Ken Block’s Hoonicorn Ford Mustang Takes On Rob Dahm’s 4-Rotor AWD Mazda RX-7

In the Hoonicorn vs. the World series, Hoonigan finds if their Mustang is faster than a built 4-rotor turbocharged RX-7


  • The Hoonicorn is a 1,400-horsepower internet-famous 1965 super-Mustang.

  • Dahm’s is not quite as famous or powerful 1,240-horsepower FD RX-7.

  • The Mazda sheds weight in the first two runs.


If you’ve spent any amount of time on YouTube seeking automotive content you will have undoubtedly come across videos entitled “Gymkhana” starring Ken Block and his cars. One of his weapons is a 1965 1,400-horsepower AWD Ford Mustang. In their new Hoonicorn vs. the World series, they take on a number of super-powered cars including an FD Mazda RX-7.

The Hoonicorn first came about 6 years ago and has since gone on to international fame through Gymkhana videos and even appearing in video games. One such fan of the ’65 Stang and builder of the 4-Rotor AWD Mazda RX-7 once commented on the first Hoonicorn vs. the World about imagining what it would be like to line up against the Hoonicorn. Now he has.

Rob Dahm may not have outpaced the Hoonicorn but his build, which can be followed on his Youtube channel is epic. We hope Dahm gets another chance once he gets his hood back together and gets a few more practice launches.
