Renowned for his high octane antics and custom built race cars on YouTube, Block has made an art form out of high risk driving with smoke continuously pouring off all four wheels. His new car for the seventh installment of his Gymkhana series is no exception.
Starting off life as a 1965 Ford Mustang, Block’s latest car, dubbed “the Hoonicorn”, has been two years in the making. Built by ASD Motorsports in Charlotte,
North Carolina, the Mustang notchback is thought to be the world’s first performance all wheel drive 1965 Ford Mustang.
The wait has obviously been worth it for Ken Block, with Ford Motors borrowing the car to star in their booth at the annual SEMA show in Las Vegas.
“I’m stoked to be able to publicly unveil this car for the first time at SEMA in the Ford booth,” said Block.
“This is a project that I’ve been working on for two years, so to see it fully come to fruition and be able to drive it for Gymkhana SEVEN was absolutely amazing. I also knew that working with Vaughn [Gittin Jr.] and his RTR team was the right choice for this project since Mustang’s are their world,
but they really went above and beyond on this car. The attention to detail with the fabrication and bodywork blows my mind. This is hands down the best Gymkhana car I’ve had yet.”
With a huge Roush Yates 410 cubic inch Ford V8 powering the all four of the iconic American car’s wheels with 630kW and a tyre burning 976 Nm of torque this is one monster pony car.
