But, as mentioned before, this isn't the most exciting news he's got planned for the world. He's made it clear in his previous outings to Germany that he has always been a huge fan of the Audi Sport Quattro. He got to drive one while he was there, but he took things rather easily. Some people rushed to conclude that it's a shame he didn't get his way with the car, but fret not; he had a plan all along.
Because tomorrow he will be debuting his brand new 700 horsepower Sport Quattro "Turbo Monster" replica at the Toyo Tires booth at the SEMA Show. The car bears Walter Rohrl's signature as well, and it's, of course, powered by a turbocharged inline-5 cylinder engine. Oh boy, oh boy! Some noticeable details included are the Rotiform wheels, the Hoonigan hydraulic hand brake, a set of Recaro seats, and what seems to be a fully-carbon fiber dashboard.
This car will be used for hill climb racing, but we wouldn't be surprised if it also makes an appearance at the drag strip for the "This vs that" series. The only question now is: what kind of an Audi is Ken Block going to be driving in the next Gymkhana movie? It's bound to be an electric vehicle, we've already seen a 3D Artist doing a guest mock-up, but will they be announcing this project at SEMA, or is it going to be kept under covers until next year? At least we can be happy that he hasn't completely forgotten about his first true love: the internal combustion engine.
