Watch Ken Block thrash his new 1991 Ford Escort Cosworth rally car

Ken Block’s out of rallycross, but he’s not done with racing. Block is actually headed back to stage rally, but he’s not going to race in the ultra-competitive World Rally Championship against the likes of Sebastien Ogier. At least, not with his latest race car.

This car is Block’s new-to-him 1991 Ford Escort Cosworth rally car. The Escort was built to run in the WRC’s Group A class and was updated over its life to stay competitive. Block restored the car to race-ready condition and should fill his days racing it through the forests in American rally stages.

Even if he doesn’t, the 2.0-liter turbocharged I4-powered Escort looks like more than enough fun to just rip around and do all-wheel-drive donuts. Like a proper rally car needs to be, it appears Block’s Escort is registered for road use and would make one hell of a daily driver.
