Say hello to Ken Block’s new WRC-spec Ford Escort Cosworth
If you thought that Ken Block’s garage couldn’t get any more ‘dope’ then think again; This is Block’s 1991 WRC-Spec Ford Escort Cosworth, and we think it’s quite possibly his best blue oval choice to date.
The world best destroyer of tyres has been busy on the outside of the car by giving it the full early 1990’s mod treatment, just check out the twin-headlamp conversion, as in when was the last time you saw that on any car. It even has what appear to be a set of old-school OZ-Racing style rally-spec rims along with a super-trick side-exit exhaust setup.
On the inside, this ‘Scort’ has been fully stripped and fitted with a full WRC spec looking interior featuring more switches that you’d find in Apollo 11 along with a host of race-spec safety gear including a cage and race seats.
The only hint of future plans for the ‘Scort’ came from Ken himself with this Twitter post hinting at the sideways greatness that's to come:
Here’s to hoping that Ken gives his new toy a full run out in a Gymkhana clip very soon the world can see what it can do on film.
