Lose Yourself in the Wild Hoonigan Ford Focus RS RX Liveries
DO NOT. STARE. DIRECTLY. AT. THE FOCUS (how’s that for ironic?). Seriously, these things have so many zig and zags and tags and flags that you might actually lose track of time when you’re inspecting the new designs.
These, kids, are the brand new liveries for the 2016 Ford Focus RS RX, which will be driven by Ken Block and Andreas Bakkerud. With the new car, the Hoonigans decided to try something they’d never done before: team up with an independent street artist to craft what the exterior of these filthy machines were going to look like. The guy they landed on is Spanish-Argentinian graffiti and kinetic artist Felipe Pantone, whose work is equally beautiful and mesmerizing.
“I’m really stoked that I was able to partner with Felipe Pantone on this,” said Block. “I’m a huge fan of Felipe’s work and I think it’s awesome that we were able to work together and have him create bespoke art in his signature style for us, that we were then able to translate to both new Ford Focus RS RX racecar, as well as on to Andreas’ car, but that also worked equally well for Hoonigan and my other partners on a bunch of apparel and product.”
The cars will make their first appearances at round 1 of the FIA World Rallycross Championship in Portugal on April 16 and 17.
