How the hell did he do it?!
The SEMA show is always a stunning event to go to; amazing rides, a ton of beautiful women, raffles and a bunch of other cool stuff. Speaking of raffles, there was one where the prize was a one-off Ford Focus RS customized by no one other than hooning specialist Ken Block. Each raffle ticket was only $10 and all ticket earnings were given to the Junior Diabetes Research Foundation International (JDRF). So besides getting a Ford Focus RS for around the same cost as a pricey cocktail, what else did the lucky winner get?
The custom work from Block includes an ST Suspensions coilover kit, a set of white Fifteen52 Turbomac wheels and a Hoonigan decal on the front bumper. The interior of the hot hatch received the hoonigan blessing with embroidered logos on the rear seats. How cool is that!? The engine was left untouched which is perfectly fine considering that the hot hatch produces 350 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque from its 2.3-liter Ecoboost engine. According to AutoGuide, the winner is an AutoGuide forum user and he has a deep passion for all-wheel drive performance. This makes perfect sense because he owned a Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution and now owns (now more like owned) a Subaru WRX STi. Now that is a way to end a trip to the SEMA.
