Just a couple of months after Ken Block and Ford ended their 10-year relationship, it appears that Block is also thinning out his personal garage just a bit. As we reported yesterday, Block has listed his beloved 2013 Ford Fiesta ST RX43 for sale, but he’s also selling his self-proclaimed dream car – this super rare 1986 Ford RS200 Evolution – via LBI Limited for the cool asking price of $550,000.
Just 200 examples of the homologated racers were conceived to dominate Group B in the World Rally Championship, and this one features a number of upgrades that make it truly one of a kind. We’ve seen numerous Ford RS200 Evolution and regular RS200 examples go for big bucks in recent months, so the asking price on this customized example doesn’t seem too far-fetched by any means.
Out of the 200 RS200s built, only 24 were upgraded to EVO specifications. This one of those two dozen managed to accumulate very few miles over its first many years of ownership before it was acquired by Block in 2017. From there, the team at Hoonigan Racing gave the Evo a black paint job, matte black vinyl wrap, and a custom suede interior with Recaro bucket seats and five-point harnesses.
The rally machine’s 2.1L EVO-spec engine cranks out a healthy 700 horsepower on regular gas or 800 raging ponies on race fuel, which is more than enough to get sideways via the custom hand brake. The car rides on KW coilovers and custom white Rotiform wheels wrapped with Toyo R888R rubber.
As is the case with all of Block’s cars, this RS200 Evolution has seen some hooning, but far less than the rest of his fleet. That’s because he clearly loved this car more than most, and who can blame him? Any RS200 is a truly special piece of rally history, and any fan of the sport would love to have one of these legendary machines in their garage – especially one owned by Ken Block.
