Scary Factory Ford is Ken Block’s Dream Car
24 Nov 2017
Legendary rally driver Ken Block has added two super cool Ford cars to his extensive garage collection. Expected to feature in the eagerly awaited Gymkhana 10, the 1993 Escort RS Cosworth Group A and 1986 RS200 Evo are ridiculously fast monsters. They perfectly complement his stunning 1400 twin turbo Ford Mustang.

As a mid-engined, purpose built rally car, the RS200 is powered by a 1.8l four-cylinder engine that is force-fed by a large turbo. Kept cool by a intercooler that is roof-mounted, it is made up with Sierra parts, along with dual shocks that are optimised to create the ultimate rebound experience. When the 1987 season came around, Ford had wanted to introduce an ‘Evolution’ edition that included a fully upgraded 2.1 BDT engine. When the Group B engine was banned, only 24 were produced with an output of between 600 and 800 bhp.
The number of Evo’s around is impossible to guess, as many were tuned to way beyond their original outputs. But we know is that the car will lighten itself when above 900bhp. A general lack of legroom can cause headaches. As an ultra-rare sight on the roads of the United States of America, another is said to be owned by actor and comedian Tim Allen.
