Ford shows off 800 HP Fiesta rally car ahead of Pikes Peak attempt [w/VIDEO]

Filed under: Motorsports, Hatchbacks, Ford


Ford Fiesta Rally car at Pikes Peak - Click above to watch video

The 87th annual Pikes Peak International Hill Climb is set for this weekend, and race teams from around the country have traveled to Colorado Springs for the legendary race to the clouds. One of those teams is from Ford Racing, which has unveiled its duo of contenders for this year's event, a pair of Fiesta Rally Cars driven by two-time WRC champion Marcus Grönholm and four-time Swedish rally champ Andreas Eriksson. While the two drivers have a wealth of experience racing on dirt and gravel, it will be their inaugural trip up the famous mountain.

Both drivers and cars were unveiled to at Phil Long Ford in Colorado Springs yesterday, and have already completed a couple practice sessions with the 800 horsepower rally cars. You can check out dozens of photos from those sessions in the high-res gallery below, and watch the entertaining unveiling of the cars in the video after the jump.

No hatchback has ever made me get the shivers like that thing.

However, 800 HP is quite far from the stock output...

I didn't see any specs or anything, anyone have more info?
