Thankfully, the money is going to a good cause.
Few professional drivers have managed to capture the imaginations of car fans around the world quite like drift enthusiast Ken Block. This man is known worldwide for his insane stunts and insanely cool cars. He is also a giving guy and recently sold his 2016 Ford Focus RS RX for an astonishing $200k, with all of the money going towards Team Rubicon, a charity organization dedicated to bringing relief to those affected by disasters. The car was auctioned off by Barret-Jackson which is well known for its charitable causes.
The Ford Focus on sale featured in Ken Blocks "Gymkhana Nine Raw Industrial Playground' video, which has racked up over 45 million views on YouTube. This is a fully-built rallycross car that's spent its life on the race track in front of millions. Powering this beast is a 600-horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine featuring a massive Garrett turbocharger. The car rides on a seam-welded and reinforced chassis and a set of Rieger coilovers. Power is sent to the wheels via a Sadev five-speed sequential transmission, Sadev rear differential, and a Sadev center differential release unit. The interior features a homologated FIA-spec roll cage and M-Sport multi-function bespoke steering wheel.
Ken Block was grateful for all the support shown at the auction: "We raised $200k for Team Rubicon at the Barrett-Jackson auto auction yesterday!! That $200k will go to help support Team Rubicon's efforts to aid in disaster and humanitarian needs, including the recent hurricanes and Covid-19 relief. BIG thanks to everyone, including the new owner of my Ford Focus RSRX, along with Barrett-Jackson for helping support this great cause."
