Based on the 5 door version of their hallmark Ford Fiesta Mk6 Rallycross Supercar, the Ford Fiesta Hillclimb Special was constructed by the Swedish rallycross outfit Olsbergs MSE for Marcus Grönholm and Andreas Eriksson to debut it in 2009 Pikes Peak International Hillclimb. Powering this Fiesta is a more powerful version of the 2-litre Duratec Ford engine found on the OMSE rallycross Fiestas, capable of more than 800bhp.
Eventually, Grönholm will complete the Pikes Peak run in second place with a time of 11:28:963 despite some engine problems he faced earlier in the race.
