American driver and Gymkhana king Ken Block’s first rally car is up for auction. This 2002 Subaru WRX STi has the distinction of having successfully jumped 52 meters.
Who has never dreamed of playing it like Ken Block? To burn rubber by abusing your handbrake? If so, be aware that the American driver’s first rally car is on sale. This is not one of his Ford Fiestas from Gymkhana but a Subaru WRX STi with which he won his first rally in 2006.
Aesthetically speaking, the Japanese take the 2006 livery of the model but it is indeed a 2002 vintage in question. It was developed by the Vermont SportCar team in charge of Travis Pastrana’s Subaru.
(1/2) FOR SALE: slightly used 2002 Subaru WRX STi, 2 adult owner car, always babied, never abused, low mileage 🙄. That’s right, you can own the car that I drove to my first ever rally win (Rally of the 100 Acre Wood in 2006) & set a world record in for the TV show Stunt Junkies. pic.twitter.com/N3aYvzNSZa
