If you want to star in your own Gymkhana videos or just immediately have a competitive rally machine, Hoonigan Racing Division is selling Ken Block's Ford Fiesta HFHV (Hybrid Function Hoon Vehicle) on Motorsport Auctions. Getting your chance to slide it like Block costs just 250,000 pounds ($357,180 at current exchange rates).

A Ford Fiesta World Rally Car forms the basis for the HFHV, and the Hybrid part of the name references its ability to compete in rallies, Global Rallycross, and do Gymkhana duty. Rather than the usual 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, this one has a 2.0-liter turbo engine with 600 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque when a 45 millimeter restrictor is in place. The racer also has a Sadev Rallycross transmission and upgraded rear differential for improved reliability. The listing claims this setup allows the powertrain to be dependable during the amazing automotive stunts in the Gymkhana videos.

In addition to appearances in the immensely popular YouTube series, Block won the 2015 Rally of Whangarei in New Zealand with this Fiesta. Hoonigan already fully rebuilt the car for the future buyer to start competing immediately, and the sale comes with the parts to convert it back to rallycross specifications, too.

The next owner has a hard choice to make, though. The HFHV is still ready to compete at a high level. However, the connection to Block and the Gymkhana series could make this a future collector's item. Balling the car up on a rally stage or destroying it in rallycross wouldn't be good for the value down the road, but most people would still feel the drive to enjoy this superb vehicle. It's a dilemma many of us would love to face.
