Monster WRT has unveiled Ken Block's Ford Fiesta RS WRC challenger for the 2011 season, the same car which Block will also use in the Summer X Games, Gymkhana GRID and various other events across the U.S.

There is also a presentation video below the jump, which besides the 2011 Ford Focus RS WRC and Ken Block also features a trio of Russian girls, which are suspiciously hot, considering the snowy environment.

Ken Block will be back to 'work' in his 2011 Ford Fiesta RS WRC from February 10 to 13 when Rally Sweden stage will take place. 

WRC Rally Sweden: February 10-13

Monster WRT press release :

Ken Block and the Monster World Rally Team are upping the ante for 2011 with a bigger and broader schedule of races and events. In addition to taking on more WRC rounds this year in the all-new Monster Energy Ford Fiesta RS WRC, Block will also be competing in Summer X Games, Gymkhana GRID, and select RallyCar rallies and RallyCross events in the United States.



“2011 is going to be really big for me and the Monster World Rally Team,” says Block “We’re doing more WRC races this year, kicking off the Gymkhana World Tour, racing in Summer X Games, filming Gymkhana 4, plus hitting up a lot of other rally-related events worldwide. We even have a few top-secret projects in the works. I’m a lucky bastard to be doing all this, it’s going to be an amazing year!”

Teasing the season, MWRT is releasing a three-part video series. The first of the clips reveals the all-new 2011 Monster Energy Ford Fiesta RS WRC with its freshly updated livery. The Fortum Ski Tunnel in Torsby, Sweden set the background for this clip while the Monster Girls provided some additional eye candy.

In the second clip, being released February 9th, Block candidly answers questions posed by fans on Facebook, ranging from his favorite moments of the 2010 season, to what he’s looking forward to in 2011 and what his personal expectations are of himself during his second year of WRC development, as well as what it’s like to be going into a brand-new chassis.

The last clip focuses solely on what the fans are pining for: snow-slinging, sideways action of Block in the Fiesta WRC for the first time ever during his pre-Rally Sweden test. This final clip will be released on February 10th. In addition, Block and the Monster World Rally Team are also pleased to announce three new sponsors for the 2011 season. Joining Monster Energy, Ford, DC Shoes, Pirelli, Dirt3, Spy Optics, Hoonigan, Ryno Organics and Alpinestars will be Mobil 1 Extended Performance, Traxxas and GoPro.
