Ken Block unveiled his 1965 Ford Mustang Hoonicorn back in 2016. At launch, the model was powered by a 410-cubic-inch Roush Yates V-8 engine that could deliver 845 horsepower and 720 pound-feet of torque. Over the years, the muscle car suffered a lot of changes, so the current RTR V2 version delivers an amazing 1,400 horsepower and 1,250 pound-feet of torque! So, car fanatic or not, the Hoonicorn is a dream car. Of course, only one can actually enjoy its amazing performance figures, while the rest of us can only dream about it. Or play with this 1:10 scale Hoonicorn RC car offered by Team Associated.

What is the Hoonicorn RC Car?

The RC car was built on the new Apex2 chassis and measures 18 inches in length and 7.87 inches in width. Unlike the real car that features a V-8 engine, the RC car is powered by a 3-pole brushed motor – which of course does not deliver 1,400 horsepower. It will also feature front and rear independent suspension with threaded, oil-filled shocks and active rear toe - features that make it suitable for off-road fun. The active rear suspension allows the amount of toe change to be adjusted through the suspension cycle, increasing, or decreasing rear grip. And, speaking of off-roading, the RC model is also equipped with American Racing VF503 Wheels wrapped in Kill All Tires, full-metal ball bearings, steel drive axles, and adjustable shock mounting locations.

The RC car is all-wheel-drive and features a sealed driveline to keep out debris, oil-filled shocks, and metal ring and pinion gears, the latter of which ensure long-lasting durability. A Reedy SC500X programmable brushed ESC and a 2.4GHz 2-channel radio system make sure you will have plenty of uninterrupted fun.

How much does the Hoonigan RC car cost?

The Hoonicorn RC Car will be offered in two versions: one priced at $579.99 and one at $679.99. The first version offers the motor, receiver, radio, and the Hoonicorn body, while the latter adds only the other accessories you may need, like the charger and battery. Team Associated is also offering a lot of upgrades like a battery charger, extra batteries, motors, suspension bits, and fluids.

It is up to you to decide if this is a lot or not, but keep in mind that Ken Block’s 914-horsepower Hoonitruck was sold for $1.1 million! While the Hoonicorn was not listed for sale just yet, you can only imagine the amount of money someone will pay for it, so having a working mini example wouldn’t be a bad thing.
