One lucky person went to the 2015 SEMA Show and won a custom Ford Focus RS, and they happen to be an AutoGuide.com forum user.

The Ford Focus RS was personalized by Ken Block himself and was built to be given away as a raffle prize. Tickets costed $10 with the proceeds from the raffle going to Junior Diabetes Research Foundation International (JDRF). Upgrades to the Focus RS include an ST Suspensions coilover kit, a set of white Fifteen52 Turbomac wheels and a Hoonigan vinyl deal on the front bumper. Interior modifications include embroidered logos on the seat backs, while engine performance has been left untouched. That’s probably not a huge issue, considering the factory 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine pumps out 350 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque.

According to the winner, who took to our Focus RS forum to express his joy, he was contacted yesterday with the good news. He’s also an avid fan of all-wheel drive performance: having previously owned a Lancer Evolution, he currently pilots a Subaru WRX STI. Something tells us the WRX STI might not be long for his garage once the special Ken Block Ford Focus RS gets delivered.
