I don't understand why they put all the timeattack style aero on for basically an autocross car.

 

It wouldn't get as much e-fame if it was stock looking though. It's all about the publicity.

The wing ruins it for me.  Also if they went for a more rally style body kit, but more aggressive it would possibly look nicer than this time attack looking kit.

 

Also Is it just me or does it look like the front was designed by a different person to the back?

From what I have seen, time attack cars are 100% business... looks do not come into it.. so at a guess what is at the front just works... as does what is at the back... style doesn't come into it.

 

Could be wrong... also, this isn't a real time attack car... so probs just some s*** house designing going on.

They could have added some spice to the old Isle of Man style car and a big lift and it would have looked miles better

Yep totally get that time attack stuff is the business and it looks really cool and it does work.....on a time attack car. 

 

Given that its not a time attack car and gymkhana is more about show than anything else, it deserves to look nicer.

Well gymkhana is about car control... Ken Block has turned it into a spectacle ... but the key thing here is that it's low speed... so aero is pointless.

Looks more like a time attack build than a gymkhana car, but if Pastrana is involved it will work despite the looks

 

Speaking of Travis and Subaru, keep any eye on Brandon Semenuk, just joined the Subaru US rally team, easily one of the best MTB riders on the planet and slaying it in the US rally champs already

Ken is a much better showman and businessman than rally driver

You can't compare him to a professional driver... he's a rich guy living the dream.

Sign up for Uber and you are a professional driver

 

He is a very good driver, but clearly not a good enough rally driver to be driving for Ford in the WRC, or even taking on Travis and Brandon in the US Champs 

 

Also better payback for Ford in Ken doing burnouts than wrapping hideously expensive WRC cars around things

Context is everything here. Not talking about driving trucks, trains, buses or taxis for a living.

Interesting to see it's a stroked EJ20 vs the 25 they've been stuck with in the US

 

 

Ask @Niran 

because sleeves are needed from the thinner walls and guessing as they liked the rod ratio.

No airbag for the driver, how does that get over the line?

 

The contrast between the exterior and the interior is hilarious

 

Push the boat out, do a custom interior in the same colors, it might make sense then and at least you could put show car next to the price tag

As a meta-thing, this video showcases f***ing everything that is wrong with America right now. A bunch of people flying cross-country in the middle of a pandemic so they can make some w**ky marketing video for the social media likes. People wearing masks around their chin, half of them not wearing them at all. GG USA, this is why you're f***ed.
