To celebrate yesterday’s Forza Horizon 4 launch, Xbox invited Hoonigan Racing Division’s Ken Block to unleash his 1,400 BHP 1965 Ford Mustang Hoonicorn V2 on the perfectly manicured grounds of the world-famous Goodwood Estate. Check out the video below to see him in action.
Block made the most of his opportunity by drifting through the Estate’s pristine entrance and donutting around three classic British minis and even a WWII Spitfire. Later tried to take Hafþór Björnsson (World’s Strongest Man and The Mountain in Game of Thrones) for a spin, but the 6-feet 9-inch man mountain just couldn’t fit in to the car!

Block and his Hoonicorn were just one part of a two-day Forza Horizon 4 launch festival at Goodwood, featuring a series of unique and thrilling experiences inspired by the game, including Country Lane Driving through the Goodwood Estate and a Four Seasons Rally through bespoke tracks themed after Forza Horizon 4.
His 1965 Ford Mustang Hoonicorn is also one of more than 450 cars included in Forza Horizon 4 that players can collect, modify and drive. With new Drift Suspension upgrades and the ability to customize your driver with clothing and emotes, it’s never been easier to express your style.
