Ken Block reveals his new racer
Fear not, Internet. Ken Block hasn’t conceded victory to the overseers of environmental protection and got himself a super-efficient electric racer. No, what he has got is a transforming Fiesta.
Let us explain. Block is engaged in a few motorsport disciplines but requires just one car to cover all bases. Therefore, he needs his car’s underbits to be as interchangeable as Lego. And that’s what he’s got.
Meet the Hybrid Function Hoon Vehicle, a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-pot Ford Fiesta RS WRC car built to be as flexible as Captain Slidey’s most slideyest slide. Its engine can produce as much as 600bhp and 665lb ft of torque, while the suspension, wheels and ECU can all be adjusted to meet Mr Block’s varying requirements.
Now let him explain. Via the medium of moving pictures.
