Ken Block Reveals 845-hp All-Wheel Drive Ford Mustang

First shown at the 2014 SEMA show, the Mustang is a collaborative effort between Block, Hoonigan and RTR.

Ken Block unveiled a 845-horsepower all-wheel drive 1965 Ford Mustang which will be used for his new Gymkhana 7 video.

First shown yesterday at Ford's SEMA booth, the Mustang is a collaborative effort between Block, Hoonigan and RTR. RTR is fellow Ford and Monster Energy athlete Vaughn Gittin Jr's automotive tuning brand.

Built at ASD Motorsports in Charlotte, North Carolina, over the course of two years, the car is based upon a 1965 Ford Mustang notchback - the iconic pony car, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. The car was heavily modified by RTR and ASD Motorsports to feature a 410 cubic inch Roush Yates V8, with 845 hp, mated to a one-off Sadev all-wheel drive system.

The 1965 Mustang also features custom ASD Motorsports-designed suspension, a full tubular chassis, roll cage, door bars, three-piece 18-inch wheels and custom Pirelli Trofeo R tires in a "custom Ken Block compound".

The styling for the build harnesses a mix of influences and inspirations that include the current crop of WRC cars, DTM cars and even toy cars from Block's youth.

"I'm stoked to be able to publicly unveil this car for the first time at SEMA," says the always entertaining Block. "This is a project I've been working on for two years, so to see it fully come to fruition and be able to drive it for Gymkhana 7 was absolutely amazing."

"I also knew that working with Vaughn [Gittin Jr.] and his RTR team was the right choice for this project since Mustang's are their world, but they really went above and beyond on this car. The attention to detail with the fabrication and bodywork blows my mind. This is hands-down the best Gymkhana car I've had yet."

It is not yet known when the latest installment of Gymkhana will arrive.
