Audi has revived one of its past racing icons with electrification in the form of the new Audi S1 e-tron quattro Hoonitron. The new car will feature dual electric motors, all-wheel drive, a carbon fibre chassis and a full suite of safety standards as dictated by the FIA.

Development of the new Audi S1 e-tron quattro Hoonitron was a unique one. Audi claims that for a project of this magnitude, designers and engineers would allot more than one year of time to produce such a ground-breaking concept.

However, the S1 Hoonitron had an accelerated development timeline of just four weeks and yet was still accepted by the team at the Audi Sport facility at Neckarsulm.

The car will be displayed at the Laguna Seca racetrack as part of Montery Car Week from Aug 17 to Aug 21 2022 and provide fans an opportunity to view the electric car that will be driven by Ken Block. Fans who are not fans of electrification will not be left out though, with a demonstration of the original Audi Sport quattro S1.
