For the first time ever, Ken Block and the well-known Gymkhana sequence goes electric powered. Females and gents, welcome to Electrickhana.
Ken Block has produced 10 wildly profitable Gymkhana movies with in excess of a billion sights on YouTube exactly where he flexes his wonderful driving expertise at the rear of the wheel of rather really serious equipment. All of these equipment till now operate on fossil fuels.
Ken Block and Hoonigan are getting the Audi S1 Hoonitron to the large-stakes playground of Las Vegas for their all-new video clip.
The S1 Hoonitron reportedly has 6,000 Nm (4,425 lb-ft) of torque which is no match for those inadequate tyres.
The video clip description says it runs an 800-volt system and when there is no point out of the power it does not really issue.
Push play and get pleasure from!
The Audi S1 Hoonitron has two electric motors, all-wheel push, electric power galore, a carbon fiber chassis, and entirely complies with the security benchmarks of the FIA, motorsport’s governing physique. Audi Activity created it as a a person-of-a-type motor vehicle completely for Ken Block. Its human body shell, for which Audi Structure led by Marc Lichte is liable, instantly evokes memories of the legendary Audi Activity quattro S1 with which the 4 rings charged to the major in the well-known Pikes Peak hill-climb race. Ken Block and his staff engaged in near trade with the Audi departments all through the advancement of the vehicle.
“With the S1 Hoonitron we broke entirely new floor at Audi,” says Oliver Hoffmann, Member of the Board for Technological Growth at AUDI AG. “Developing a entirely electrical prototype for the unique prerequisites of our husband or wife Ken Block was a major and exciting challenge to which the whole staff rose with flying colours. It is terrific to see how ‘Vorsprung durch Technik’ is presented in an all-new setting.”
