Almost a year after his death in a snowmobile accident, Hoonigan and Audi will release the final Ken Block film, Electrikhana TWO.
Following on from 2022’s Electrikhana (pictured), which until now was believed to be the final Ken Block film, Electrikhana TWO will feature the World Rally and Rallycross veteran tearing up Mexico City in the all-electric Audi S1 Hoonitron.
In a trailer video posted on YouTube, Block can be seen launching from the Plaza de Toros, drifting around roundabouts, and charging around the grounds of Mexico City International Airport in a nod to the early Gymkhana films.
It is the second Block film to be shot in Mexico after Gymkhana TEN, which featured a Ford Focus RS RX (and a Can-Am Maverick X3 XRS turbo in a spin-off video) on the streets of Guanajuato, and comes after the Hoonitron’s debut last year, in which Block took to Las Vegas.
Electrikhana in Vegas was Block’s first collaboration with Audi, with which he joined forces to work on electric projects after his 11-year relationship with Ford came to an end. The Audi S1 e-tron quattro Hoonitron was the first car to result from the collaboration, and followed in the footsteps of the Projekt E Ford Fiesta he raced in 2020 and the Extreme E Odyssey 21 which he tested in the same year.
After Electrikhana – and now Electrikhana TWO – the car made its public debut in the hands of nine-times Le Mans winner Tom Kristensen at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed.
But nearly two years after the car was revealed for the first time, Audi is still keeping its cards close to its chest, although we know it can launch into a 93 mph donut from a standstill in an instant – because Ken Block – while Block himself speculated that development of the car cost eight figures, its laser headlights alone are said to have cost $300,000.
Electrikhana TWO will arrive in December. You can watch the trailer below.
