You may not be able to get behind the wheel of Ken Block’s #43 Ford Fiesta, but that doesn’t mean you can’t take the smaller version out for a spin. Ken Block has teamed up with Traxxas to bring you a remote controlled version of the famous car.

This 1/16-scale Fiesta model is powered by a brushless motor that turns all four wheels and give it enough juice to hit up to 30 miles per hour. If that’s not enough for you, there’s also the option of upgrading to a pinion gear, second NiMH battery and series connector – with all the extras added on, the mini Block car can reach a top speed to over 50 mph.

You can pick up the car for about $300. You can check out a mini Gymkhanna-style video of the car in action after the jump.
