Watch “Climbkhana,” Epic Video of Ken Block’s 1400-HP Mustang Attacking Pikes Peak ""
Posted on: September 25, 2017

It’s finally here. Almost a year after being announced, Climbkhana, Ken Block’s latest, craziest video, is finally ready for our consumption. In it, Block takes his 1400-hp twin-turbo all-wheel-drive Ford Mustang—the same one featured in Gymkhana 7—up America’s most famous and dangerous mountain road.

This video was scary for Block to make. First, he revealed that the Mustang was “pretty terrifying” when he first drove it on a closed course. Then we saw footage of him nearly losing it high up on the mountain. The results were clearly worth it, though—this is one of the best, most exciting, and terrifying drift videos we’ve ever seen.

Block’s Mustang is particularly interesting. Dubbed Hoonicorn 2, it was given twin turbos and a methanol injection system to better cope with the thin high-altitude air. It’s hardly a Mustang at all, really—just a tube-frame monster with some Mustang bodywork stuck to it. But we love it,  and, clearly, so does Block.

Watch for yourself as Block dominates America’s gnarliest hill-climb.
