Ken Block changed the game In October of 2022 when he added to his world-famous Gymkhana series, but with a modern twist by using an all-electric car. This would be the start of a new Electrikhana series of videos showcasing awesome driving in locations where cars are not usually allowed. Not long after the first one was released, Ken Block’s accident happened. That was the end of the Electrikhana series, or so we thought. Ken and the Hoonigan crew had actually filmed a new epic video in Mexico. A decision was made to keep the release back, and the world finally saw it earlier in December last year, a month before the anniversary of Ken’s death. The original Electrikhana video has gathered over 9,100,000 views in a little over a year. We all knew it would be successful, but being done with an EV many thought it would affect the views but as you can see, that wasn’t the case. It did help that the purpose-built Audi S1 Hoonitron is probably one of the coolest EV builds created to date and that the whole package is wrapped up in a modern interpretation of the early 1980s Audi Quattro S1 giving it a much broader appeal. Electrikhana 2 was set in Mexico City, and Ken absolutely shredded things all over the place putting entertainment over car preservation. It was amazing not only for automotive enthusiasts but also for fans of Ken who had one more opportunity to see their hero in action.
Take a look at the YouTube video from Audi that was created by the ridiculously talented Hoonigan Media Machine that shows some of the behind-the-scenes footage as well as the planning of things with some commentary from Hoonigan co-founder Brian Sotto: Behind-the-scenes of Electrikhana 2 | Ken Block x Audi S1 e-tron quattro Hoonitron | Audi
