Ken Block’s ELECTRIKHANA: High Stakes Playground; Las Vegas

2 min read

The Hoonigan Media Machine is back at it, and this time HHIC Ken Block is back at the wheel. When they built it seem like the Gymkhana franchise was becoming handed over to Travis Pastrana, it is crystal clear that there is nonetheless some petrol left in Block’s tank. Only this time, there is only electric power, as Kenny from the Block (sorry) is hooning an EV, a lot like Vaughn Gittin Jr. did last yr. Block is now an Audi gentleman (which is conveniently obvious in ever scene) and the most up-to-date movie is based in Las Vegas. It starts with Block unplugging his new Audi S1 HOONITRON, an all-electrical tire shredder.

The 800 volt, bi-motor, AWD Hoonitron departs silently with just some tire sounds and a sinister whirring seem. I do miss the cracks and pops of the EcoBoost rally cars and the hearth breathing Hoonicorn and Hoonitruck. A garage exit is promptly followed up by some sideways action all over the Paris Las Vegas Hotel & On line casino.

Oddly plenty of, all of the inside cameras look grainy, or possibly like there is some thing on the lens. It’s an uncharacteristically inadequate watch, just about seems like they were being from one of Block’s rally automobiles and not on a high-spending budget gymkhana film.

Still, there are some excellent glamour pictures of the Las Vegas strip with the tire-cigarette smoking Hoonitron sliding around.

Oh and there are a ton of Audis.

I think my favourite little bit is when he does literal donuts in the foyer of a on line casino.

Regrettably there is not a ton of variety, it’s generally just drifts and donuts. At 1 issue Block circles all-around a boxing ring on top of a parking garage whacking significant baggage.

But that is about it. There isn’t significantly of a sense of threat, it all feels incredibly managed and safe and sound. Which will make feeling, it almost certainly was. Block isn’t getting any youthful, so I visualize a ton of this is orchestrated to continue to keep the substantial franchise operator in good health and fitness. I just did not have that perception of pleasure and in no way cringed with pleasure as he came close to an obstacle. Regardless, it is a pleasurable way to expend 9-minutes and 35 seconds however, so I advocate a check out.

OH right, the video. Below you go, permit us know in the feedback what you considered:
