You’re about to see Ken Block tackle China’s most dangerous road on Tianmen Mountain in Climbkhana 2, behind the wheel of his 1977 Ford F-150, which is nicknamed the ‘Hoonitruck.’ It may look like a typical slammed truck at first, but it’s powered by a custom-tuned Ford Performance V6 EcoBoost engine generating 914bhp and 702 ft-lb of torque, mated to a Sadev 6-speed gearbox. Read more for the incredible 9-minute video and additional information.
For those who just want to visit this road, you’ll be happy to know that a cablecar was constructed back in 2005 from nearby Zhangjiajie railway station to the top of the mountain. The Tianmen Mountain Cableway is actually claimed to be the “longest passenger cableway of high mountains in the world”, with 98 cars and a total length of 24,459-feet and an ascent of 4,196-feet. Visitors can walk on miles of paths built along the cliff face at the top of the mountain, including sections with glass floors. There’s also a 7-mile road with 99 turns that also reaches the top of the mountain and takes visitors to Tianmen cave.
