If you haven't watched Gymkahnna 10 yet, stop what you're doing and get on Amazon Prime Video. The biggest and final Gymkahnna video features 5 different cars from Ken Block's collection ending with the debut of the Hoonitruck during the final Texas segment of the video. As it turns out Ken's hand built F150 from the legendary shop at Detroit Speed is the coolest Gykhanna vehicle yet.

Powered by a 914 horsepower twin-turbo V6 from the Ford GT Lemans racecar, the Hoonitruck is an impressive machine, to say the least. That V6 engine is paired up to trick AWD system that is specifically designed for drifting.

Besides all the performance, the hand-built body of the Honnitruck was designed to take a beating during Gymkhana filming. The truck is literally built to crash and be fixed quickly to keep the shoot going.

Besides all the logistics, the Honnitruck just looks badass. It's so wide that the truck can't even fit on a car carrier with the flare and wide wheels installed. All of these hand-formed body panels require painstaking metal work by the artisans at Detroit Speed.
