Ken Block will compete with 1,400 horsepower Porsche 911

Ken Block will compete with 1,400 horsepower Porsche 911


Stunt and rally (cross) driver Ken Block has a new car to run with. This time there is no Ford Fiesta or Ford F-150 modified, but a 1,400 hp Porsche maintained by BBi Autosport.

We know Ken Block from amazing sliding videos and interesting (cross) competitions. One such competition is the ‘Pikes Peak International Hill Climb’, an annual climb to the summit of Pikes Peak in Colerado (USA). A special Porsche was built for these races.

Porsche 911 with 1,400 hp

The new hoonipigasus is basically a Porsche 911 with a 4.0-liter six-cylinder engine with two turbos. The power unit sends 1,400 horsepower to all four wheels. This time the Ken Block car weighs only 1,000 kilograms.

In addition to engine upgrades, the appearance has been completely improved. To begin with, the Porsche 911 is equipped with extensive rear damage, bumper nozzle and diffuser. This requires Ken Block to run a 20-mile[20 km]hike to climb the hill as quickly as possible.

Storytelling

To emerge during the race, the team chose a pink dress similar to the Porsche 917/20 used by Le Mans. Surprisingly, Martini – the main sponsor at the time – thought the car was too bad to put ‘Martini’ stickers on the car.

Worse or not, behavioral presentation is certainly clearly visible. On Sunday, June 26, 2022, Ken Block’s 1,400 hp Porsche 911 will be shown. Whether the driver can take the record from Romain Dumas and his Volkswagen R ID is still unknown.

The 1,400 horsepower of the Porsche 911 is enough for Ken Block

The Frenchman drove in 2018 safari at 7: 57.148 minutes. In any case, Ken Block has an edge in terms of power. Volkswagen produced ‘sole’ 680 hp with a weight of less than 1,100 kg (plus driver).
