Watch Ken Block's Hoonicorn V2 rip up Pikes Peak in Climbkhana
27 September 2017 - Autoblog
Hot off his last video "Terrakhana," in which Ken Block drove his rally car around a dusty off-road park, Block is back with the long awaited "Climbkhana."
For this video, Block went to the famous Pikes Peak for some stunt driving. And he also brought along the Hoonicorn V2, the second version of his V8, all-wheel-drive Mustang.
There are a lot of reasons the Hoonicorn V2 is amazing, not least of which is its twin-turbocharged 1,400-horsepower V8. But perhaps chief among those reasons now is simply its role in this video. It puts on an amazing performance with billowing tire clouds and fuel-rich exhaust spitting from the hood-mounted exhaust.
In addition, he drifts around a helicopter, gets a quick brake check by the park staff, and he comes pretty darn close to buying the farm drifting around one corner. There's also a close encounter with some snow-removal machines. The 9-minute video is well worth your time.
