Can Ken Block’s Hoonicorn Take Down a Ford GT Carbon Series?
When it comes to beefed-up Mustangs, no pony compares to Ken Block’s Hoonicorn. Sure, he uses the heavily modified 1965 Mustang for a lot of drifting, but it’s insanely powerful and, as a result, insanely fast too. How fast? Well, it can put a Ford GT Carbon Edition supercar to shame.
If you were to run a BMW M2 against a Shelby GT350, which do you think would win? Well, throttle house decided to do just that and put them through the paces on the track and in a drag race to see which one was actually better. In one corner, the BMW M2 is capable of putting out 365 horsepower and a sprint to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds, thanks to a 3.0-liter inline-six. In the other corner, we have the Ford Shelby Mustang GT350 that pumps out 526 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque from a 5.2-liter V-8. On paper, the Mustang should kill the M2 all day long running a cylinder down. But, it’s not always so cut and dry as you’ll see in the video below. Go ahead and click play, then sit back and enjoy the action!
You Have to Love Watching Ken Block Hoon The All-Electric Ford Fiesta ERX
Ken Block needs no introduction by now. The inventor of Gymkhana has gathered a huge fan base on- and off-line, and for good reason: he’s been sitting behind the wheel in cool rides since forever. Speaking of those, this time around, Mr. Block gets to shakedown the living daylight out of the all-electric Ford Fiesta ERX that he actually raced over the last weekend in FIA’s World Rallycross Project E race series. And as usual, some tire slaying ensued.
2021 Ford GT Heritage Edition
Ford is once again reminding its customers that buying a GT is the closest thing to getting your hands on a piece of motorsport history thanks to a new special edition. It’s called the Heritage Edition - of course it is - and it’s a nod back to Ford’s 1966 Daytona 24 Hour Continental race win.
Ken Miles’ Mustang Shelby GT350R Becomes The Most Expensive Mustang Ever Sold At Auction
A 1965 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R has become the most expensive Mustang ever sold at an auction setting. The record-breaking Shelby GT350R sold for a whopping $3.85 million, eclipsing the previous record-holder, the 1968 Mustang GT hero car that was driven by Steve McQueen in the movie Bullitt. No less than Ken Miles, the British racer who was prominently featured as one of the main characters in the movie, Ford v. Ferrari, drove the specific Shelby GT350R, nicknamed the “Flying Mustang.” The $3.85 million sale price now ascends to the top of the ladder as the single most expensive Mustang to ever sell at auction. It’s going to take a special Mustang to unseat the new record-holder.
Building the Mustang Mach-E 1400 Was More About Learning Than Being Cool
Ever since Ford introduced the Mustang Cobra Jet 1400 all-electric Mustang, which was essentially a potent electric drag car, we’ve been itching for a performance-oriented Mustang EV to be born. We got as close as the Mustang Mach-E which is, as far as I’m concerned, not a Mustang, but that has been the extent of it. Then, almost out of nowhere, Ford threw us a bone in the Mustang Mach-E 1400. It’s still not a proper Mustang, but it features 1400 horsepower just like the Cobra Jet 1400, and it’s one mean electric machine. Despite its ability to eat tires like I eat cookies, the purpose of the Mach-E 1400 was to help Ford learn while showcasing what the company is capable of.
With 1,400 Horsepower, The Ford Mustang Mach-E 1400 Is Useless But Awesome
Ford is on a hot streak lately and it seems like nothing can go wrong for the company. Running high on the Bronco’s launch success, the Blue Oval has carried over the momentum to its electric steed – the Mustang Mach-E – by unveiling a performance prototype of its EV. This Mustang churns out a massive 1,400 horses and features seven motors in total! How about that!
Here’s What a Pro Racer Thinks of the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500
This 2003-2004 SVT Cobra Terminator Is the Car You Probably Forgot About
The SVT Cobra Terminator was the end result of SVT boss John Coletti’s impression that the at-that-time new Mustang wasn’t quite up to the task performance-wise. So the 2002 Cobra R&D was sent from Team Mustang to Team SVT, and what came out, well, you know pretty darn well what came out.
Top 10 Fastest Used Cars Under $20K
With the prices of cars increasing, a $20,000 used sports car has become harder to obtain these days.

It takes three weeks to build the Ford GT Liquid Carbon
Let’s face it. The 2020 Chicago Auto Show was a dud. There’s no hiding from the fact that the format needs changing because utter dullness won’t cut it anymore. Even so, some debuts managed to shine through all that murky water.
The Ford GT Liquid Carbon edition was one of them. Ford’s supercar made a surprise appearance in Chicago, packing 13 more horsepower, better cooling, and a naked-carbon-fiber guise that ups the ante on the GT’s appeal. Turns out, though, that flaunting that exposed carbon fiber also triples the Ford GT’s build time.
2020 Ford GT Liquid Carbon Edition
Big news from FoMoCo on its supercar. It’s still powered by the same 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V-6, but for the 2020 model year, power goes up from 647 horsepower to 660 horsepower. Torque stays unchanged (550 pound-feet), but it’s now available within a broader band.
