Ken Block’s Climbkhana

Sep 25, 2017

In a true battle of man vs. mountain, Ken Block took to the hellish Pike’s Peak hill climb in a souped-up Hoonicorn to prove that once again he’s a driver to be reckoned with. From drifting around hairpin turns to skating along the road’s razor-sharp edges, Block exercises controlled precision unlike anything we’ve seen before.

For the latest Gymkhana journey, Block decided upon a 1965 Ford Mustang Hoonicorn RTR V2 featuring a twin turbo methanol-fueled 1,400 horsepower engine to make the 14,000-foot climb. Additionally, the ride was outfitted with Toyo Proxes R888R tires for the job as well. It’s here that, along with Block of course, that the Toyo tires become the star of the show – taking a beating yet surviving the iconic incline Ken Block style. Regardless of the takeaway, Climbkhana is certainly a fine example of professional driving and is worth watching for the production value and skill involved here if nothing else.
