The 10 sickest cars Hoonicorn beat in a straight line by Ken Block

Ken Block is one of the sport’s most talented and exciting professional rally drivers. In 2010 he founded the “Monster World Rally Team”, which later became known as the “Hoonigan Racing Division”, in order to be able to compete better at world championship level in rallying. Block then decided to build the ideal competition car, a custom race car that would drive like a rally car and look in part like a WRC, DTM and classic IMSA race car. The result is the incredibly amazing ’65 Ford Mustang Hoonicorn V2.

Originally sending out 800 horsepower, the Hoonicorn’s upcoming trip to Pike Peak meant that for Block’s Climbkhana video in 2017 ford Mustang needed a performance upgrade. So the Hoonicorn received a pair of turbos that boosted its output to an insane 1,400 horsepower, making it one of the wildest purpose-built racers of all time. The Hoonicorn is insanely fast, and to show off its abilities, Block created “Hoonicorn vs. the World” in which the fire-breathing car competes against various incredible cars in a straight line. Amazingly, Hoonicorn has defeated almost all of its challengers, including these extremely formidable vehicles.

The Hoonicorn has rivaled several high-performance cars in the past. This time, however, it was pitted against a powerful straight-line speed monster dubbed the fastest Toyota MR2 in the world. It’s a second generation W20 built by BoostedBoiz.

The car features a fully tuned Honda K-Series engine with a massive turbo and an output of around 1,300 hp, setting its land speed record with a quarter mile sprint of 7.982 seconds at 181.94 mph. However, in a 1000-foot race, the so-called fastest MR2 could not defeat the Hoonicorn even by a three-car margin.

With Ken Block’s daughter Lia at the wheel of the Hoonicorn, however, the souped-up berlinetta was no match. The Hoonicorn overtook the Berlinetta by a bus length, despite the tires smoking at the start.

Here we have the fastest production Ford Mustang ever at the time of this race in 2020. It’s a 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 that’s been tuned and supercharged to produce 760 hp and 625 lb-ft of torque, all at 5,000 rpm to the rear wheels.

With the setup, the 4,171-pound Mustang possesses breathtaking acceleration from a standing start to 60 mph in just 3.3 seconds, while top speed is limited to 180 mph. Nonetheless, even with NASCAR driver Chase Briscoe at the wheel, the fastest production Mustang ever was destroyed by Hoonicorn.

Speaking of sick cars, the 2019 Ford GT Carbon Edition was among the sickest cars out there when it raced in the 2020 Hoonicorn. Exactly, this model was Ford’s most capable track machine at the time. The car has been upgraded for Le Mans racing duties and features true aerodynamics, a carbon fiber body and a twin-turbo V6 with an impressive 660 hp.

Those are all great stats, but they didn’t stand a chance with the rampaging hoonicorn. On D-Day, Hoonicorn crushed poor GT on all three attempts.

The 1982 Oldsmobile Cutlass is a legendary classic car, but the last thing it should go through is a speed contest with one of the most capable and dynamic automotive speed monsters out there. However, this classic car can hold its own. Structurally, it’s just an old guard.

Pop the hood and you’re greeted with a 1,000-horse-producing ProCharged 427 LSx courtesy of Texas Speed, which is then mated to a four-speed automatic transmission. Still, all this awesomeness Hoonicorns couldn’t take brute force.

Sage Thomas, aka “Donkmaster,” owns this ’71 Chevy Impala convertible that has been converted into what is now considered the “world’s fastest donk.” The car is slammed with a turbo that’s said to have come from a garbage truck – but that doesn’t take away from its potency.

Therefore, the fantastic car has around 1,500 horses on offer, giving it the ultimate speed advantage in the world of dunks. However, with massive rear wheels like this Chevy, traction became a big issue when racing the Hoonicorn. Thomas and his fortune were repeatedly crushed.


4 Fully prepared 1966 Chevy Nova SS Drag Car

Because the Hoonicorn has remained undefeated for so long, a certain 1966 Chevy Nova SS owned by Chris P of Aint Skeerd Racing has a profile that makes him a worthy contender to the Hoonicorn.

The car has a big V8 block with an output of 1,100 hp, massive radials at the rear and a striped interior with a roll cage. So Hoonigan challenged Chris to a race with Hoonicorn. Apparently Chris really was “Aint Skeerd” when he got the first race. However, Hoonicorn decisively won the next two.

3 Rob Dahm’s 4-rotor RX-7

Several sick cars have been humiliated by Hoonicorn, but this time it was pitted against a sick car it could actually beat in a race. It’s YouTuber Rob Dahm’s four-rotor, all-wheel-drive Mazda RX-7. Before the duel, Dahm had spent about five years assembling the car for his YouTube channel.

Dahm reportedly spent well over $175,000 building his RX-7, which comfortably produces more than 1,240 horses of raw mechanical power. Unfortunately for Dahm, his RX-7 failed on the Hoonicorn, nearly tearing himself to pieces in the process at high speed.

In the world of sick cars, arguably it couldn’t get sicker than this 1949 Ford F1 pick-truck, fitted with a compound turbo-diesel engine for a claimed power of 1,200 horses. Before racing the Hoonicorn, the vintage Ford F1, also known as the “Old Smokey F1,” had just set the world record for a diesel-powered vehicle at the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb with a time of 11:24.065.

Nonetheless, none of that mattered against the Hoonicorn, as the fiery Mustang predictably crushed Old Smokey in a straight-line speed contest.

1 McLaren Senna

The Senna is one of McLaren’s most powerful racing cars. It is a limited edition mid-engined sports car built in honor and tribute to Brazilian Formula 1 driver Ayrton Senna. In particular, the amazing sports car was developed to deliver faster lap times, hence it features a lightweight design with appropriate aerodynamic elements.

In addition, its 789 hp twin-turbo V8 accelerates from a standing start to 100 km/h in just 2.8 seconds. At the race, the Senna got off to an impressive start, but at about 20 feet, Hoonicorn outpaced her.
