The HOONITRUCK has garnered over 75 million YouTube views, appearing in Gymkhana TEN, which captured it terrorizing a stretch of Route 66 then drifting around an elaborate array of rusty Edsels, and Climbkhana TWO, where Block drove it up China’s Tianmen Mountain highway, the seller said.
The HOONITRUCK was custom-built by Detroit Speed in Mooresville, North Carolina with overall design and styling dictated by Ken Block and his team at Hoonigan.
Under the hood of the 1977 F-150 sits a prototype 3.5-liter Ford Performance/Roush Yates EcoBoost V6 engine lifted directly from the Ford GT Le Mans program, the same engine type from the Ford GT that made headlines at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Atop the engine sits an aluminum intake manifold 3D-printed by Ford Performance as a one-off piece for the HOONITRUCK. At the time, the intake was the largest 3D-printed car part in the world. The Le Mans engine puts out a mind-boggling 914 horsepower with 702 ft.-lb. of torque through a Sadev 6-speed all wheel-drive gearbox.
“We are extremely excited to continue our momentum after successfully selling two cars from Ken’s collection, his 1986 Ford RS200 and his Ex-Gymkhana Ford Fiesta ‘RX43.’” states LBI Limited’s Partner and Specialist, Keith Koscak.
