This Sweet Looking White Audi RS e-tron GT Is Ken Block’s Latest Ride
Thanks to his new partnership with Audi, Ken Block will soon be hitting the streets in a particularly striking RS e-tron GT.
The Gymkhana star had the opportunity to create his dream RS e-tron GT with the company’s design team and opted for a very clean look that will make it the perfect daily driver.
For starters, the RS e-tron GT has been equipped with a matte white wrap that is contrasted by a number of gloss black parts, including across parts of the front fascia. The car stands out even further thanks to a set of mismatched wheels from Rotiform that have a classic rally-inspired aero disc design at the front and a more traditional six-spoke design at the rear.
Elsewhere, Block’s new ride features a roof carrier that he will use to hold use snowboards and boots as he lives in the mountains of Utah.
Powering Block’s new ride are a pair of electric motors that combine to pump out 590 hp and 612 lb-ft (830 Nm) of torque but peak horsepower does jump to 637 hp with the Overboost function enabled off the line. The EV can hit 60 mph (96 km/h) in 3.1 seconds and the all-wheel drive traction will certainly help it in cold and snowy conditions.
This isn’t the only electric Audi that Block will be driving. In late December, the German car manufacturer unveiled the S1 e-tron Quattro Hoonitron that Block will drive in a new drifting series dubbed ‘Elektrikhana’. The car takes design inspiration from the iconic Audi Sport Quattro S1 that competed at the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. Technical specifications about it remain under wraps but it is expected to churn out around 700 hp and will be a radical departure from the Ford Mustang ‘Hoonicorn’ that Block is most famous for driving.
