That could turn out a very valuable car in a decade from now

Ken Block is selling his 2002 WRX STi. Mind you, the car has a lot of emotional baggage as it’s the one that helped Block secure his first rally victory back in 2006 and the same he used to jump 171 feet on Stunt Junkies.

The Subaru was prepped in partnership with Vermont SportsCar, which also happened to have quite the say in developing Travis Pastrana’s insane Gymkhana 2020 car. Which is also a Subaru, obviously.

Before you make a judgement against buying a heavily tuned car that has been bashed mercilessly, keep in mind that it’s Ken Block himself that’s selling it, so you can bet he took good care of it outside his usual shenanigans.

In fact, the car was kept in a climate-controlled storage unit in Utah and before the auction completes, it is going to get looked at and pampered by Ken Block’s rally team.

The boxer engine under the hood should still be good for 304 horsepower and 311 pound-feet of twist, but other than oomph, you (or whoever decides he or she needs it) will get a rally-spec race car with a bucketload of pedigree – both from being a Subaru WRX STi and one of Block’s go-fast machines.

At the time of writing, the current bid was $53,000 but with seven days left before the auction closes, there’s plenty of time for the price to go up.

Tudor’s first encounter with cars took place when he was only a child. Back then, his father brought home a Trabant 601 Kombi and a few years later, a Wartburg 353. At that time, he was too young to know how they worked and way too young to drive them, but he could see one thing – each of them had a different ethos and their own unique personality. As time went on, he started seeing that in other cars as well, and his love for the automobile was born.  Read full bio
