Watch Ken Block’s Daughter Race A 4,000-HP Corvette In The 1,400-HP Hoonicorn

Ken Block’s Hoonicorn is now running a six-speed Sadev paddleshift transmission and some new wheels from American Racing, but the twin-turbo V8 still produces 1,400 hp, a figure that for once seems grossly underwhelming. Add in the fact that Block’s 14-year-old daughter Lia is behind the wheel, and it seems that this could be a real challenge for the Hoonicorn. But with AWD, an unprepared surface, and little to no mechanical sympathy, the Hoonicorn wins the best-of-three shootout. Of course, on a safe track with a stickier blacktop, the Hoonicorn would have no chance against a car capable of doing 3.5 seconds at 212 mph on the eighth-mile, but this was loads of fun to watch anyway. We can’t wait for the next episode.
