A 1,400-horsepower Mustang drifts up the side of a mountain.
Last Year Ken Block announced he is sick of the 845HP car and wanted to do more, therefore the release of the 1400HP Mustang .
We all know the Gymkhana video series that comes our every once in a while. This time, instead of drifting his way through a city or abandoned factory, he’s upped his game to a new level. Ken Block took his Ford Mustang up to the top of Pikes Peak in Colorado. Yes, that Pikes Peak, the one that runs up the side of a mountain, much of it above the tree line, with few guardrails and thousand-foot drops off the side.
You will recognize Block’s 1965 Ford Mustang Hoonicorn RTR from few years ago when he released his Gymkhana Seven video. Back then, his Mustang was powered by a “nonsensical” 845hp (630kW) naturally aspirated 6.7L V8. But last year, the Hoonicorn got an upgrade. Now it sports a pair of turbochargers too large to be contained by the hood, and it uses methanol as a fuel. The result is 1,400hp (1044kW)—presumably at sea level, anyway.
