Undefeated Mustang Hoonicorn Takes On Ford GT Carbon Edition: Video

Sponsored

In recent weeks, we’ve seen Ken Block‘s mighty Ford Mustang Hoonicorn drag race everything from a donk to a trophy truck to an RX-7 race car, and yet, it remains undefeated. So the crew at Hoonigans continues to throw just about everything they can at the all-wheel-drive, twin-turbo, 1,400 horsepower menace on wheels. This time around, it’s a pretty pricey and rather gorgeous 2019 Ford GT Carbon Edition.

In terms of power, it would certainly seem that the Ford GT Carbon Edition is at a major disadvantage right off the bat. Not that it’s a slouch, but the GT’s 3.5L EcoBoost V6 puts out a “mere” 650 horsepower and 550 pound-feet of torque. And while it typically enjoys a weight advantage over most foes, that’s certainly not the case with the gutted Hoonicorn.

What the GT does have going for it is modern technology, at least. So perhaps it’ll get off the line a little quicker than the Hoonicorn, or perhaps shift a little quicker? Well, maybe not, since the Mustang is equipped with a six-speed sequential transmission and all-wheel-drive. Race one is pretty much a massacre off the line, as the Hoonicorn dusts the GT and puts several car lengths on it in a mere second or two.

However, the GT does gain a bit on the Hoonicorn by the time it crosses the finish line, so the crew decides to make things a little fairer and try a roll race next. This time around, the GT hangs on for a second before Block’s monstrous Mustang leaves it in the dust, anyway. So for the final attempt, Block goes from a dig while the GT starts with a 40 roll, just for fun.

This makes no difference either, and the Hoonicorn still wins by three car lengths, which is downright crazy when we think about it. Not that we ever expected the GT to win any of these races, but it just continues to demonstrate how insanely quick Ken Block’s Mustang really is.

Brett's lost track of all the Fords he's owned over the years and how much he's spent modifying them, but his current money pits include an S550 Mustang and 13th gen F-150.

    Sooner or later as the more single purpose a competitor the Hoonicorn faces, eventually it too will fall. It’ll be curious to see what will take. A top fuel dragster for example?

    A very impressive run so far for sure! Keep it going!

    The question is what did it cost to build the Hoonicorn Mustang? What is it worth??

    How about putting the Hoonicorn up against another 1400hp monster, the 1400hp Mustang Mach-E? Old school horsepower against new school horsepower.
