Ken Block’s Hoonitruck Replica is as wild as the original pickup

The racer Ken Block, who likes to drive in controlled drifts on very powerful cars, has already become a very famous person. To Necator a while ago, a video was published in which he traveled in a 1977 Ford F-150, a modernized American pickup truck. The car, called “Hoonitruck”, is equipped with a powerful 900-horsepower engine.

It is noteworthy that a couple of hours ago, photos of this pickup truck appeared on the Internet – this car looks as if it was left in the dryer for too long. The author of this replica is Alex Sant. I must admit that the final version of the truck turned out very good.

 While Ken Block’s original Hoonitruck was based on an old American 1977 Ford F-150 pickup, the Honda N600 was taken as the basis for the replica.

This compact car was serially produced from 1967 to 1970. Engineers made significant changes to the design of the car, in particular, they installed in the rear of a small cargo platform. Thus it turned out a small pickup. It is in the rear of the upgraded Honda N600 that the 1.0-liter 4-cylinder Suzuki GSX-R engine, whose power is about 190 horsepower, is located. The weight of the truck is just over 454 kg.

  A motorcycle gearbox is installed as a transmission – its handle is located on the gearshift control lever for controlling the clutch. According to Alex Sant, the small weight of a pickup truck, as well as sufficient engine power, allow this little car to do real wonders on the road.
