Ride of the Week: Ken Block’s 845 HP AWD 1965 Ford Mustang

One can’t look at a skid mark on a road or smell burning tires and not think of Ken Block’s action-packed Gymkhana series that pits an automobile against a variety of physical obstacles. With his seventh installment shot but not yet released, we do get a peek at the car he used for the stunts. Named the “HOONICORN,” it’s a 1965 Ford Mustang with a Roush Yates 410-cubic-inch Ford V8, six-speed transmission and was built by ASD Motorsports in Charlotte, North Carolina. Having ditched his rally-bred Ford Fiesta, expect the action and speed for Gymkhana 7 to be ratcheted up several notches as Block said at SEMA this year, “This is hands-down the best Gymkhana car I’ve had yet.”
