Favorite YouTube Build – Ford Hoonitruck

For my favorite youtube build, I chose the Ford Hoonitruck. As a automobile freak, I follow a lot of auto channels and blogs. I was always fascinated by trucks, but nothing caught my eye like the Hoonitruck did due to it’s unique history and build. It is a combination of rich automobile heritage and modern age technology. This was built by Detroit Speed Inc. on Ken Block’s demand. This beautiful work of art was hand built, based on a 1977 Ford F-150, owned by Ken Block’s father. It is powered by a custom-tuned Ford Performance 3.5L V6 engine pumping out a massive 914hp at 7500 rpm along with  702 ft-lbs at 6450 rpm. The power is transferred to all the four wheels via a Sadev 6-speed sequential automatic gearbox. This build amazes me due to the uniqueness of the custom made parts and the design process it follows. They took the original design and developed it further into an amazing body.

    Sarthak,

    I think its awesome that you put this on here because I love the hoonigan mustang that they took to the streets of LA and ran through a bunch of tires. I actually haven’t seen the truck so this is awesome I will go look into it.

    Hello Sarthak,

    This is a really cool time-lapse video of Ken Block’s truck! That guy drives incredible. I’ve seen a few of his drift videos and it is unbelievable what that guy can do with a car/truck. I like this video because it shows how they start with bare bones and build it up entirely. Good choice!
