Museum of the Future hosts Iconic Audi

Audi Middle East has announced the first-ever arrival of the brand’s unique and iconic S1 e-tron quattro Hoonitron to the Middle East, at the Museum of the Future. The S1 Hoonitron has been making waves globally since its debut in the Elektrikhana film, where it was seen drifting through the streets of Las Vegas with the late legendary drifter, Ken Block, at the wheel. 

The S1 Hoonitron is just one of several exciting Audi show cars to be displayed for visitors this year as part of the successful ongoing collaboration between Audi Middle East and the museum. 

The revolutionary Hoonitron’s all-wheel drivetrain is fully electric, with the front and rear axles each powered by a motor-generator unit (MGU). Four high-voltage batteries from a standard Audi PHEV model supply the drivetrain system and operate at 800 volts. Each MGU develops 250 kW of power and 320 Nm of torque, resulting in a total output of 500 kW and 640 Nm of torque.

Inspired by the iconic 1987 Audi Sport quattro S1 Pikes Peak car, the S1 Hoonitron combines Audi’s electric drivetrains from large-scale production and motorsport.
