[HOONIGAN] Ken Block's Gymkhana Seven: Wild in the Streets of Los Angeles w/ vid

Gymkhana 7 is out and here's the beast... (Full vid is at the bottom)

Ken Block Unveils 800+hp Hoonigan RTR: an Insane Off the Wall AWD Mustang

[Image: gym2-2xv43h3puz97pb7bs1wtts.jpg]

We all know that each and every one of Ken Block’s Gymkhana cars have gone for a wild ride, especially with Block behind the wheel. Each car release gets progressively more badass than the former car. Every time we see the latest edition our greatest inclination is to get behind the wheel and just rip on it.

The next launch in the series of Gymkhana rides is a killer Ford Mustang that will induce more of that same “need to drive it now” feeling. Check out this sick collaborative effort that is the fruit of two years of labor and be sure to read more below from our friends at Hoonigan.

You won’t want to miss any details about the AWD V8 super ‘Stang known as the Hoonicorn, that’s for sure.

I love the car but I found this to be one of the more lackluster of the series. My favorite part was the 4 wheel burnout/launch at the intro.

Dang, beat me to it. I love these Gymkhana videos, but this one seemed a little less creative than the other ones. I did like the part with the lowrider though haha.

I was cracking up with the White Bronco. I can only imagine how bad the traffic was closing the freeway down

Yeah the OJ part had me almost in tears. I wanted Ken to go and drift around the Bronco while it was moving.

I agree with everyone saying the car is outstanding but previous vids was better. These 2 are my favorites...

There was talk on RRAX Forum about trying to setup a race between the Hoonicorn and a fellow Dixie Region SCCA Member's Mustang:

It's made for some pretty interesting conversation so far!
