Videos of Ken Block's 1400-horsepower Hoonicorn V2 Mustang ripping around Detroit have been popping up all over these past few days, and it has us wondering: What exactly is this car being filmed for? Is Gymkhana 10 taking place in the Motor City, or is this something completely different?
Hoonigan Media Machine—the company behind all of Ken Block's craziest stunt driving videos—told last week it would be shooting footage for Ford Motor Company.
"We're here trying to promote Ford products in the city where it all started," executive producer Diego España said to Crain's in an interview.
Ford Performance is one of the main sponsors in many of Block's videos—logically, as Block is a factory Ford driver. Right now, it's not clear whether the filming is for a new Gymkhana video, or for some sort of other Ford-sponsored video. It's worth noting Block's car is covered in Forza Horizon decals, so the filming could be for a new Horizon game—but there's no way of knowing for sure.
When reached, Ford declined to comment. In the meantime, watch as the Hoonicorn flies up and down the John C Lodge freeway near the Cobo Center, and past an abandoned train station.
