Ken Block’s Audi S1 Hoonitron


Remember the legendary Audi Sport quattro S1 which dominated Pikes Peak? The legend is reborn with the S1 e-tron quattro Hoonitron, developed by Audi Sport at Neckarsulm for drift artist, Ken Block. The car has a carbon fibre chassis, two electric motors, all-wheel drive, and FIA safety spec.

Block tried the car for the first time in November 2021, in Germany. “I’m familiar with a wide variety of cars using internal combustion engines and transmissions, but there were a lot of new things for me to learn here. Spinning into a doughnut at 150km/h directly from a standstill – just using my right foot – is an all-new experience for me,” says Block.
