The “Friends” star Matte LeBlanc has been keeping the headlines this year due to his involvement in the new and revamped Top Gear – which has reached Season 23.
Since February and until now it appears the work duties have made him also think of a new car relationship – one that involves a high performance model nonetheless. This is because his friend Ken Block – we know him as the Gymkhana star, yes, the same one – has gone to social media to spoil LeBlanc’s acquisition of a new Ford Focus RS. The drift guru used his Instagram channel to reveal the acquisition and also told us he approved of the purchase. “My buddy/current Top Gear host Matt LeBlanc has been able to drive some of the best cars in the world right now. So what did he choose as his daily driver? A new Ford Focus RS! I approve of his decision. And bonus points for the Hoonigan license plate frame!,” commented Block.
The new Ford Focus RS is for the first time available in the United States as well, with customers able to order it already at a starting price of $36,605. For the cash they’ll get some fun moments via the 350 horsepower (261 kilowatts) and 350 pound-feet (474.5 Newton-meters) of torque EcoBoost engine. LeBlanc is currently still attached to the Top Gear show, while his co-host Chris Evans had to disembark the train rapidly because of universal fan and critical backlash in relation to his performance.
