The Hoonicorn: A Closer Look at Ken Block’s Gymkhana Seven Mustang (Video Included)

Chances are you’ve seen Ken Block’s latest video, Gymkhana Seven.

If you haven’t, you’ll want to watch it above. It’s got a little bit of everything, including some insane driving skills by Block, a professional rally driver. Highlights include a re-creation of the O.J. Simpson low-speed, white Bronco chase and Block doing donuts around a donut shop. Block and his Gymkhana maneuvers steal the show, but we had a chance to get up close and personal with the other star of the video.

At the 2014 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Block unveiled the one-off Hoonicorn RTR Ford Mustang notchback used in the video. A collaborative effort between Block, the website Hoonigan, and Vaughn Gittin Jr.’s RTR automotive tuning brand, the Hoonicorn was built at ASD Motorsports in Charlotte, NC over the course of two years.

Billed as the first all-wheel drive 1965 Ford Mustang notchback, the heavily modified car features a 410-cubic-inch Ford V8 engine that produces 845 horsepower. A 6-speed Sadev SC90-24 all-wheel drive transmission with hydraulic handbrake system helps create all that tire smoke you see in the video. The RTR-created 1965 Ford Mustang widebody sits atop an ASD Motorsports full tube chassis and custom ASD Motorsports-designed suspension. The wheels are fifteen52 three-piece R40 18-inch rims; the 18-inch Pirelli Trofeo R tires are treated with a custom Ken Block compound.
