Ford Escort RS Mk2 gets the Ken Block Treatment

 

Ford Escort Hoonigan 2

Tyre shredding legend has picked out a British motoring legend for his next Gymkhana vehicle.The Legendary Escort RS Mk2 is Ken’s first ever RWD Gymkhana car. The 1978 Ford Escort personally owned by Ken Block was purchased with a view of competing in a tarmac rally series in the United States. Unfortunately that never happened so Ken decided to handover his beloved Escort to the Hoonigan development team to create his next Gymkhana weapon.

The Escort RS is built to tope level World Rally Championship tarmac specification. Powered by a 2.5 litre four cylinder engine capable of putting 330bhp through the 6 speed sequential gearbox. The custom rocket bunny wide arch body kit adorns the Escort giving it that unmistakable aggressive stance makes it look quite at home in Ken’s fleet with his Ford Fiesta Global Rallycross car and the all wheel drive Ford Mustang Hoonicorn.
