Ken Block Ford Fiesta RS WRC Bumper Up For Auction

Back in January 2023, Ken Block – creator of Hoonigan and long-time Ford partner/race car driver – was tragically killed in a snowmobile accident, which promptly sent shockwaves across the entire industry. Many of us became fans of Ken Block not only via his Blue Oval connections and racing endeavors, but also, his many entertaining Gymkhana videos and other content. Since then, Ford Performance has paid tribute to the late Block, and his number was retired by the American Rally Association (ARA), while his daughter – Lia – is following in her father’s footsteps. Meanwhile, many Blue Oval builds belonging to Ken Block have been sold in recent months, and now, this bumper from his Ford Fiesta RS WRC racer is up for auction on eBay, too.

This Ford Fiesta WRC front bumper was present on the racer during Block’s 2015 season, and now, it’s up for grabs at part of eBay‘s special Ken Block Collection auction. The auction site is partnering with the Block family and the 43 Institute to sell some items from the late racer’s personal collection, including parts, art pieces, memorabilia, and various collectibles stemming from Block’s racing endeavors and Gymkhana series, to boot. All of the proceeds from these auctions go directly to 43 Institute, which aims to support rising motorsport talent.

This Ford Fiesta WRC front bumper is one of those special items, and it’s also sporting one of the more iconic liveries in motorsports history. On top of that, Block was quick to lavish praise on his Fiesta racer over the years, calling it one of his favorite cars ever – which is high praise, indeed.

This particular bumper saw action in a number of rallies in the 2015 WRC season, and as such, it has its fair share of wear and tear showing. However, to us, that just makes it even cooler – and more desirable – particularly given Block’s unrelenting and aggressive driving style.

Brett's lost track of all the Fords he's owned over the years and how much he's spent modifying them, but his current money pits include an S550 Mustang and 13th gen F-150.
