Ken Block Lets Ryan Tuerck Hoon His Bonkers Escort MK2

Apparently Ken Block is too busy melting tyres with his legendary Hoonicorn these days so he gave the keys to his newly revealed Ford Escort mk2 tarmac Gymkhana toy to fellow maniac Ryan Tuerck.

Packing a naturally aspirated four-cylinder 2.5-litre engine that can rev up to 9000rpm sending 333hp to the rear wheels via a six-speed sequential gearbox, this Escort represents the ultimate rear wheel-drive Gymkhana car, according to Ken Block himself.

This is a special personal project as it’s actually his first Ford rally car and with the build finished now, Ken Block plans to feature his new toy on many productions featuring known guest drivers like Ryan Tuerck behind its wheel.

If you are a fan of big, smokey clouds made entirely out of destroyed tyres and you happen to love Escorts (who doesn’t?) head over to the video and press play.
