Ken Block is selling three of his ballistic Fords
Collection includes two Gymkhana Hoonigans and his personal Ford RS200
Break-ups are tough. Just ask Ken Block, who, having parted ways with Ford earlier this year, is now selling three of his most-prized possessions.
The Gymkhana legend is selling three cars from the Ken Block Collection, namely the 2011 Fiesta ST GYM3, 2013 Fiesta ST RX43 and - arguably the pick of the bunch - his very own 1986 RS200. Allow us to talk you through each of them.
We’ll start with the former. The Fiesta ST GYM3 was the car that kick-started Block’s partnership with Ford, starring in Gymkhana Three and earning him a cult following in the process. And, unsurprisingly, this isn’t your regular learner-friendly Fiesta: it features an Olsbergs 2.0-litre turbocharged engine with over 600bhp and 660lb ft of torque, plus a seam-welded chassis, roll cage and widened body built to withstand Block’s antics.
Next up is the Fiesta ST RX43, star of Block’s Gymkhana Six, Eight and Terrakhana films and responsible for countless sets of shredded tyres. This time, it features a Pipo-designed 2.0-litre turbocharged engine, Sadev six-speed sequential gearbox and M-Sport custom designed body and interior. It also featured in a race against Lewis Hamilton’s Formula One car and powered Ken to his first-ever Global Rallycross win. Not just a local hooligan, after all.
Last but not least is Block’s very own 1986 RS200, or, in his own words, his “dream car”. Makes you wonder why he’s getting rid really, doesn’t it? It’s number 80 of only 200 built for Group B homologation rules. This one’s modded - of course - with power coming courtesy of a 2.1-litre turbocharged engine producing over 700bhp.
It also features a unique matte black wrap, Recaro bucket seats, KW coilovers and white Rotiform wheels. And, need we remind you, this one’s road legal too…
We reckon it’s safe to say that you shouldn’t expect any of these to come cheap, with the only listed price slapped on the RS200 – $550,000 (just shy of £400,000), in case you’re interested. Still, that’s one way of banishing any memories of previous partners to the past, eh?
