sequential gearbox, a contest rear diff, and race-spec suspension. Once more, worth is on request.
Lastly, there’s the RS200. It feels like its early historical past is a bit mysterious, no less than based on the itemizing vendor, so for somebody on the lookout for data and provenance a extra thorough investigation might be warranted earlier than forking over the $550,000 asking worth. Nevertheless it’s claimed that it is a legit homologation model of the famed (however ill-fated) RS200 Group B automotive, which was concerned in one of many deadly crashes that ended the collection for good. This one is a highway model, allegedly upgraded to Evo spec (and good for a claimed 700 hp on pump fuel earlier than Block purchased it and set about modifying it to his style.
A customized inside, decked out in what seems to be alcantara, enhances the Recaro race buckets and matte black wrap. KW coilovers deal with damping duties, and Toyo Proxes R888R tires present grip. In fact, these are all-wheel-drive, too. Maybe it is exhausting to consider, however the vendor claims Block drove it sparingly in good climate. Neither is it clear why Block is promoting what he is beforehand described as his “dream automotive,” nevertheless it does symbolize a possibility for somebody to snag a legit Group B with a very distinctive historical past.
All of Block’s vehicles are positioned in Pontiac, Michigan at LBI Limited. Attain out if you wish to do a deal—however we won’t promise you may get a reduction in case you purchase the whole set. Does not harm to ask, although.
