For the very first time ever, Ken Block and the well-known Gymkhana sequence goes electrical. Ladies and gents, welcome to Electrickhana.
Ken Block has developed 10 wildly productive Gymkhana films with in excess of a billion sights on YouTube where by he flexes his astounding driving abilities driving the wheel of relatively severe equipment. All of these machines right up until now run on fossil fuels.
Ken Block and Hoonigan are using the Audi S1 Hoonitron to the large-stakes playground of Las Vegas for their all-new online video.
The S1 Hoonitron reportedly has 6,000 Nm (4,425 lb-ft) of torque which is no match for all those weak tyres.
The movie description says it runs an 800-volt method and when there is no mention of the energy it does not truly make any difference.
Thrust perform and delight in!
The Audi S1 Hoonitron has two electric powered motors, all-wheel push, power galore, a carbon fiber chassis, and entirely complies with the protection criteria of the FIA, motorsport’s governing physique. Audi Activity produced it as a a single-of-a-kind vehicle completely for Ken Block. Its body shell, for which Audi Design led by Marc Lichte is accountable, immediately evokes recollections of the famous Audi Sport quattro S1 with which the 4 rings charged to the top rated in the famous Pikes Peak hill-climb race. Ken Block and his group engaged in near trade with the Audi departments all through the development of the motor vehicle.
“With the S1 Hoonitron we broke completely new ground at Audi,” says Oliver Hoffmann, Member of the Board for Technological Improvement at AUDI AG. “Developing a thoroughly electrical prototype for the one of a kind demands of our associate Ken Block was a significant and exciting obstacle to which the full staff rose with traveling shades. It is good to see how ‘Vorsprung durch Technik’ is offered in an all-new setting.”
