The RX43 (rallycross #43) was initially developed by M-Sport as Ken Block’s rallycross car for the 2013 Global Rallycross Championship and X Games rallycross events. It was also Block’s Gymkhana SIX and Gymkhana EIGHT picture car. RX43 is optimized for massive torque, off-the-line launching ability and is highly competitive in rallycross competitions. For FIA World Rallycross in 2014, and because RX43 was tied up with national events, M-Sport assembled an identical car that was called RX43B. Setup (suspension, differentials, engine maps, etc) is tuned to each individual event.
