Ken Block’s Ford Focus RS RX sold for a whopping sumOctober 27, 2020
The money raised from the sale of the unique Ford Focus RS RX will go to a good cause.
Few professional drivers have succeeded in capturing the imaginations of car enthusiasts around the world, such as drift fan Ken Block. This man is known all over the world for his crazy stunts and insanely cool cars. Plus, he’s quite generous and recently sold his 2016 Ford Focus RS RX for an astonishing $ 200,000, all of which went to Team Rubicon, a disaster relief charity. The car was auctioned off by Barret-Jackson, a well-known charity company.
The sold Ford Focus was featured in Ken Block’s video “Gymkhana Nine Raw Industrial Playground,” which has over 45 million views on YouTube. It is a fully prepared rallycross vehicle that has spent its life on the racetrack in front of millions.
This “beast” is powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 600 horsepower and a massive Garrett turbocharger. The vehicle runs on a welded and reinforced chassis and Rieger coilovers. Power is sent to the wheels via a Sadev 5-speed sequential transmission, a Sadev rear differential and a Sadev center differential lock. The cabin features an FIA-certified roll cage and an M-Sport multifunction steering wheel.
“Yesterday we raised $ 200,000 for Team Rubicon at the Barrett-Jackson Auto Auction. The $ 200,000 will go to support the Rubicon team’s disaster relief efforts and humanitarian needs, including recent hurricanes and Covid-19 coronavirus relief. Many thanks to everyone, including the new owner of my Ford Focus RSRX as well as Barrett-Jackson for helping support this great cause, ”said Ken Block for all the support provided at the auction.
While Block does great things while teaching his daughter how to drift, he is also gearing up for the electric car revolution with some interesting proposals from Ford.
