    Ken Block and Ford Motor Company’s exclusive partnership has brought in some real hardware over the past decade in rally and rallycross. 19 race wins plus 17 other podium finishes, 2 X Games medals, well over a billion video views across Block’s social media platforms, and the first ever World Rally Championship points scored for the brand by an American driver. As of January 2021, that exclusivity comes to an end, with Block becoming a free agent. And that means his options behind the wheel are now wide open.
    “Working with Ford over the past decade has been awesome.” says Ken Block. “From racing all over the world, to accumulating a half billion views from Gymkhana THREE to Gymkhana TEN, to creating the Emmy nominated series The Gymkhana Files for Amazon Prime - along with building a fleet of Fords including the iconic AWD Mustang Hoonicorn and F-150 Hoonitruck - it’s been a great partnership. It’s simply been a dream come true to work with the company that built the truck that my Dad drove when I was a teenager. I’m super appreciative to Ford for the support over the years, but I am also looking forward to what an unrestricted 2021 holds, and the ability to spread my wings a bit and play with a lot other toys.
    2020 was a big year for Block and his Ford vehicles. He took the overall win at Rally Barbados in a WRC2 Ford Fiesta, won his class (and 3rd overall) at Rally Legend in San Marino in his Ford Escort Cossie V2, and also won the first ever Projekt E race of the FIA World RallyCross Championship in Holjes, Sweden, in a Ford Fiesta. Along with winning races, Block and Hoonigan launched the all-new viral video series,- Hoonicorn Vs The World. Spanning 11 episodes, the series features Ken racing his 1965 Ford Mustang RTR Hoonicorn against a variety of wild vehicles including a McLaren Senna and the World’s Fastest Donk. The series has been viewed over 34 million times since its launch in late November.
    What does the next chapter have in store? Ken Block and Hoonigan Racing Division will be announcing new partnerships very soon. In the meantime, enjoy this video of Ken’s favorite Ford - the 1,400 horsepower AWD Mustang Hoonicorn V2 - get taken on its “last ride”.

      1. Rock girl

        Why?

    12. Papa Smith

      Would like to see a Hoon vehicle running on efuels in the future, no electric nonsense. We also need efuels in the UK too, vote for them here petition.parliament.uk/petitions/563118

    13. Papa Smith

      Is Ken Block leaving Ford because of the new Ford Mustang Mach E bollocks? He only wants to drive proper cars I assume.

    14. Jordan Evans

      Can I have it please

    15. JTSTRANGO

      so can i have it now or what?

    16. YOUR RAGNAROK

      I would love to have a tee shirt with dual concentric circular rings inside the top of the rings "KEN BLOCK" inside the bottom of the rings "HOONIGAN" and in the middle of the inner circle "DMG" for Drift Master General

    22. Carson Watson

      Everyone in the comments are so sad (well I am too😭) but anyway, it's not like he's gonna crush the cars guys. They will still be around. The big question is what's going to happen moving forward. I'm curious if itll be another American company of if he'll go jdm. We will just have to wait and see

    23. Finn199 _

      I'm not crying, you're crying.

    24. Mike Scarborough

      You are an artist of adrenaline and I love it ,keep up the good job.

    25. TheReinoPaasonen

      Why?

    26. mama mia -

      What did the red button do?

    27. Tom Smock

      Sorry.... but when did tire smoke equate to performance. I’m so tired of seeing rubber marks on intersections of community streets. Total disrespect for community property. BTW who’s cleaning that shit up? Then farewell to the sycophants that made and supported this form of entertainment. Give me midgets without wings on dirt any day.... that’s talent at its best.

    28. Vili Virtanen

      you should have rev hoonicorn to the limiter until engine breaks

    29. Jay Kay

      Car is square, no curves, you find curves on road

    30. YeOldeOgre

      Somebody need to take WHATEVER vehicle that is that's beeping out of reverse! Lol my freaking tinnitus is bad enough!

    31. YeOldeOgre

      Why would this be the "last ride" in the 'corn? If I'm not mistaken, Ken/Hoonigan Racing owns it... Not Ford. Am I wrong?

    35. Charles Tam

      Sad to see that.... But it's understandable and inevitable... I wonder if Ken will be able to keep the car(s) so we may see them as a cameo in his garage in the future...

    36. Karel Gierke

      Ford ...... Biiiiiiiig mistake.

