Ken Block Hoonicorn Mustang vs NHRA Chevrolet Corvette
Ken Block’s daughter, 14-year-old Lia Block, might be following in her father’s footsteps, as she recently raced the Hoonicorn, a twin-turbocharged V8 1965 Ford Mustang, against a 4000hp NHRA 2012 Chevrolet Corvette V6. That’s right, this National Hot Rod Association dragster is powered by a 8.6L Hemi V8, paired with a 3-speed Lenco transmission that helps it run the 1/8 mile in a mere 3.5-seconds, while topping out at 212 mph.

How much do each of these vehicles weigh? Well, the Mustang tips the scales at 2,998-pounds and the Corvette weighs in at 2,800-pounds. The Hoonicorn is powered by a Ford-sourced twin-turbocharged V8 engine, mated to a SADEV transmission that has been upgraded with paddle shifters that sends power to all four corners.
