Well this is awkward, I bet when Daimler hatched the idea to spin off its truck division from the rest of Mercedes Benz, they thought that they were taking a weight off Merc which was going to race off into the exponential-stock-increasing-distance, whilst Daimler Truck (OTC:DTRUY) plodded along in the slow lane of the autobahn.

Not that the two entities are in any sort of competition, Mercedes Benz still owns 35% of Daimler Truck.

Ken Block Will Race Porsche 911 “Hoonipigasus”Up Pikes Peak

Things in the Ken Block and Hoonigan world have been changing quite a bit as of late. The big news happened last year, when Block left his partnership with Ford after 11 years. But as you might imagine, he didn’t remain a free agent for very long, returning to Subaru for a few races such as the Olympus Rally and the East Africa Safari Classic Rally. Shortly after all of that, he made the official announcement that he was joining team Audi, and today, he’s got his eyes on Pikes Peak and has unveiled what Hoonigan Racing Division is calling their next “Hoonicorn”: a 1,400 hp, Porsche SVRSR, dubbed the “Hoonipigasus.”

The all-wheel-drive Porsche was built by BBi Autosport for this year’s Pikes Peak International Hill Climb and features all-new livery created by renowned artist Trouble Andrew, a.k.a. Guccighost, paying homage to the 1971 Porsche 917/20
