Ken Block Cooks Up A ‘Methmallow’ With The Hoonicorn V2 Mustang: Video

Years ago, at a 24 Hours of Lemons race, I met a man from suburban Chicago who originated the Carbeque: a frequent Lemons contender made from a $400 1989 Saab 900 that would grill ribs over the hot exhaust manifold as it raced around the track. “Surely,” I thought, “this is the only car in the world that can make food in the course of doing its usual thing.”

It turns out I was wrong; Hoonigan just put out a video this week wherein rallycross driver and celebrity Ken Block cooks a marshmallow over the flames spat out by his Hoonicorn V2’s massive Garrett turbochargers. Granted, it’s perhaps best to try and consume as little gasoline – or in this case, methanol – as humanly possible on account of its toxicity. We don’t recommend trying this at home.

Ken Block’s new, 1,400-horsepower Hoonicorn V2 Mustang was officially unveiled Wednesday. It was created for an undisclosed future project with Ken Block sponsor Toyo Tires, building upon the monumental performance of the original AWD Hoonicorn Mustang with methanol fueling and twin turbochargers.
