Sebastien Loeb is Europe’s Ken Block [Video]
text size: A- A+
The maneuvers he manages to pull off are made slightly easier than they would be in a different car, simply because the DS3 WRC has a very short wheelbase, compared to other similar cars, and it is very agile and easy to throw around. It features a 1.6-liter engine, which pumps out 300 hp at 6,000 rpm, and 350 Nm of torque at 3,250 rpm.
Its WRC-spec front and rear auto-locking mechanical differentials also help keep all four wheels spinning at the same time, allowing Loeb to do a few Ken Block-esque maneuvers, and he even manages to get the tires to smoke, despite the fact that it was snowing outside, and quite wet.
