Ken Block will race the Pikes Peak on a 1,400-hp pink Porsche

Why Block Picks is going back to Peak. But instead of making a flashy stunt video, the block’s goal is to compete and win overall at the prestigious rally event. He will also do it all from the driver seat of this offensive custom BBi autosport-built Porsche SVRSR, nicknamed “Honeypigasas”.

Now, performance is the biggest aspect of this car, but we’re sure some of you will read that name and wonder what the deal is. It’s a mash-up of three things about cars. The first part is due to the block’s automotive brand Hunigan. The second part is a reference to Liver, made by street artist Trevor Andrew, aka Trouble Andrew or Guccihost. The color scheme is a Porsche 917/20 “Pink Pig” drama that ran in 1971 with a pink work in Le Mans and a butcher-cut label around it. The final part of the Pikes Peak car name is a reference to the Mobil 1 “Pegasus” logo. The oil company is collaborating with the team and providing fluids and support.

Once the name and color scheme is off, we can get back to the juicy details of the car. As mentioned earlier, it was built by BBi Autosport, California. The company has been building and racing porches at Pikes Peak for several years and has so far won five classes and finished eight podiums, although it has not yet scored and won overall. The car is powered by a twin-turbo 4.0-liter flat-six that produces 1,400 horsepower. This is the same power as the Honeycorn Mustang in the block. The engine is mated to all-wheel-drive, and the whole thing weighs just over 2,200 pounds. It also features adjustable suspension based on GPS data and plenty of aerodynamic aids.

Pix’s Peak International will compete in the open climb on Hill 26 June in the block and Porsche. This year’s event will be the 100th race.
