      It must be amazing to have the resources to build the crazy George Miller inspired vehicle ideas we think of. Those ideas that creep up while surfing Bring A Trailer, or Craigslist, window shopping for dream cars. Like what would happen if you installed a rear mounted engine in a boat-tail ’71 Buick Riviera? Or, turning a Ford Crown Vic into a Porsche killer track day speed-yacht (A real idea a friend of mine has).

      Ken Block surprised us all when he showed the world his Hooicorn Mustang in 2016. This insane Mustang will now have the perfect complementary tow-vehicle with the latest Hooigan hot-rod that debuted last week. A 1977 F-150 with a Ford GT Twin-turbo V6 that’ll rotate all four wheels using 914hp and 702 lb-ft of torque -The Hoonitruck!

      Detroit Speed out in Mooresville, North Carolina, handled the bodywork, fabrication and chassis on the Hoonitruck. The mad engineers at Hoonigan took charge of design and styling of Uncle Jesse’ millennial pickup truck. Sending all that power to the truck’s wheels will be a Sadev six-speed transmission similar to the Ford Hoonicorn Mustang. The truck is equipped with a tow hitch and Ford backup camera so there is some versatility to this beast besides being a vehicular Tasmanian devil.

      The latest chapter in Ken Block’s Gymkhana video series, “Gymkhana 10” is set to debut on Amazon Prime December 7th, and stream on the Hoonigan YouTube Channel on the 17th (Just in time for the holidays.) The Ford Hoonitruck is said to be one of the vehicles to appear in this new film. It’ll be quite the scene watching this slammed monstered truck melt tires through tight turns.

      • I agree, his videos look cool but it’s not like he does all of it in one take. It’s about as believable as that dude perfect Crap. Ken Block is all style, and I’m not denying he has serious skills, there just not practical on the rally stage, which is why he does that un-timed gymkhana. Compare how he drifts which looks cool in an edited video to Colin McRae, who did it because it was fastest to get him through a corner.

      • I prefer the idea of a rear-engined Riviera, actually. Twin-engine of course; otherwise that bonnet is even more unjustified.
