Ken Block’s Hoonipigasus is a Porsche 911 with a 1400-HP Engine

Hoonigan Racing Division unveils Ken Block’s new Hoonipigasus racecar built by BBi Autosport. 

Hoonipigasus is based on a vintage 911, but it’s been upgraded to churn out 1400-HP with a twin-turbo 4.0-liter flat-six engine and an AWD system. It will compete in the PPO (Pikes Peak Open) class, so modifications were made to produce the power and force needed for the race. It weighs only 2,205 lbs with a height-adjustable suspension based on last year’s GPS data. 

The racecar has a “Chorizo” transmission tunnel for a lower center of gravity and a large front splitter and rear wing to increase downforce. Other modifications include a cut-off rear end, a roof-mounted air inlet, an extra ducktail spoiler, and a set of ultra-wide front and rear fenders. It sits on a pair of monoblock racing wheels shod in wide Toyo tires. 

Hoonipigasus has an extreme aero and a special pink livery designed by Guccighost Trouble Andrew, a street artist, musician, and Olympic snowboarder. His design is based on the classic “Pink Pig” livery of the 1971 Porsche 917/20 Le Mans racer, which had white and black graphics on a pink tint. It features the red-painted Pegasus emblem of its main sponsor, Mobil 1. 

Ken Block is no stranger at the Pines Peak races. He has previously raced a lower-spec Group N rally car for his racing debut year in 2005 and has shot the “Climbkhana: Pikes Peak” film in 2017. 

Hoonigan Racing Division’s Hoonipigasus will debut at the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb on June 26th for its centennial anniversary.
