Ken Block presented a great race car

A very special car was presented today by Ken Block. The model is his Ford Fiesta RS WRC H.F.H.V. The initials, as a lot of you may wonder come from "hybrid function hoon vehicle". The car can be used as a normal rally car, but it can also be used on the roads as with a certain set up, it's legal.
The model has a 2.0-liter turbo Ford Ecoboost engine constructed by Pipo Moteur that is able to deliver 600 horsepower and 665 lb. ft. of torque. It has a Sadev 6-speed sequential transmission and also an all-wheel-drive system that was created b y the same Pipo Moteur.
The vehicle is equipped with 355 mm Brmbo WRC brake discs and 4-piston calipers, also a Reiger WRC suspension system, a Cosworth engine management and a custom-built Garrett turbocharger with a 45 mm restrictor. Last, but not least it has a dual-core intercooler. The car runs on 17-inch Speedline wheels with P-Zero rallycross tires from Pirelli.
It sounds like a great car, we'll just have to wait and see what it can really do.
