Ken Block's 1400 Horsepower Mustang Run Up Pikes Peak Is Insane

Ken Block teased his newest video last week, and, this morning, it finally dropped. It’s good.

In it, Block takes his 1,400-horsepower Mustang straight up the 14,000-foot Pikes Peak, replete with a close or call or two. Spoiler alert: Block survives, though not without steering through some obstacles in his path, like these snow machines (?) which would be unpleasant to drive into.

Block’s run up wasn’t his first time, of course—you can see the tire tracks on the road from what were probably more than a couple practice runs prior to the shoot—but it’s still impressive. Watch the whole thing below.

The 12 year old in me thought this was amazing. The 35 year old me would like to see him try to set an actual time (presumably requiring a different car and ruining most of the smoky fun-ness).
