Hunipigassus: The 911-based Pike Peak Racer of the Ken Block has been released

If the Ford Mustang Honeycoon isn’t enough for you, Boy Ken Block and the Hunigan Racing Division have something for you.

The Porsche 911 SVRSR “Hunipigassus” is a race car designed specifically for the 2022 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb (PPIHC) scheduled for June 26, 2022.

Built by Hunigan and world-renowned Porsche specialist BBI Autosport, the Hunipigassus is powered by a mid-mounted twin-turbo engine that produces more than 1000kW of power.

It is claimed to be all-wheel drive and weighs about 1000 kg.

Hunipigassus was specially designed to suit the driving style of the block and has a transmission tunnel, known as the “chorizo ​​tunnel”, which extends from shoulder height to the front axle, causing gravity to become a low center.

There are also height-adjustable suspensions based on previous year’s GPS telemetry.

It’s been a decade since Hunipigassus was created, and BBI Autosport wants to “create the ultimate vintage Porsche Racecar.”

The racer is based on a vintage 964-series Porsche 911-inspired body and features a bulging wheel arch, an extreme arrow bodykit with a huge rear wing, as well as wide and slick toy tires with center-locking wheels.

Its livery was created by Canadian snowboarder and street artist Trouble Andrew, also known as GucciGhost, paying homage to the 1971 Porsche 917/20 “Pink Pig” Le Mans race.

As part of an official partnership with Mobil 1, Hoonipigasus has the Pegasus symbol on its lever.

In addition to competing in the Hoonipigasus Pikes Peak Open (PPO) class, the Block and Hunigan Racing Division aims to add eight previous podiums to BBI Autosport and five class wins in 2022 PPIHC.

Batim Berisha, founder of BBI Autosport, said:

“It doesn’t get any more mentality from technology, power, aero and visual perspectives. The real vision of the car came from my longtime friend, Joe Scarborough of Scarbo Performance, almost a decade ago. “

“Then we teamed up with our most talented engineers and designers, dropped the book and took an unconventional path. We’re building the worst 911 in the world. “

Ken Block, co-founder of Hunigan, said: “One of the big reasons why I’m a rally driver is the Pikes Peak Hill Climb.

“I’ve always wanted the opportunity to race to the top level and compete for the overall win – and with our team and BBi Autosport making this amazing Porsche, we’ve got a good shot!”

This is not the first racing in the block at Pikes Peak. In 2005 he raced a Subaru WRX STI Group N Rally car in 2005 and has since done so on the methanol-powered 1965 Ford Mustang Hunicorn RTR V2 as part of the iconic “Climbkhana: Pike’s Peak” video.
