OK, it’s not exactly a factory stock model. The pickup was built by Detroit Speed on a custom tube frame chassis and is powered by the turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 from a Ford GT Le Mans race car tuned to a raucous 914. hp.

In Climbkhana 2 Block used it to drift up China’s Tianmen Mountain, which is billed as one of the world’s most dangerous roads.
