Ken Block’s All New Gymkhana Machine

Gymkhana Ford Escort

Ken Block has made quite a name for himself with his “Gymkhana” YouTube videos. All of his Gymkhana cars up to this date have been all-wheel-drive, and almost all of them were 4-cylinder turbo engines, except for the Hoonicorn.

But, he’s built an all new Gymkhana machine. He took an old 1978 Ford Escort RS, and stuck a 333rwhp engine under the hood. Combine that with the wider body, wider tires, and inherent lightness of the Escort chassis, and you have a recipe for greatness.
