If you've been waiting for someone to combine R/C cars and Ken Block's brand of gymkhana, you'll want to pay a visit to Hot Wheels. The toy maker has produced a replica of Block's rallying Ford Fiesta, and after you load the required eight AA batteries you'll be drifting it around corners WRC-style in much less time than it took Block to learn his craft.

We won't mention the center-mounted wheel under the car that makes it all a bit easier. Instead, you can scroll down to see a video of Ken Block writ small for yourself.

      Hotwheels should keep with tradition and only show this car off to consumers while not selling any. They should keep releasing videos showing the car off yet tell everyone who wants one that "nobody" would *really* buy one and this is really a *niche* hotwheels product. Hotwheels will however direct you towards the FWD Fiesta car and mention how RevoKnuckle is all the rage.

        You should buy a majority of Ford stock so you can tell them to build a really expensive AWD Fiesta that no one will buy. Either that or just shut up and overpay for a slower-than-a-V6-Mustang WRX.

        He's angry at Ford for not selling us rally prepped AWD Fiestas for $40,000.

        Your comment makes 0 sense. Mine doesn't either, I just wanted to point out that yours doesn't, more.

        It's called Sarcasm for those who don't get it. Also again, it's sarcasm for those who think I'm seriously some mad-at-the-world guy as well. Ford doesn't sell their awesome rally cars to the public. Other automakers do.... hence the sarcasm.

      I'm just going to drop this and go: The Traxxas RC car is better. Faster, more controllable, and you can turn that into an actual drift car. But if you only have $50, then go for the Hot Wheels car.

          Definitely not trying to offend you, but the Traxxas Ken Block car is going for $240 in most places (search item# TRA7308). The Traxxas car can be modified infinitely many ways just like other hobby-grade rc cars(which is really fun if you can't afford to drop $100k in a real AWD Focus rally car) . It's 4 times the price, but I think it's more than 4 times the fun : )

      They are really going to milk this Ken Block Gymkhana thing to death it seems. The first couple times I thought it was cool, but come guys it's starting to get long in the tooth.
