Ken Blocks Hoonicorn is an animal. Although built to go sideways and pull off spectacular tire-melting donuts, the 1,400-horsepower, four-wheel-drive 1965 Mustang is capable of defeating pretty much everything in a straight line, including a Mclaren Senna, Rob Dahm’s four-rotor RX-7 , and even a fully assembled tractor. It is no surprise then to see a Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 need a huge handicap to get a win against the modified sibling.
The GT500, our Performance Car of the Year for 2021, is no slouch. Thanks to a 760 horsepower V-8 compressor and a fast-shifting dual-clutch gearbox, it is able to put some extremely fast times on the strip ̵
In a straight up towards Hoonicorn, it lies in the dust, gaping at several car lengths when it reaches the finish line. It’s a similar story when the two cars start from a roll. The GT500 is only capable of firing the 1400 horsepower missile on wheels when it gets a generous rolling start, and Block starts from an excavation.
Is there a production car out there that can defeat Hoonicorn in a drag race? Let us know if you can think of one in the comments below.
