Ken Block’s Hoonicorn V2 Mustang

1400 horsepower and no apologies

-

In the annals of automotive videos, few people have carved a niche as great as Ken Block. Starting in 2010, Ken produced three Gymkhana 3 videos with his Ford Fiesta, which brought him world-wide fame beyond his Subaru exploits on “Top Gear.” Ken’s prowess became a “thing” on social media, a trademark of sorts and a demonstration of what could be done with driver skill and monster horsepower.

But for those of you not in-the-know, Ken has been a professional rally driver since 2005 and is currently a member/co-owner of the Hoonigan Racing Division. While not one of the official Hoonigan competition cars, this 1965 Mustang “Hoonicorn” V2 was on display at SEMA 2022 showing off the updates to its 845-horsepower Roush Yates 410ci, such as a pair of Garrett GTX3584RS turbochargers and a nifty Borla Exhaust system. Power output is now an astounding 1400 horses and 1,250 lb-ft of torque, which is directed through a Sadev SC90-24 6-speed rally transmission.

Lead Writer Diego Rosenberg is a native of Wilmington, Delaware and Princeton, New Jersey, giving him plenty of exposure to the charms of Carlisle and Englishtown. Though his first love is Citroen, he fell for muscle cars after being seduced by 1950s finned flyers—in fact, he’s written two books on American muscle. But please don’t think there is a strong American bias because foreign weirdness is never far from his heart. With a penchant for underground music from the 1960-70s, Diego and his family reside in the Southwest.
