Ken Block’s Ford Mustang Hoonigan Hoonicorn is easily one of the wildest pony cars ever created, and even though it was specifically designed to go sideways around corners, it’s also virtually unbeatable in a straight line, too. Block and Ford ended their decade-long relationship back in January of 2021, and the head Hoonigan sold off a host of his Blue Oval rides, including the Hoonitruck, but he has kept the Hoonicorn in his collection, regardless. Now, fans of that particular ride can snag their own radio controlled version, courtesy of the folks at Associated Electronics.
The Ford Mustang Hoonigan Hoonicorn RC car is built on the company’s new Apex2 chassis and features a host of incredible details, including a set of officially licensed American Racing VF503 Wheels, that make it look just like the real thing. It may not have 1,400 horsepower like its full-size counterpart, but the RC racer is plenty fast thanks to its Reedy brushed speed control and three-pole brushed motor, and is also available with a Reedy Compact Balance Charger and a 7.4V 2S LiPo Battery with a T-plug as well.
Underneath, this amazingly detailed creation features an A-arm front and an active rear independent suspension, threaded, oil-filled shocks, a sealed center driveline, metal ring and pinion gears, a 2.5mm thick G10 chassis, injection molded brake calipers and rotors, a 2.4GHz 2-channel radio system, sealed front and rear gear differentials, full metal ball bearings, and adjustable body post height locations.
The Ford Mustang Hoonigan Hoonicorn RC car retails for $395.99 or $459.99 with the aforementioned charger and larger battery, though the latter unit isn’t currently available. Regardless, this new toy looks like a heck of a lot of fun for anyone who’s ever dreamed of living a day in Ken Block’s racing shoes.
