Ken Block's 2013 Hoonigan Racing Division Fiesta!


Ken Block and his newly formed Hoonigan Race Division (formerly the Monster Energy Rally Team) revealed their new headquarters to the world yesterday. Today, we finally get to see what his new 2013 HFHV (Hybrid Function Hoon Vehicle) and GYM3 racecars will look like. First up - woah. These vehicles look incredible. Sure, there's a bit of early 90's about the look - plus a design that takes some inspiration from a lot of Volcom patterns that we have seen.


Ken himself admits the old skool style: "With the name change to Hoonigan Racing Division, we wanted to take the look in a slightly different direction, one that has been inspired by my love of 80s and early 90s skateboarding graphics, as well as Miami Vice-era offshore powerboats and a dash of hair metal and old school hip hop mixed in for good measure,” he says.

You can find out loads more about the cars at the official Hoonigan Racing Division website. Love or hate the look, KB has got big plans for the new car, with appearances planned for X Games, Global Rallycross, Rally American, WRC, Gymkhana, Octane Academy and more...
