Ken Block gets 850bhp Gymkhana Ford Fiesta

Not content with just producing a WRC car for Ken Block, Ford has also built an all-new Gymkhana version for the US rally star as the manufacturer ramps up the Fiesta's American marketing assault.

The Gymkhana THREE Fiesta is emblazoned with similar livery to Block's Rally America car, but underneath the bonnet it gets a custom-built 2.0-litre engine capable of developing an astonishing 850bhp.

For the sake of traction the powerplant has been restricted to 650bhp, but Ford still reckons it will rocket to 60mph in 2 seconds. The manufacturer has released a teaser video of the new car in action, but we won't see a new Gymkhana video until the summer.
