Ken Block’s 1977 Ford F-150 ‘Hoonitruck’

Ken Block and the folks at Hoonigan are no strangers to absurdly powerful custom vehicle builds. So when it came time to build one for the upcoming Gymkhana 10, they knew this one had to be special. As such, Block and his team chose to modify a 1977 Ford F-150, which they have dubbed the ‘Hoonitruck.’

Built as an homage to Block’s late father — he owned a similar pickup truck from the same era, which was actually the vehicle in which Ken Block learned to drive — this might actually be the wildest vehicle Hoonigan has ever made. For starters, it’s powered by a custom-tuned Ford Performance V6 EcoBoost engine (one they snagged from Ford Racing’s GT Le Mans development program). That gives this bad boy a monstrous 914bhp and 702 ft-lb of torque, making it ideal for Gymkhana, both in regards to speed and drift-ability. But that’s not all; the Hoonitruck also boasts a special Sadev 6-speed gearbox (similar to the one found in the Hoonicorn before it), as well as a heavily-modified chassis and bodywork. Needless to say, we’re itching to see what this beast can do.
