The one-off car is the result of the collaboration between Ken Block, Hoonigan Racing Division and Vaughn Gittin Jr’s automotive tuning brand RTR.
The Ford Hoonicorn RTR has been built over a period of two years at ASD Motorsports in Charlotte, North Carolina, and is now on display at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas. Based on a 1965 Ford Mustang notchback, the car was heavily modified by RTR and ASD Motorsports to feature a 410 cubic inch (6.7-liter) Roush Yates V8 producing 845 hp, mated to a one-off Sadev all-wheel drive system.
The car’s styling features a mix of influences from current WRC and DTM cars and even toy cars from Block’s youth. “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,” said Ken Block.
“I also knew that working with Vaughn 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,” he added.
