Ken Block Signs With Audi Promising An Electrifying Future
Audi and Ken Block are now partners, but the German brand is being coy about the nature of their partnership. The company is only vaguely promising “exclusive joint projects in the field of electric mobility.” We assume Block sliding around in a Quattro-equipped is an inevitable outcome, though.
“Audi is the brand that ignited my passion for motorsport. I am extremely excited to start this new chapter. Together, we will develop innovative projects and push the boundaries of electric mobility,” Block said about the new partnership.
Block got to drive several Audis, including a Sport Quattro S1, V8 Quattro DTM car, and E-Tron Vision Gran Turismo. Unfortunately, the brand only released photos of him at the wheel but didn’t include the action in its video. Let’s hope the footage comes out soon.
Reading between the lines, we wonder if Audi is working on a special, high-horsepower EV in a similar vein to the Ford Mustang Mach-E 1400. Block could lend some legitimacy to the project by using the machine in his next Gymkhana video
