Ford’s Fiesta is without doubt the best-styled car in the light car segment and it’s been that way for a while. It’s unquestionably the reason why they have sold more than 500,000 of them in Europe and Asia alone.
The 1.6-litre inline four-cylinder engine can achieve up to 5.8l/100km and the ECOnetic version can get down to as low as 3.2L/100km.
But Ken Block and his Gymkhana 3 Fiesta isn’t too worried about fuel consumption, more about how much power the car can develop for his spectacular style of driving.
Powered by a 2.0-litre version of the Ford Fiesta engine, but with a Garrett turbocharger, this particular car develops an eye-popping 367 kW (493 HP) @ 8000 rpm and 743 Nm of torque @ 6000 rpm.
Transmission is courtesy of a Maktrak/Olsbergs MSE 6-speed sequential box via 4wd with front, centre and rear mechanical differentials.
It’s quick this Fiesta, how about 0-100km/h in 3.5 seconds and a top speed of almost 250 km/h, but no mention of the fuel consumption.
