Description

The example on offer here, chassis SFACXXBJCGL00080 is a 1986 Ford RS200 owned by professional rally racer and youtube sensation, Ken Block. It is one of only 200 ever built and making it even more unique is the fact that it was upgraded to EVO specifications. Not a great deal is known about the early life of this particular RS200 but it is believed to have been sold to its first owner, who resided in Norway, in December of 1987. According to available information, it appears the car was used incredibly sparingly, accruing just 456 kilometers by 2006. It was acquired by Ken in 2017 after he spent years lusting over them and the Group B era of racing as a whole. Once it arrived back in the Hoonigan Racing headquarters, his team set about customizing the car to take Ken’s dream car and personalize it to his style. The cosmetics of the car were updated to match the rest of the Hoonigan Racing fleet with a stealthy gloss black paint job and complimenting matte black vinyl wrap on the exterior. The interior received an update with custom suede throughout the cockpit and deep-set Recaro bucket seats with 5-point harnesses. A custom upgraded hand brake was added to the car should Ken need to…get the rear end a little loose! The 2.1-liter EVO spec engine in its current tuning configuration is said to produce 700hp on pump gas and over 800hp on race gas. It is matted to a custom 6-speed sequential gearbox. The suspension was also updated to KW custom coil overs, no small task as you can’t exactly just order custom suspension for an RS200 out of a catalog! The wheels on the car are a set of custom Rotiform wheels finished in white with Toyo Proxes R888R tires.

As it sits today, Ken’s dream car remains in great condition and has been well maintained by the professionals at Hoonigan Racing. Unlike the rest of Ken’s fleet, this RS200 was treated with a bit more special care and saw minimal hooning (which must have been difficult for someone like Ken!) as well as being mostly driven under nice weather conditions. There are some minor imperfections on the exterior in high wear areas, such as some minor rock chipping on the front bumper, as well as some slight bubbling in the matte black wrap in a few spots, but overall the outside of the car presents very well. The interior of the car is likewise relatively clean and tidy thanks in large part to updating it received when it was purchased by Ken.

Most recently the car underwent some minor service work to aid in better driveability and roadworthiness.

The opportunity to own a full-fledged Group B rally car for the road is quite special in itself but when you add in the fact that it was owned by a professional rally driver and the original Hoonigan himself, the importance of this car cannot be overstated! This is the ultimate chance to live out a special era of rally racing history from the very seat that Ken Block himself has enjoyed for years.
