Four things you wanted to know about Ken Block’s Hoornicon V2 but were afraid to ask

Four things you wanted to know about Ken Block’s Hoornicon V2 but were afraid to ask

Kenny from the Block is back and this time around, he has taken his 1965 AWD Ford Mustang a.k.a the ‘Hoonicorn’ sideways up the famous Pikes Peak Hill Climb circuit in Colorado, USA. This hill is famous as it is a mountain that many have tried to climb but only a few have been able to conquer and it looks like Ken is one of them. His approach of going sideways may be a little unconventional but his videos are a hit and it seems to be working.

While Block may be the genius in creating and conceptualizing the videos, the real hero is of course his AWD 1965 Ford Mustang that has been built and designed specifically to be the star of the show. We wanted to know more about the new car and so here are our top four facts about Ken’s new ride. 

 1.    In the first generation the Hoonicorn’s 6.7-litre Roush designed V8 produced 845bhp and now with two turbochargers as well as steady stream of methanol, it now produces 1400bhp and an equally high amount of torque.

2.    The overall design has not changed and it still looks as crazy as the first time we saw it.  You get these large 21-inch wheels, forward heavy design and now colours of the American flag on the hood and engine block.

3.     It is all bare bones inside as most of the cabin is functional. You get a lever-style handbrake, digital instrument cluster and two seats- one for Ken and one for him to invite someone to be scared silly.

4.      In the video Ken, makes his way up the Pikes Peak while spinning, difiting and even trying to replicate Ari Vartanen, a two times Group B rally champion.
