    Ken Block Unveils 845-HP AWD ’65 Mustang

    Ladies and gentlemen, meet the star of the upcoming Gymkhana 7 video.

    At the 2014 SEMA Show, Ken Block unveiled his custom 1965 Ford Mustang packing an all-wheel drive powertrain with 845 hp. As if using a classic Mustang wasn’t enough, under the hood is a Roush Yates 6.7-liter V8 with 720 lb-ft of torque brought to all four wheels through a six-speed transmission. According to Block at the vehicle’s unveiling, it’s been under construction for the past two years with ASD Motorsports and RTR.

    In order for it to survive the chaos that will likely ensue in Gymkhana 7, the ’65 Mustang features a full tube chassis, ASD Motorsports-designed suspension, roll cage, door bars, three-piece 18i wheels and custom Pirelli Trofeo R tires with a “custom Ken Block compound.”

    It's a massive "#$%# you" to all the barret jackson etc knobheads who pay 7 figures for matching numbers muscle cars with rare options like cupholders and vinyl roofs. It's just so "anti" the entire scene.

    Also, nearly 900hp

    I understand that but those unfinished fender flares anger me for some reason

    I think that the following comment speaks for the design elements which seems to have polarised the group but 845hp from a 410ci V8 and AWD is impressive.

    "It took two years to build The Hoonicorn at ASD Motorsports in Charlotte, North Carolina. The design is inspired by everything from classic American muscle to DTM racers to WRC rally cars to the toy cars Block had as a kid."

    it's prolly so tyre smoke is more quickly spread up into the air instead of being momentarily caught under the car. hah

    If all the admittedly ugly livery was replaced with a single colour it would be a great deal more impressive

    you're most likely right I just think it looks full on helmet class
     
  13. Ken Block Unveils 845-HP AWD ’65 Mustang

    I like the fact it looks like a DRM-era Mustang in profile.
    And that's really about it.

    Because it looks like every single car at SEMA this year. Those flares are "Rocket Bunny" style, they are everywhere now. Hell there is a Subaru SVX driving around here with his own custom Rocket Bunny-style rivet-on flares.

  17. Ken Block Unveils 845-HP AWD ’65 Mustang

    I like the idea of that, but I also think this looks dumb.
     
  22. Ken Block Unveils 845-HP AWD ’65 Mustang
