After giving a preview of the Gymkhana 3 2011 Ford Fiesta yesterday in a video posted on youtube (see Gymkhana Teaser Video and Reveal), the car was revealed last night in San Francisco.
The Gymkhana Three Fiesta features a 2.0 liter engine, boosted of course, capable of 850 HP, but will be tuned for 650 HP and 660 lb/ft of torque. The power will be limited to help create a more usable power band for the stunts performed for Gymkhana 3. “The set-up on the Gymkhana Fiesta is crucial,” says Ken Block. “The goal is to create a vehicle intended for tarmac that drives as if it was on gravel. Plus, having explosive power and a trusty handbrake goes a long way too.” The Fiesta weighs in at a mere 2,425 lbs, allowing it to be capable of 0-60 in 2 seconds, that’s right 2 seconds flat.
Stay tuned for the Gymkhana Three Video coming sometime this summer.
