Ford's insane versions of the Fiesta for Ken Block's Gymkhana and WRC cars are nothing short of mind-blowing in their ability to generate power and turn it into tire smoke, especially considering the tiny displacement of the turbo hatch. The latest take on the uber-Fiesta is a "hybrid function hoon vehicle," or H.F.H.V., made to take on three disciplines on a single chassis: stage rally, rallycross, and gymkhana.

Weighing in at just 2,755 pounds and turning out 600 horsepower and 665 pound-feet of torque from its boosted 2.0-liter engine, the car changes engine tune, suspension, and shoes as needed to fit each discipline. We dig it.

We just don't dig the use of "whip" to describe a car. Call us old-fashioned.

    Bad stuff?

     
  2. Yeah, it's a very cool concept--one I've often envisioned for my own cars. A quick suspension/wheel/tire swap, and bam, you're ready for autocross or rallycross (SCCA style, not flying over jumps) or road racing, or whatever you want to do.
