Today, Ken Block is a star, the face of an empire of Mustang drag racing and energy drink branding everywhere. Back in 2006, he was just a co-founder of a shoe company running in Rally America. This is the car that changed everything.
This 2002 Subaru WRX STi, built to look like the road car circa 2006, was prepared by Vermont SportsCar, the program still building Subaru’s rallying entries today. It carries an extensive domestic rallying history in Rally America, but it is most notable for being the car that Block drove to his first-ever win, the 2006 Rally of the 100 Acre Wood. It is a real, professional-level racing car, one that was used to take on other professional competition and come out on top.
