For the upcoming 2016 FIA World Rallycross Championship, Ford will race two Focus RS models through Ken Block's Hoonigan Racing Division. Teased at the end of Gymkhana 8, the Ford rally racer is based off the new 2016 Focus RS with Ford Performance torque vectoring all-wheel drive. While details are scant, it's been reported that the car features a 600-hp EcoBoost engine with 664 pound-feet of torque, said to enable a 0-60 mph sprint time in under 2 seconds. Along with Andreas Bakkerud, Block will debut the Ford Focus RS Rallycross at the FIA World Rallycross event in Portugal beginning on April 15.
