Ken Block is at it again with his hype machine, this time as he unveils the second-generation of his super-powered Mustang, the “Hoonicorn”.
We first saw the original Hoonicorn in Block’s Gymkhana Seven as it ripped through Los Angeles – and presumably tore up many, many tyres. Back then, the car was an 845hp Mustang that was perfectly capable of putting up with Block’s harsh drifts and eye-watering stunts.
