SEMA 2014 Las Vegas Ford Mustang Hoonicorn Ken Block

IT’S MONDAY MORNING. We wake up and leave the hotel, ready for day one – before the show is officially open. We don't even make it to the conference center when we’re struck with a herd of Mustangs sitting in a lot across the street. There are models from every generation: ‘64.5s all the way up to brand new S550s. There’s even an ’89 Saleen SSC, and one of the nicest Mustang IIs – a rebuild, no less – we’ve ever seen. In all, there are over 150 cars from across the US that span the lot. Hosted by Ford, it was an incredible intro to SEMA – and it isn’t even an official part of the show! When we got inside, Ford had a massive display of Mustangs, to coincide with the showstopping Hoonicorn RTR and Mustang RTR Spec 5 Concept. It was a fitting tribute to the 2015 Mustang, which was also crowned SEMA’s “Car of the Show”.
