Ken Block goes electric in Las Vegas for latest Hoonigan video

Drift artist Ken Block has released his long-anticipated Electrikhana video. In the film, Block pilots the all-electric prototype Audi S1 Hoonitron on the Las Vegas Strip, drifts along the famous Eiffel Tower, jumps from the parking deck of a neighboring hotel and tons of donuts.

The Audi S1 Hoonitron was developed and assembled at Audi Sport in Neckarsulm as a one-of-a-kind car exclusively for Ken Block. It’s powered by two electric motors, and features all-wheel drive and a carbon fiber chassis. The body was styled by Audi Design to evoke memories of the legendary Audi Sport quattro S1 competing in the Pikes Peak hill-climb race.

“With the S1 Hoonitron we broke entirely new ground at Audi,” says Oliver Hoffmann, Member of the Board for Technical Development at AUDI AG. “Developing a fully electric prototype for the unique requirements of our partner Ken Block was a big and exciting challenge to which the whole team rose with flying colors. It is great to see how ‘Vorsprung durch Technik’ is presented in an all-new environment.”

Electrikhana includes guest appearances from the Audi 90 IMSA GTO (1989), Audi 200 Trans Am (1988), Audi Sport quattro S1 Pikes Peak (1987) and Audi quattro Gruppe B A2 (1984), as well as the Audi R8 LMP and Audi R18 e-tron quattro from Le Mans. Nine-time 24 Hours of Le Mans winner Tom Kristensen makes a brief guest appearance at a traffic light as well.
