Video: Ken Block presents the Gymkhana Three Ford Fiesta


Ken Block is a great rally driver, but his popularity really took off when he decided to drift his Subaru Impreza WRX STI and call the video Gymkhana. This sparked a true phenomenon and Internet fame was guaranteed for the American driver.

But given his move from Subaru to Ford, many thought the wild rides will be over. Not a chance, as Block revealed yesterday the customized Ford Fiesta he will use this summer for Gymkhana Three.

Worried it won’t live up to expectations set by the Impreza? Relax, as this Fiesta has been modified by Olsbergs Motorsport Evolution, who added a special-built turbocharged 2.0-liter engine capable of a whopping 850 HP. The power rating was limited to 650 HP and 660 lb-ft of torque for the future Gymkhana Three video, but it’s still mighty impressive.

The power is going to be controlled by a MSE Maktrak six-speed sequential transmission, that will send it to all four wheels. 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) time for the little Fiesta? A supercar-crushing 2.0 seconds flat.

Ken Block also released a smoke-filled teaser video with the Gymkhana Three Ford Fiesta, so hit the jump and check it out.
