Talking Awesome 4WD 1965 Mustang 850HP 6.7L with Ken Block

My new fav car. Ken Block is a rally car racer and this video in spots is ridiculous.
The car suspension and placement of things is totally awesome, with a toggle switch to do donuts (see attachment pic)!. Love how he does donuts around a donut shop!
Engine is of course 8000 rpm, naturally aspirated and set back close to firewall.

Back to the article, the mustang massive do-over. This isn't just about power as the car in normally aspirated, but quite a unique build! 850 Hp for naturally aspirated is really good!
The design process was a long one, and it was constantly being critiqued and adjusted well into the first months of the build.





Obviously this project was an extremely technical one. We had to build a AWD racecar inside of an obnoxious, aesthetic-defined box.



This is the start:













Vaughn Gittin Jr.: I am so proud to say that the Hoonicorn RTR ran flawlessly during the filming for Gymkhana SEVEN – it’s massive praise for the build team. The absolute biggest reward was when Ken told me it was the most amazing car he had ever driven. Coming from a guy that drives WRC cars, that’s an incredible statement.

Cool 1965 Mustang...

A 1965 Mustang brings up memories for me.

Way back in 1967 I purchased a 1965 Ford Mustang convertible. Red exterior with white top and white leather interior. It was one of the early 65's that had the Ford Falcon dash board, which later in the manufacturing process they redesigned. Wish I had it now.

In this video he does some serious 4 wheel drive drifting. Some good under hood shots as well showing front wheel suspension and drive.
Start video @ 4:45 in to it.
