The Hoonicorn's Last Ride? Ken Block's Final Drive in the 1400hp AWD Mustang Hoonicorn V2

Publicerades den 8 jan 2021
Ken Block and Ford Motor Company’s exclusive partnership has brought in some real hardware over the past decade in rally and rallycross. 19 race wins plus 17 other podium finishes, 2 X Games medals, well over a billion video views across Block’s social media platforms, and the first ever World Rally Championship points scored for the brand by an American driver. As of January 2021, that exclusivity comes to an end, with Block becoming a free agent. And that means his options behind the wheel are now wide open.
“Working with Ford over the past decade has been awesome.” says Ken Block. “From racing all over the world, to accumulating a half billion views from Gymkhana THREE to Gymkhana TEN, to creating the Emmy nominated series The Gymkhana Files for Amazon Prime - along with building a fleet of Fords including the iconic AWD Mustang Hoonicorn and F-150 Hoonitruck - it’s been a great partnership. It’s simply been a dream come true to work with the company that built the truck that my Dad drove when I was a teenager. I’m super appreciative to Ford for the support over the years, but I am also looking forward to what an unrestricted 2021 holds, and the ability to spread my wings a bit and play with a lot other toys.
2020 was a big year for Block and his Ford vehicles. He took the overall win at Rally Barbados in a WRC2 Ford Fiesta, won his class (and 3rd overall) at Rally Legend in San Marino in his Ford Escort Cossie V2, and also won the first ever Projekt E race of the FIA World RallyCross Championship in Holjes, Sweden, in a Ford Fiesta. Along with winning races, Block and Hoonigan launched the all-new viral video series,- Hoonicorn Vs The World. Spanning 11 episodes, the series features Ken racing his 1965 Ford Mustang RTR Hoonicorn against a variety of wild vehicles including a McLaren Senna and the World’s Fastest Donk. The series has been viewed over 34 million times since its launch in late November.
What does the next chapter have in store? Ken Block and Hoonigan Racing Division will be announcing new partnerships very soon. In the meantime, enjoy this video of Ken’s favorite Ford - the 1,400 horsepower AWD Mustang Hoonicorn V2 - get taken on its “last ride”.

  • Sad to see that.... But it's understandable and inevitable... I wonder if Ken will be able to keep the car(s) so we may see them as a cameo in his garage in the future...

  • Ford ...... Biiiiiiiig mistake.

  • Surely you make a video blowing up the motor

  • And Thats ! Knowing Youre Car ! Kudos !" Long Live Hoonicorn !!!

  • That's Just Beautiful to a Ford Guy !

  • Gonna miss the Hoonicofn But , i have a 68 Cougar Grew up with a family owning one the Oldest and Biggest salvage yards in Louisville KY, Abell Auto Parts & Salvage , .... i want to do this with the cougar but try to improve somehow, I Don't Think it's Possible Though !

  • Mo me I love the hoognicorn

  • 😪😪😪

  • No way is this real. It will be back

  • The hoonicorn belongs in the Smithsonian. It's iconic !

  • Partner up with Toyota

  • no goodbye

  • I was going to buy a fiesta ST or RS, but nah. Not if Ford is going to be a bitch about Hoonicorn and Block.

  • U don't know what Ur talking about

  • No thanks

  • Haha great I hope the police have been called REALLY

  • Supercharger: weeeeeeee Captions: [Music]

  • NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

  • NO GOD PLEASE NO!

  • Wonder how many sets of tires were burned up during it's life.

  • How much did it cost? And how much money will it be worth years from NOW?

  • The music at the end, made it much worse 😢

  • Bro you are a legend ✌️👍

  • Y

  • I'm trying to find Hoonicorn V2 running at a 1/4 mile track? Any info or links would be appreciated. Thanks.

  • Its a real pity that the AWD Mustang Hoonicorn did not compete against the Ferrari FXX. That would have been the best race of the centenary

  • Where can I find one of those monsters hats ?

  • Yes, the Hoonicorn is an amazing car, what car guy would not love everything about it? Except maybe the hype and PR. You know all of the races were carefully selected. I always wanted to see it go against an Alpha & Omega GT-R. I Think the Hoonicorn would of had its clock cleaned. But that would not of made for good PR. So it never happened.

  • i’m not crying you are:(

  • @Ken block next project? Audi?

  • Where is kyle?

  • Why wouldn't Ford just give him the damned thing?

  • I remember when all this came to light back in 2010. This is genuinely sad to know something that gave me so much joy will no longer be. All the best, Block.

  • its not a real good bye because we cant know what will happen in the future, who knows thats many years later he will be a racer again?but i cant know the time, we want to come back

  • Think how iconic this will be in the future

  • Go with need for speed plz

  • What no 1/4 mile runs against Leroy at least see 2 twin turbo cars racing

  • 8:05 Glitch in the Matrix. Left lane near the wide spot. WTF???

  • f

    • I remember when all this came to light back in 2010. This is genuinely sad to know something that gave me so much joy will no longer be. All the best, Block.

