Ken Block’s 1,400-HP Vintage Porsche 911 Pikes Peak Racer is Ridiculously Awesome

The 1,400-HP classic Porsche 911 is the most extreme Hoonigan build yet, and Ken Block will drive it at this year’s Pikes Peak event

Hoonigan has built some insane stuff, but the most extreme builds have to be the ones done with Ken Block. You are probably familiar with the 1965 Ford Mustang Hoonicorn, and the more recent Audi S1 Hoonitron, which is an obvious throwback to the original S1 Quattro from the 1980s. While the latter was designed and built in Ingolstadt, Hoonigan has decided to one-up Ken’s current ride, by building an unholy Pikes Peak creation based on a 1970s Porsche 911.

This will be the third electric car in Porsche’s lineup, next to the Taycan and the upcoming Macan EV.

A first glimpse at what the electric sports car could look like was offered back in 2021 when Porsche unveiled the Mission R Concept at the 2021 IAA Mobility show.

The Lamborghini Essenza SCV12 will let you experience the full thrill of driving a race car, but without the actual racing

The Lamborghini Essenza SCV12 is one of the craziest spin-offs of the now-discontinued Lamborghini Aventador. While the standard lineup of the Raging Bull is exciting enough for most, those craving the genuine, visceral feel of a proper race car can opt for the radical Essenza SCV12. But, there lies the problem. The Essenza is a track-only race car, but it has no racing series to compete in.

Hoonigan drag races two very different "Beemers"; Both are out of their element on a drag strip

Hoonigan’s “This vs That” has given us some of the most epic drag race battle, we have ever seen. If a build is crazy fast and weird, it’s bound to show up on their channel, and this time, we have two very different BMWs squaring off against each other. The first bonkers machine is a BMW M2 Formula Drift car while the second one is a BMW E36, built specifically for Time Attack. Neither of the cars is meant to race on a drag strip, so it should be very interesting.
