There’s no denying that Ken Block’s 1,400 horsepower, all-wheel-drive Ford Mustang Hoonicorn is incredibly fast. Even though it was designed to drift and not as a dedicated drag racer, it’s pretty darn quick too. In fact, just last week, we saw it demolish a McLaren Senna in a drag race. Now, the Ford Mustang Hoonicorn is lining up against the world’s fastest “donk” in its latest quest to outrun everything on earth.
Donks, in case anyone isn’t aware, are generally big American coupes or sedans that are lifted and fitted with ridiculously large wheels and tires. Generally, donks prioritize their outrageous style over speed, but that isn’t the case with this 1971 Chevrolet Caprice. In fact, it’s packing a Corvette Z06 powerplant with a giant turbo and tons of nitrous to help it produce a whopping 1,500 horsepower.
Even though it has a slight horsepower advantage, it’s pretty easy to predict the winner of this little drag race. The Ford Mustang Hoonicorn is lighter and enjoys the traction benefits that all-wheel-drive provides, while the Caprice is a massive and heavy piece of iron with equally massive and heavy wheels and tires.
On the first run, the Caprice gets the jump but just smokes its tires as the Hoonicorn dead hooks and blows right past it on the way to sweet victory. On the second run, the heavy Chevy manages to find traction, but still gets gapped in a major way. The donk owner has bigger aspirations for his car, but this is exactly what a 2,000-pound weight advantage will do, with a little extra traction mixed in.
We imagine Ken Block and his crew will continue lining up against all comers as they try to outrun everything on the planet in the Hoonicorn, and we can’t wait to see what sort of crazy opponent they find next.

Talk about bringing a knife to a gun fight!! LOL
I usually love anything done to a car, but this Donk thing loses me on every level. To each their own I guess.
You are wrong on your definition of a donk a donk is a 1971-1976 Chevrolet Caprice or Impala.
Those are the models that started the donk movement, but it has since expanded to include far more than just those. A simple Google search will shed some light on that.
2 days in a row I had a BaDonk y Donk pass me as my light went from red to green. The first day I called it a draw because while I toyed with him for a 1/2 mile or so.
The second day – in fog so thick you couldn’t see your hood ornament rather yet the 100’s of deer that feed along tbis road….here’s the punch line @100 MPH MY GMC Savanna 3500 shunts.
Yeah he won & since today’s thanksgiving 1 CAN ONLY HOPE THE B-DONEY DONK IS HAVING VENICINE!
