Ken Block's record-setting 171 foot jumping Subaru WRX STi is up for sale
It also helped him get his first national rally win in March 2006!
We all know about Ken Block and his antics when it comes to rally cars. The DC Shoes co-founder, long-time rally and rallycross driver and pop culture phenomenon has pioneered a lot of stuff in the world of cars over the years. Now you could potentially have a chance to own a bit of Ken Block's history, as a car that holds a very special place in his story is now up for sale via Wall Street Motorsports!
The car in question is a 2002 Subaru Impreza WRX STi (facelifted to a 2006 'hawkeye' look) and if it looks familiar to you, that's because it's the very same car that Block set his incredible world record of jumping 171 feet through the air on the Discovery Channel show Stunt Junkies. It also helped propel him to his first national rally win during the Rally of the 100 Acre Wood in March 2006. As you'd expect, it's been very heavily driven over the years and it's currently in the middle of having a full refresh by Block's rally mechanics. Whilst it may likely just go into somebody's private collection as a museum piece, it'll definitely be fully ready to race in case the new owner wants to get a bit dirty!
The auction for this Impreza ends on 3 March 2021, with the full buyer's fee being donated by Wall Street Auctions to a charity of Block's choosing (the Make-A-Wish Foundation). The bidding is currently up to around $53,000 so if you want a chance at owning this incredible piece of history, you'd better get in there fast!
