The legendary Hoonitruck can be yours to own, tame, and hoon
This thing is intimidating to even look at
This is real life. Your eyes are not deceiving you. Ken Block's Hoonitruck is up for sale on LBI Limited for the healthy sum of $1.1 million. I know this because I wrote the listing description.
You might remember LBI Limited from a few months ago when they listed three of Ken's cars for sale as part of the Ken Block Collection: his 2013 Ford Fiesta ST RX43, 2011 Ford Fiesta GYM3, and 1986 Ford RS200. The RS200 and RX43 already sold, with GYM3 being the only leftover car from that collection. If you've got the pocket change, this might be your last chance to cop that Fiesta.
The Hoonitruck is an entirely different beast though. It was created for Gymkhana TEN where Ken drifted it around a classic Americana background on a stretch of Route 66. It was also the star of Climbkhana TWO where it drifted up China’s 5000-foot high Tianmen Mountain highway. Across those two videos, it racked up almost 60 million views. Oh that Ken Block, what a daredevil! Powering the hooning is a custom-tuned, 3.5 liter, twin-turbocharged, Ford Performance/Roush Yates EcoBoost V6 engine with a billet-aluminum block lifted directly out of the Ford Racing Ford GT Le Mans development program. Take note that this is AN ACTUAL prototype engine that Ford created for their legendary LeMans program. It gets better though. The aluminum intake manifold was 3D printed by Ford Performance as a one-off piece specifically for the Hoonitruck.
How fast does it go? Glad you asked. Even with "only" six cylinders, the Hoonitruck puts out an eyeball-splattering 914hp at 7,400 rpm with 702 ft·lb of torque through a Sadev 6-speed all wheel-drive gearbox. The whole project reportedly cost over $1.5 million and was built by Detroit Speed in Mooresville, NC.
If the word monster had an automotive-exclusive definition, the Hoonitruck would be the image that appears in the dictionary. It's mean, it's loud, and it requires a special kind of talent to tame those 900+ horses. Can you handle it? Better yet, can your insurance policy handle it? Then open up your wallet and warn your neighbors. Your lives will never be the same again with the Hoonitruck in your driveway.
