Every Mustang fanatic in the world has no doubt seen Ken Block’s Gymkhana Seven viral video. Block, Head Hoonigan in Charge of Hoonigan Industries, drove an all-wheel-drive 1965 Mustang dubbed the Hoonicorn RTR and the video has been seen millions of times on YouTube and thousands of automotive enthusiast sites, including right here on Mustang-360.com. Perhaps you caught a glimpse at the Hoonigan branded instruments in the dash of the Hoonicorn while viewing the Gymkhana Seven video and thought it would be great to have the same gauges in your own honing machine. Well, a year ago we would have told you too bad, as those were one off creations for the Hoonicorn RTR, but today we can happily announce that Auto Meter has released Hoonigan branded instruments.

The new line of gauges, built in collaboration with Hoonigan Industries and with direct input from Block himself, are now available and feature both a speedometer and tachometer in 3 3/8-inch sizes along with typical 2 1/8-inch gauges for oil pressure, water temperature, and so forth. Currently a 5-inch in-dash tachometer is also available with a 5-inch in-dash speedometer and an expanded line of 2 1/8-inch gauges coming later in 2016. The Auto Meter X Hoonigan gauges are now available at Auto Meter, Hoonigan, Summit Racing, and Jegs. They can be ordered from any Auto Meter authorized dealer as well by visiting www.autometer.com/autometerlocator to find your nearest dealer.

Currently the only speedometer in the Hoonigan lineup is the 3 3/8-inch in-dash 0-160 unit shown here with electronic odometer and programmable speed measurement. This size is perfect for the 1965-1966 Mustang dash bezel. A 5-inch in-dash speedometer is coming soon and will work well with 1967-1970 dash bezels.
The 10,000 rpm tach is available now in both 3 3/8-inch and 5-inch in-dash mounting configurations. There’s no word right now if Auto Meter plans to offer a dash/column mount style tach.
The current line of 2 1/8-inch in-dash supporting gauges includes fuel level, oil pressure, oil temperature, water temperature, voltage, and boost/vacuum. Additional 2 1/8-inch gauges will be appearing in the line later in 2016.
