Our good friend Ken Block and partners at Hoonigan revealed something we have been waiting for… The twin turbo Hoonicorn V2 and a new trailer to the new Gymkhana! As you can see in the photo’s below Hoonigan and Ken Block did not go with a subtle look with the twin turbos popping out the hood this monster is ready to eat some massive amounts of air. This ridiculously modified Mustang has a reflective custom wrap on it that will make your eyes think they are looking at something else.
Ken Block and Hoonigan Racing went live on facebook to originally unveil the car and then came out with the trailer to tease us all for the next Gymkhana. Here are some of Ken Blocks posts about the car and filming of the new Gymkhana.
“So rad to work with this guy, Mr. Jeff Zwart (@Zwart) on Climbkhana Pikes Peak! Jeff is co-directing on this project along with Hoonigan Media Machine’s @BrianScotto for a few reasons. He knows the mountain very, very well: he’s competed at the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb over 15 times, with 3 records and 8 class wins under his belt! And that’s not even his day job, which is directing commercials for brands all around the world for decades. Very stoked to see the combo of his knowledge along with Mr. Scotto’s experience in directing and creative directing Gymkhana videos. Hit the link in my profile to see the trailer for the video, launching summer 2017!”
Face to face with #HoonicornV2, yours truly, and those two boost-producing snails. Posted up at around 10,000 feet at Pikes Peak, pre-tire slaying. Hit the link in my profile to see it in action.
“Wrangling this 1400hp smoke machine around one of the most dangerous hillclimb roads in the world = sketchy! But also incredibly fun. Hit the link in my profile to check out the Climbkhana Pikes Peak teaser trailer here if you haven’t yet. Or even if you have. I can’t stop watching it.”
“HoonicornV2 at the start of the legendary Pikes Peak Hill Climb for #Climbkhana, presented @ToyoTires. Hit the link in my profile for a taste of the glorious loud noises this thing makes on its way up to the 14,000 foot summit.”
“Gymkhana + hill climb = CLIMBKHANA. The next generation of the Gymkhana series. Coming summer 2017, presented by @ToyoTires.
“My tire of choice for Climbkhana Pikes Peak (and Gymkhana NINE) that I couldn’t show you until now: the @ToyoTires R888R, now available here in the USA! Love how aggressive this tread looks… having 295-wide tires at all four corners helps with that look. Ha. Hit the link in my profile for the Climbkhana Pikes Peak trailer, to see them get turned into smoke – very, very quickly.”
Enjoy the trailer for the next Gymkhana below!
