Ken Block’s Ford Escort RS Cosworth Is Ready For A Full Season Of Hooning

Ken Block has been known to hoon vehicles old and new, from classic Mustangs to fresh Fiestas. This one, though, falls somewhere in between.

The master showboater’s latest ride is a 1993 Escort RS Cosworth. We first caught glimpse of the restmodded machine, which is also one of the Blue Oval’s most legendary rally cars, last October, but now Ford Performance and the Hoonigan Racing Division have revealed it in its final livery.

It’s been specially created by Death Spray Custom, which previously worked on some of Block’s other cars and also designed his new racing suit. And along with it, Ford and Hoonigan have also announced what Block intends to do with his newest toy.

Fans can look forward to seeing the Cossie in action at four rallycross events across America. Block will be behind the wheel for three American Rallycross rounds (in Austin, Canada, and one in between) as well as the World Rallycross Championship event at that same circuit in Texas.

He’ll also field a 2017-spec M-Sport Fiesta RS at the WRC rally of Spain in October and he’ll be on hand for a handful of Gymkhana GRID events in the US and abroad, too. Plus we can look forward to Gymkhana Ten to drop later this year and a new eight-part documentary series called The Gymkhana Files to air on Amazon Prime.

“I’m legitimately excited about my calendar for this season,” said Block. “I’ve really enjoyed the past few years of rallycross, but I started my race career with rally and my heart has always been with it, so to be able to get back into doing events like these while still doing some rallycross makes me very happy!”

  • Well again sorry to disappoint you, I kinda like it. Especially Block and his co driver said that they don’t aiming for championship, but purely enjoying modern classic among contemporary cars.