  • An amazing car 🔥

  • Am confused 😕 is Ken's Car or Fords Car or is a joint custody situation take for weekend drives 🤓🤓🤓

  • mea, this guy is on a long list of people that i see as a ''i couldnt win in controlled world so i made my own game up''. struggled to qual for main events is what i remember. youd be in the top 10,000 drivers i rekin...just. that we know of. ha, donk

  • Noooooo

  • This is an unwelcome surprise. Why end a relationship which brings so much credibility, loyalty and entertainment to a brand. Everyone digs the absolute shit out of any video with Ken Block + Gymkhana + Ford (especially with the Hoonicorn involved.) Those projects are unmatched by anyone. I know it's business. Maybe it was a dispute over $$. Maybe Ford wanted Ken to start doing electric vehicle stuff and Ken told them to stick it. I have no idea. But I'm disappointed. Nothing can match the entertainment value of the Hoonicorn. The visuals, the noise, the AWD and the speed are unmatched by anything which currently exists. I'm disappointed. I watch for future Hoonigan sponsorship deals with my hands over my eyes, occasionally braving a peek through a gap in my fingers.

  • Nooooo this can't be happening what am I going to do now with my life ,being a mustang owner I love this car I want it👍

  • I sure hope it’s not a final goodbye for Ken and the Hoonicorn!

  • I’m not crying, it’s just the methanol in my eyes. 😢

  • Here lies a car that killed all tires.....

  • End of an era.......

  • if anybody asks me to sum up the 20teens in one word i'll have to say 'hoonigan'..... a true icon, piloted by a true modern legend...... thanks for all the laughs you nutters!! edit.....i can't begin to imagine what comes next!!

  • This better be fake 😢

  • The disgusted router commercially flash because approval tinctorially increase but a scandalous doctor. berserk, nauseating cry

  • Just remember, John Wick didn't kill all those people over a Chevy..

  • Why not try to get in the film fast 10 when they make it

  • where is the unicorn now

  • Hoonicorn v3 coming soon

  • V3 INCOMING ?

  • Still like it but the fact that its such a douche magnet in Forza7 makes me fume every time I see it now. lol

  • what happens to the car now?

  • He sounds like that guy that was trash talking Mike Tyson then got destroyed lol what was his name again?

  • If Ford taking every single sponsor car because it’s over and Ken Block has a lot of em. They should give him this car as a trophy. It’s not fair :((

  • Yup I’m not crying either ... 🥺 best car ever

  • does this mean a hoonicorn v3???????

  • Stop Fucking around Ken and Get Monster Tajima and Sabastian Loeb and Race your lil pony against The Record Breaking Monster Sport SX-4 and The Peugeot 208 T16!!!

  • Now that I’ve watched to the end of the video. I really really hope that Ken gets to keep the Hoonicorn. And then whoever he goes to after Ford he does a mythical monster muscle car to truly challenge the hoonicorn. Like an SS Camaro or a Dodge Challenger 😈 Hoonicorn will always be my favorite though

  • By far the sickest car in the world. Ken...will you actually get to keep the hoonicorn though?😢

  • Anyone else notice the road crack after he passed by it @ 8:04? Looks like the road couldn't even handle all the horsepower at that altitude.

  • It's too sad that we'll never get to see Ken's Hoonicorn vs. Cleetus's Leroy.

  • Ken with helmet: Aggressive Ken without helmet: funny

  • The saddest day of my life

  • Kind of poetic, a gas powered AWD twin turbo driving circles around electric drive.... I'll always own gas powered cars and trucks as daily drivers!

  • first time ive heard boomer's talk about instagram (dont mean any hate )

  • Last drive with that engine. It will get rebuilt and make an appearance somewhere

  • Its sad that this is the last time we will see Ken Block master the Hoonicorn beast. But surely this won’t be the last we will see from the car. It will be amazing when will the car show up and who will be the chosen to tame it next! I hope Ford doesn’t dismantle the car. Or leave in in a museum or something to never be driven again, we want to see that car rip even more! Thank you Ken and the Hoon team and the Ford teams as well for making such unique masterpiece. There will never be a Mustang or even anything more especial and unique as this. Thank you! #HoonicornForever

  • A true legend with his pride and joy. This will forever be in automotive history as 2 great achievements of driver and machine.

  • who owns the car? if it ken owns it then we shall see it again. if FORD owns it then it will go on tour to car shows and end up in a ford museum

  • The Hoonicorn has to at least show up at Street Outlaw’s Cash Days to make a real “vs the world” challenge. 🙏🏽Please🙏🏽

  • What about the shit in need for speed 2014

  • Smoking hot donuts. Those are the best! Awesome video, awesome team, Awesome Ford.

  • Ask Nissan for if They Walt to sponsor you. You can build a insane r34

  • good, ya fraud.

  • R.i.p. 😭😭😭😭😭 goodbye dear friend... now I just want to know what’s next?

  • never !!!

  • It’s been a week and I already miss the hoonicorn

  • Hoonicorn Mark 3? ProCharger fed compound turbo setup? Methanol? False oil pans with coolant running through the false bottoms? Fully built bottom and top ends? Texas Speed Ford / Ford collab?

  • I agree with all who are present in this video

  • "Dom" say goodbye to the Charger "The Curse" (*Fast And Furious)
