Car of the day – Ken Block’s Ford Fiesta Rally Car 600 hp 1920×1080 HD

This highly modified Ford Fiesta is powered by a 2.0-liter Ford 4-cylinder engine. The engine can produce up to 600 hp, however, if needed, it can be reduced to up to 300 hp (depends on the event). A massive turbo increases power by forcing extra air into the cylinders. The car is highly modified and all hard work paid off, because the car is not just powerful, but it’s really a fast car too.

The Ford Fiesta features an all-wheel drive system. The stock transmission is replaced by a 6-speed sequential shifting gear box. Because of its power, a stock transmission just can’t be used in such car.

The car was used in a short 9 min movie called, “Gymkhana FIVE: Ultimate Urban Playground; San Francisco”. The movie is definitely breathtaking, because it is stacked with extreme action from the beginning till the end. Ken Block was doing all kind of crazy drifting and even a big jump which looks really crazy and at the same time so breathtaking. Most of you probably already have seen it on YouTube, who haven’t seen it yet, go and check it out. Just type into YouTube search “Gymkhana FIVE: Ultimate Urban Playground; San Francisco” and you’ll find it easily. The movie is less than 10 minutes long, so you won’t miss it.

In the movie they’ve claimed that this car produced up to 650 hp and accelerated from 0 to 100 km/h or ~0-60 mph in only 1.8 seconds. It was also featured in the Five most amazing & craziest car stunts in the last 5 years.
