Celebrating 400,000 EcoBoost engines with some inspired Fiesta hooning

By Steve Turner

People love videos and companies want to go viral. So, when you combine corporate budgets with the hopes of viral buzz, the results can be pretty cool. When Ford wanted to celebrate the construction of 400,000 EcoBoost engines, the company looked no further than the Hoonigan himself for inspiration.

Producing over 400,000 EcoBoost engines is definitely cause for celebration, and what better way to mark the occasion than to slide a Fiesta Rally car through the factory.

“To mark the production of 400,000 engines, Ford Craiova team and driver Simone Tempestini—representing Romania in the World Rally Championship—created a special film inspired by the famous series ‘Gymkhana’ of Ken Block,” says the video description.

The result is dazzling imagery of a rally Fiesta jumping and sliding around a Romanian EcoBoost engine factory. Our favorite part is when Simone stops to wait for a trolley loaded with engine parts to pass, but the whole thing is pretty great. You can watch the full video here…

We have to wonder what they’ll do when they hit 1,000,000 engines? Whatever it is, we’re sure the video will be fun.

Though the first half of the EcoBoost moniker is all about fuel economy, this video makes it clear that the second half is a lot of fun.
