Ken Block Gymkhana Ford Fiesta Dodgers Stadium - Web Exclusive

Fifteen52 wheels fifteen52 Tarmac wheels on Ken Block’s new 600hp Gymkhana car.

Jul 25, 2011

Over the weekend we witnessed the debut of Ken Block’s new Ford Fiesta RS nicknamed the Hybrid Function Hoon Vehicle, or HFHV for short. The Fiesta is based on the WRC Ford Fiesta RS but with a Focus RS WRC 2.0L engine in order to meet three different requirements; Gymkhana, Rallycross and USA stage rally.

For Euro fans, one of the most exciting aspects of the weekend was not that Ken’s new car makes 600hp and 665 lb-ft from its 2.0-liter four-cylinder Ford EcoBoost engine, or that it has Cosworth engine management or Brembo 355mm rotors with four-piston calipers, but that its sporting fifteen52 Tarmac wheels!

Known to Euro enthusiasts across the country, the company is located in Newport Beach, CA and has been around the Euro tuning scene since 1996. The latest Tarmac wheel joins the existing “snowflake” wheel and is their first motorsport wheel. So you can imagine how thrilled they are to have it on Ken’s Fiesta.

The creation of the Tarmac wheel came from Brad Beardow and Matt Crooke’s love of old school motorsport wheels. Like the Snowflake wheel, the plan was to take an old school design and thoroughly modernize it. With an elegant design, the Tarmac’s motorsport quality made it an obvious choice for Ken’s new Gymkhana car becomes.

The Monster World Rally Team has been working with fifteen52 to create a custom XL bolt pattern for the Ford Fiesta RS rally car. They also plan to make the same 18x8.5” wheel on Ken’s Fiesta available to the public.

The Tarmac will be appearing in the new Gymkhana 4 video that will be released on August 16th. In the meantime, checkout fifteen52’s website for more information on the new Tarmac wheel – fifteen52.us/
