Ken Block’s new Audi is completely modified for the ski slopes

Professional rally driver and gymkhana legend Ken Block is known for having unique but incredible taste in cars – with his ‘Hoonicorn’ Ford Mustang perhaps the best known of all.

Now partnered with Audi and dipping his toes into the world of EVs, the Hoonigan Racing Division driver has applied his eclectic modification tastes to his new daily drive – an Audi RS e-tron GT.

And it looks ready to hit the ski slopes.

Finished in a flat white wrap with black accents for a stormtrooper-like appearance, the low-riding electric saloon sits on Rotiform NGO wheels with grey Aerodiscs up front for a focused, asymmetrical look.

The wheels were also chosen by his fans through a poll on his Instagram account.

Perhaps the biggest modification though, is the big roof box on top which carries his snowboards and gear for the slopes.

Living in the mountains, it’s safe to say that with its all-white appearance, this silent 637hp beast will be perfectly camouflaged.

What’s been left unchanged, however, is the height-adjustable air suspension, which Block says he finds useful for preventing it from getting stuck in the snow.

Likewise, the dual-motor electric drivetrain remains stock.

Block’s new e-tron daily isn’t the only result of his partnership with Audi.

The German company has also built him a one-off electric prototype for his upcoming Elektrikhana video – the S1 Hoonitron – which was revealed back in December 2021.
