Ken Block [HOONIGAN] drifting 650HP Ford Fiesta Monster in Dubai

Postby The Stig » Mon Mar 07, 2016 3:45 pm

We all have seen Ken block and his team do wonders with the Gymkhana series and the Gymkhana 8 was shot in Dubai. Ken Block seemed to love his Ford Mustang but this time he chose the Ford Fiesta. It is the best hot hatch known to man !!

Think the hot hatch is not sufficient ? Well Ford Performance just spiced up the car to give out 650 BHP. Greater than most of the supercars that are sold today, it also has a 0 - 60 time of 1.8 seconds. Under the hood is a turbocharged 4 cylinder 2l eco-boost monster which is used power all the 4 wheels. It is also said that Ken Block's car produces 838 BHP but it is detuned to 641 BHP to get things under control.

It doesn't end there Ken has a partnership with TOYO tyres. The Ford Fiesta RX43 has specially designed tyres which can create huge smoke clouds when the car slides and twists. The paint job on the car features a black on black livery texture, which means that the hidden stars and the stripes on the car can be seen with different colors when viewed at different angles.

Watch the video to see Ken Block's Gymkhana EIGHT livery presented by Toyo Tires :

The film was shot in Dubai with all the bling bling !. A huge line up of super cars and not to forget the exotics from Dubai police department. Ken's Fiesta is also spotted racing along with the Buggati veryon. There was also a ford raptor on 2 wheels which acted as a moving obstacle while Ken did doughnuts around the truck.

For a finisher the mean machine performs stunts and drifts under a huge jet-liner for a picture perfect finale.