    37. Noah Melsom

      I'm trying to find Hoonicorn V2 running at a 1/4 mile track? Any info or links would be appreciated. Thanks.

    61. Ettiene Nel

      Its a real pity that the AWD Mustang Hoonicorn did not compete against the Ferrari FXX. That would have been the best race of the centenary

    62. Julian Mora

      Where can I find one of those monsters hats ?

    63. Chris S

      Yes, the Hoonicorn is an amazing car, what car guy would not love everything about it? Except maybe the hype and PR. You know all of the races were carefully selected. I always wanted to see it go against an Alpha & Omega GT-R. I Think the Hoonicorn would of had its clock cleaned. But that would not of made for good PR. So it never happened.

    64. Aidan Coleman (STUDENT)

      i’m not crying you are:(

    65. gio gr focus

      @Ken block next project? Audi?

    66. Michael Swart

      Where is kyle?

    67. Neg Koray

      Why wouldn't Ford just give him the damned thing?

    68. bowen voowy

      I remember when all this came to light back in 2010. This is genuinely sad to know something that gave me so much joy will no longer be. All the best, Block.

    69. HOANG DINH VIET

      its not a real good bye because we cant know what will happen in the future, who knows thats many years later he will be a racer again?but i cant know the time, we want to come back

    70. Gabe Hodos-Rich

      Think how iconic this will be in the future

    71. Jesse Taylor

      Go with need for speed plz

    72. SHUMI1986

    76. THATSMYNAME

    77. crab lobster

      mea, this guy is on a long list of people that i see as a ''i couldnt win in controlled world so i made my own game up''. struggled to qual for main events is what i remember. youd be in the top 10,000 drivers i rekin...just. that we know of. ha, donk

    78. AZR_Valor

      Noooooo

    79. Les Flynn

      This is an unwelcome surprise. Why end a relationship which brings so much credibility, loyalty and entertainment to a brand. Everyone digs the absolute shit out of any video with Ken Block + Gymkhana + Ford (especially with the Hoonicorn involved.) Those projects are unmatched by anyone. I know it's business. Maybe it was a dispute over $$. Maybe Ford wanted Ken to start doing electric vehicle stuff and Ken told them to stick it. I have no idea. But I'm disappointed. Nothing can match the entertainment value of the Hoonicorn. The visuals, the noise, the AWD and the speed are unmatched by anything which currently exists. I'm disappointed. I watch for future Hoonigan sponsorship deals with my hands over my eyes, occasionally braving a peek through a gap in my fingers.

    80. 10223220

      Nooooo this can't be happening what am I going to do now with my life ,being a mustang owner I love this car I want it👍

    81. Martin Duquette

      I sure hope it’s not a final goodbye for Ken and the Hoonicorn!

    82. Grandroshen

      I’m not crying, it’s just the methanol in my eyes. 😢

    83. Ron Davidson

      Here lies a car that killed all tires.....

    84. Ron Davidson

      End of an era.......

    85. TheFujac

      if anybody asks me to sum up the 20teens in one word i'll have to say 'hoonigan'..... a true icon, piloted by a true modern legend...... thanks for all the laughs you nutters!! edit.....i can't begin to imagine what comes next!!

    86. The man behind the slaughter

      This better be fake 😢

    87. pere hortes

      The disgusted router commercially flash because approval tinctorially increase but a scandalous doctor. berserk, nauseating cry

    94. Damien Theo

      what happens to the car now?

    95. Kem Chiag

      He sounds like that guy that was trash talking Mike Tyson then got destroyed lol what was his name again?

    96. Xavier

      If Ford taking every single sponsor car because it’s over and Ken Block has a lot of em. They should give him this car as a trophy. It’s not fair :((

    97. Sean Macaulay

      Yup I’m not crying either ... 🥺 best car ever

    98. Das Mole

      does this mean a hoonicorn v3???????

    99. Bay BossMAN

      Stop Fucking around Ken and Get Monster Tajima and Sabastian Loeb and Race your lil pony against The Record Breaking Monster Sport SX-4 and The Peugeot 208 T16!!!

    100. otto rocket

      Now that I’ve watched to the end of the video. I really really hope that Ken gets to keep the Hoonicorn. And then whoever he goes to after Ford he does a mythical monster muscle car to truly challenge the hoonicorn. Like an SS Camaro or a Dodge Challenger 😈 Hoonicorn will always be my favorite though
