This isn’t your average Mustang car. It’s not even close to any modified Mustang you’ve ever come across. Ken Block’s 1965 Mustang has recently been revealed at Ford’s stall at SEMA, and is a monster of a car, fitted with an 845HP powerhouse and the looks to match the dominance of this amazing engine.
Built using a notchback 1965 Ford Mustang as base, by ASD motorsports in Charlotte, NC, this wonder took 2 years to complete.
The engine fitted into the Mustang is a huge 6.7-liter 410ci Roush Yates V8, which generates a phenomenal 845HP and 720 lb-ft of Torque. All this amazing power is delivered to all wheels via a six-speed Sadev AWD transmission with a hydraulic handbrake system.
The inspiration for the exterior design came from WRC and DTM cars, and even some toy cars from Ken Block’s childhood, according to him.
The Mustang is also equipped with a full tubular chassis, door bars, custom roll cage, suspension mounts and RTR carbon-fiber body panels. The wheels are 18-inch fifteen52 three-piece alloys encased in bespoke Pirelli Trofeo R rubber.
The unveiling comes days before the car is set to star in Gymkhana Seven, where people are already dying to take a look at this monster.
