If Ken Block gets a new vehicle for 2016 then it will certainly not be off the shelf - that's for sure. 😀 The guys around the team at the in-house Ford Tuning forge "M-Sport", in cooperation with the Hoonigan Racing Division and Ford Performance, have set up a Ford Focus RS rallycross that has been modified for Ken Block and which is particularly characterized by its unique paintwork from international graffiti artist Felipe Pantone. After the tuning cure that the Ford Focus RS was allowed to endure, it has pretty much nothing in common with the production model. In addition to a 600PS four-cylinder EcoBoost engine, a wide body kit, adjustable differentials front and rear and many other gimmicks, the block vehicle is a thoroughbred racing car that even makes a Bugatti Veyron look old with a breathtaking acceleration of just 2 seconds to 100km / h has the best prerequisites for the upcoming 2016 World Rallycross Championship.
As for the changes made to the optics or the technology so we have the first details in experience. What we know we have listed as usual below in a summary. If you discovered any other changes we did not list so just use the comment box and let us know!
