Ken Block takes the Hybrid Function Hoon Vehicle or H.F.H.V. Ford Fiesta out on the Streets of LA. Your probably familiar with the street legal H.F.H.V.'s three different motorsport applications, gymkhana, stage rally and rally cross.
But something you may not be aware of are the creature comforts that come inside the the H.F.H.V. Fiesta. Pulling out of the hotel in Newport Beach, CA, Ken uses the voice activation to call up friends and listen to music as he stops off in Venice, visits the Gymkhana Four set and pulls off a stunt with DC BMX rider Kelly Bolton.
“One of the things that I wanted for this car when we started putting ideas together was SYNC,” said Block. “I’ve got SYNC in my other Fords and I love it, so, we outfitted it into my H.F.H.V. for use during transits on public streets. Once my team got it in and set up, we tested it out and it worked awesome. I’m stoked to have SYNC working in the car now and I’m pretty certain that I’ve got the only racecar in the world that allows me to cue up some Jay-Z via voice activation.”
