Ken Block is proud to announce that he now has his very own signature vehicle. As one would guess, it’s a Ford product, but perhaps not the kind one would normally associate with the Head Hoonigan in Charge. The vehicle in question? A limited edition—and murdered out—run of M-Sport’s custom Ford Transit van!
Designed by M-Sport in the U.K. to borrow the cosmetic appearance from their highly competitive Ford Fiesta WRC racecars, the Ken Block Edition of the van features custom bodywork, a hand-crafted leather interior and special blacked-out details that carry all the way down to the headlight housings and the Ford badges front and rear. The Transits also come with an enhanced and lowered suspension setup as well as lightweight wheels. To finish out the Ken Block look, these Transits feature unique hits along the vehicle trim that incorporate the livery pattern from Block’s current Ford Focus RS RX racecar as done by international kinetic street artist Felipe Pantone. This look is also carried over into the interior and featured on the seats.
“I’m really stoked with how this collaboration turned out,” said Block. “I always thought that maybe someday I’d have a signature Ford vehicle, but I never thought that it’d be a van! Ha! I really like this thing though, it’s super practical for me since I have a wife and three kids and we travel a ton. This Ford Transit has the look and styling that I like, is fun to drive and manages to hold us and all of our stuff. We’ve been running around Norway in a test unit the last week and a half and I’m blown away by the looks and attention this thing has been getting. Plus my wife and kids like it, so it’s a win-win in my book.”
On sale later this year and available throughout Europe, more details on pricing and sales will be available later this summer.
