Earlier this year Hoonigan Racing issued a press release formally declaring the end of Ken Block’s ten year tenure with Ford Performance’s crazy lineup of rally and drift machines. According to the official Hoonigan Racing website, Block is planning new driving pursuits such as stretching his legs in a safari-spec Porsche 911, trying his hand at the Baja 1000, and a new Gymkhana stunt. This summer, Block has rejoined the ranks of Subaru’s World Rallycross team, driving his own new custom STI. Ken Block’s new ambitious driving pursuits will warrant the need for space in his garage, and his infamous 1977 Ford F-150 Hoonitruck is now openly for sale at LBI Limited.
The Hoonitruck Is A Forty Year Old F-150 For A Million Dollars
The 1977 F-150 Hoonitruck is one of a kind. Powered by a Ford GT Le Mans prototype 3.5L twin-turbo V6 EcoBoost engine, Ken Block’s Hoonitruck makes an incredible 914 horsepower and 702 foot pounds of torque. It’s currently being offered for sale by LBI Limited, an automotive brokerage firm that has also sold some of Ken Block’s other Hoonigan cars like his 2011 Ford Fiesta ST RX43 and 1986 Ford RS 200. Considering the notoriety of the truck and the prototype Le Mans engine under the hood (plus the spare one that comes with it), the $1,100,000 price tag seems pretty reasonable.
While We Wait…
The Ken Block’s Hoonitruck was featured in both Climbkhana Two & Gymkhana Ten. The internet sensation videos have garnered tens of millions of views thanks to Ken Block’s extreme driving skills. If you haven’t seen these absolutely absurd videos, you should watch them as soon as possible. Just because Block is no longer driving Ford drift machines doesn’t mean that the Gymkhana driving feats aren’t going anywhere.
Hoonigan’s official statement says that while the new chapter of the Gymkhana franchise is a secret for now, “…a new manufacturer partnership…will be pushing the levels of film and automotive technology in ways we have never done before.” As always, we will be anxiously waiting to drool over whatever he does next.
