Take a look inside Ken Block's garage
This is not a normal collection. But then we're not dealing with a normal person...
Ford Fiesta ST RX43
The star of Gymkhana 5 was a 600bhp Fiesta developed for KB’s assault on the 2013 Global Rallycross Championship, and capable of 0–60mph in under 2.0secs. Just as well – its course involved outmanoeuvring a giant spiky wrecking ball.Advertisement - Page continues below
Ford Focus RS RX
Last spotted hanging its tyres out over a dock in Gymkhana 9, this Focus was also his 2016 World Rallycross Championship car. Its engine is smaller than the road-going RS (2.0-litre versus 2.3), but with 600bhp, far mightier. Drift mode is compulsory.
Ford Mustang Hoonicorn RTR
You might have seen this one giving Matt LeBlanc a gentle sightseeing tour of London, or taunting lowriders in Gymkhana 7. Either way, you’re unlikely to forget a 1965 Mustang slammed and boosted to 845bhp with a madman behind the wheel.Advertisement - Page continues below
Ford Escort MkII RS
Once a 1978 Escort MkII RS, then a tarmac rally car, now a full-bore rear-drive Hoonigan special with 333bhp from a nat-asp 2.5-litre four-cylinder (that revs to 9,000rpm) and a six-speed sequential gearbox. Yet to star in a Gymkhana video, but it can’t be long, surely?
Ford F-150 Raptortrax
Ken isn’t picky about what shape the tyres he destroys are. This is an F-150 Raptor, featuring snowboard racks, a roof basket and a rear-mounted winch. More importantly it has a 6.2-litre V8 and four Mattracks – perfect for carving up the piste, in the wrong direction.
Subaru Impreza WRX STI
The one that started it all. In 2008 Block took his 530bhp 2006 WRX STI to an airfield, gunned it down the straight and then, without warning, flicked it into a massive drift, a drift that changed everything. Gymkhana 1 has 15m views and counting.
Ford Fiesta ST HFHV
The Hybrid Function Hoon Vehicle might have a silly name, but as well as performing in Gymkhana 4 it has the ability to be adapted for Rallycross racing and stage rallies. A mere 350bhp from its 2.0-litre turbo might sound puny, but 0–60mph in 2.3 isn’t.Advertisement - Page continues below
Ford Mustang Hoonicorn RTR V2
Very few people will look at the Hoonicorn and see further potential, but the Hoonicorn V2 is that potential realised. Adding two protruding turbos and methanol to the 6.7-litre V8 uncorks 1,400bhp and creates, in Ken’s words, “the most frightening thing I’ve ever driven”. Oh goody.
Can-Am Maverick Max X RS Turbo
When you live in Utah, you need something capable of pummelling the surrounding dirt tracks into submission, and taking the kids to school. This 130bhp Can-Am Maverick ticks those boxes with four seats, a custom bike rack, windscreen and doors.Advertisement - Page continues below
Ford Escort Cosworth
Yes, ladies and gents, Ken Block has bought a Cossie. An ice white, 1991 Ford Escort Cosworth rally car, to be precise.
Ken’s car is an honest example with a 400bhp, 2.0-litre turbocharged (big, laggy nineties turbos) four-pot up front connected to a seven-speed sequential gearbox sending power to all four wheels via a complicated active diff system.
Soon to be found oversteering at improbable angles in an upcoming video, no doubt...
