The Hoonigan team releases Electrikhana TWO, showcasing Ken Block’s thrilling electric drive through Mexico City with the Audi S1 Hoonitron.
In November 2022, the automotive world watched as Ken Block and the Hoonigan team ventured to Mexico City to film “Electrikhana TWO” with the Audi S1 Hoonitron. The project, temporarily deferred due to Block’s untimely passing, has now been released on the Hoonigan YouTube channel, marking a fitting tribute to the late rally legend. Electrikhana TWO is an homage to Block, The Hoonigans, and Audi’s pioneering spirit in the performance EV realm. The film showcases Block’s renowned, rally-inspired driving style as he maneuvers through Mexico City’s iconic landmarks. Following lessons from the first Electrikhana film in Las Vegas, Block and Audi made significant improvements to the S1 Hoonitron, particularly upgrading its drivetrain to Block’s aggressive yet precise driving style.
One of the standout features in this new race chassis is the ‘simulated gears’ technology. This innovation, resembling a digital gearbox, allows for controlled levels of wheel speed, achieved through paddle shifters. The film also explores unexplored EV drivetrain capabilities like opposite-driven wheels for stationary AWD burnouts, on-demand switching between all-wheel and rear-wheel drive, and differential tuning for improved chassis balance. Additionally, the ability to shift into reverse at any speed is a groundbreaking feature showcased in the film. Electrikhana TWO takes viewers on a breathtaking journey, starting from Plaza de Toros, the world’s largest bullring, and weaving through Mexico City’s landmarks, including the Museo Soumaya and Benito Juárez International Airport. This latest Hoonigan upload honors Ken Block’s legacy while showcasing the thrilling potential of electric performance vehicles.
