Watch Ken Block drift in a 1400hp Ford Mustang Mach-E crossoverJuly 30, 2020
Famed racer Ken Block decided to test a 1400-horsepower version of the Ford Mustang Mach-E electric crossover. As always, there is a huge amount of tire smoke in the video.
It was inevitable. The most powerful electric crossover that the American brand Ford has ever had, it would eventually face legendary racer Ken Block. The meeting took place, and naturally the crew was there to capture the entire smoky action with Block in the lead role driving the Mustang Mach-E 1400.
As part of this video, we will be shown two incredibly powerful Mustangs, as Block brought his Hoonicorn to compare it to an electric car. Hoonicorn is equipped with a powerful internal combustion engine. This is a very good comparison, as both cars have 1,400 horsepower and an AWD system for efficient drifting.
A few words about the car itself. The Ford Mach-E 1400 electric crossover uses seven engines – three in the front and four in the rear.
This arrangement provides a very wide range of torque control for different driving modes. As the racer himself said, these modes are very helpful for you to achieve the desired goal, whether it is reaching maximum speed or spectacular drift. In fact, the Mach-E 1400 crossover can be switched to exclusively rear-wheel drive mode. Unfortunately, we do not see this feature tested in this video.
Without a doubt, the rider is really impressed with the instant torque the electric crossover has to offer, and with a few test runs he’s starting to show his prowess on the track. The racer separately noted that strange feeling, “when you press the gas pedal with all your might and expecting to hear the insane roar of the engine, you hear some kind of sound from space.” In another part of the video, we are shown a gas-powered Hoonicorn with Ken Block sitting in the passenger seat.
