KEN BLOCK DRIVES THE EXTREME E ELECTRIC RACECAR IN THE DAKAR RALLY


This is the first time Ken Block has driven the new Extreme E Odyssey 21 electric racecar, and it just so happens it's on the final stage of the Dakar Rally.

Ahh... the life of a famous Hoonigan. Who else would get the opportunity to plop his bum down in the driver's seat of a brand new electric racecar and drive the final stage of the Dakar Rally? Obviously, that person is Ken Block, and the racecar is the Extreme E Odyssey 21.

The fully-electric four-wheel-drive vehicle weighs 1.5-tons, has about 400Kw of power, which is about 450hp, and torque, about a 1000Nm. The weirdest part of the video is that it sounds like an RC car, it even looks like a giant one!

All that's left to find out is, "can I hoon it?" Classic Block.
