Audi S1 e-tron Quattro Hoonitron Unveiled
Audi has unveiled the S1 e-tron quattro Hoonitron that has been exclusively and uniquely developed for American drift artist Ken Block. The all-electric one-of-a-kind car will be the protagonist in a new video that Block is producing together with his team for release in the next few months. Two electric motors, all-wheel drive, power galore, a carbon fibre chassis, and the full safety standards as prescribed by motorsport's top governing body, the FIA - these are merely the S1 Hoonitron's statistics. In November, the driver got to know the car for the first time.
The entire development, including the technology, of the S1 Hoonitron was conducted by Audi Sport at the Neckarsulm location - and that's significant because the Audi RS e-tron GT is produced at this site. We've driven the car and know exactly what a beast it is. Audi Design in Ingolstadt was responsible for the styling.
Fans will soon be able to see the US star's success with the project for themselves: under the working title Elektrikhana, Ken Block and his team are going to produce the next video of his famous Gymkhana series featuring the S1 Hoonitron.
