Audi has a very strong and rich racing history and that persona still translates into their road-going vehicles especially in their performance ranges such as the "S" and "RS" models.

Ken Block has now officially taken ownership of his brand new Audi S1 that will carry him into the future of Gymkhana! Behold, the brand new Audi S1 Hoonitron!

Ken has clearly taken a liking to electric cars, especially after he tried out the Ford Mustang Mach-E! Now, he has a dedicated EV for himself!

“I’m familiar with a wide variety of cars using internal combustion engines and transmissions,” he said about his short test last month in Germany, “but there were a lot of new things for me to learn here."

“Spinning into a donut at 150kmh (93mph) directly from a standstill – just using my right foot – is an all-new experience for me. Our work was focused on getting the car and I used to each other. The Hoonitron is writing the next chapter in our history and taking our Gymkhana story into the future,” - Ken Block
