Video: Ken Block’s Gymkhana in miniature

18 March, 2013 | by topgear

You’ve seen Ken Block terrorise San Francisco. You’ve seen him terrify James May. Now you can see a teeny version of his Ford Fiesta Hybrid Function Hoon Vehicle rip up a warehouse…

Yep, this is an exact 1/8 scale replica of Ken Block’s 485kW racer – complete with 4WD – ripping through a distribution warehouse to celebrate HPI’s launch of the radio controlled HFHV.

They’re powered by a 4000Kv HPI Flux Vektor motor, 2S/3S LiPo capable HPI Flux VAPOR Pro electronic speed control, have full-time 4WD and sealed, adjustable gear differentials. We have no idea what most of that means. But we do know it’ll be able to reach 96kph. It’s got a waterproof servo too, so you don’t need to worry if the going gets a bit Wales Rally GB.

Now watch, then tell us what Top Gear car you’d most like in RC flavour…
