When Ken Block changed allegiance to Audi, motoring fanatics the world over knew big things were coming, and they weren’t wrong. The pairing has already resulted in some amazing projects and content for both Audi and Hoonigan and the collaboration is centred around Block’s motorsport career so motorsport fanatics around the world get to see the coolest content. With Audi looking a lot like it’s leading the way in the world of EVs, the brand was keen to have Block wow crowds in something electric and that’s why the man dailies a 637 hp Audi RS e-tron. When we saw this we all know that something special was on the cards for competition use. Around a year back we were introduced to the Audi S1 Hoonitron, a purpose-built electric racecar that’s destined for some interesting videos under the ridiculously popular Gymkhana series, although in this case it will be dubbed Elektrikhana. A made up word that we instantly understand.
We're sure all the details will be released after the Elektrikhana video drops in a few day's time, and we cannot wait. As is the norm, we fully expect the video to instantly hit viral status. Not only will it me massively entertaining, but it will set the bar for any future EV motorsport videos. Well it better after we all found out that this Audi S1 Hoonitron was completed with a budget of a cool $12 000 000.
Take a look at the YouTube video from the crew at Hoonigan that finally takes a proper look at Ken Bock latest racecar, the all-electric Audi S1 Hoonitron: Ken Block’s Audi S1 Hoonitron - The Details of the Electrikhana Gymkhana Machine | Hoonigan
