Ken Block also lined up, and moved to an electric car. The new Audi S1 e-tron, a monster named Quattro Hoonitron, will be the protagonist of the 2022 film Elektrikhana.
The car couldn’t deny that it was inspired by the legendary Audi S1 Quattro, including the Pikes Peak version.
“The S1 Hoonitron combines a lot of what Audi was famous for in the 80sBlock said. “For example, we put the car’s impressive aerodynamic elements into a truly modern look.
“I think it’s great that Audi designers have taken inspiration from their past, taken car technology and looked at the present in a unique way.“
Under the chassis there are two engines that drive each wheel, of course, according to the quattro name. The performance was framed as Rolls-Royce said at the time: “Enough,” but the actual numbers were not disclosed. The Hoonitron is based on a chassis made of carbon fiber and of course the body is made of this material.
Already try the car block, it can pull the buns out of a standing position at a speed of 150 km / h.
“When we first heard about this project, our entire team was immediately excited: we had the opportunity to develop a car that would combine our brand icon with the future.said Mark Leste, chief designer at Audi.
“It was about creating a modern, all-electric interpretation of the S1 Pikes Peak. The time frame was very tight: while our design process typically takes a year and a half, we only had four weeks from first sketch to final state. We were in constant contact with Ken Block and his team and we had extensive discussions.”
Block’s next video, “Electrikhana,” is scheduled for next year, and this will be the first time Audi has been featured in a video for this series.
