For Gymkhana Seven, Ken Block will be driving a brand-new car, according to a press release issued by Hoonigan Nov. 4. The car in question is a one-off, the world’s first all-wheel drive 1965 Ford Mustang notchback, called the Hoonicorn RTR.
On display at the Ford Booth at SEMA 2014, the Hoonicorn was modified by RTR and ASD Motorsports. The greatest modification made to the Mustang, aside from the AWD setup, is the 410 cubic inch Roush Yates V8 engine that churns out a whopping 845 hp.
“I’m stoked to be able to publicly unveil this car for the first time at SEMA in the Ford booth,” said Block in the press release. “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 Mustangs 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.”
To see the car for yourself, swing by the Ford booth at SEMA or wait patiently until the new Gymkhana is released.
