In 2014, two-time Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters (DTM) champion Mattias Ekström established his own rallycross team EKS to compete in FIA World Rallycross Championship and made the Audi S1 EKS RX quattro the vehicle of his choice. Powered by a modified 2-litre R4 TFSI engine found on the road-version of S1, it is capable of a power output of 560 horsepower with a 45mm restrictor installed. EKS also took cues from the Audi Sport quattro S1 E2 while designing the aerodynamics for the S1, resulting in boxier fenders which is a staple of its looks.

Eventually, Ekström won himself a driver's championship and EKS a team championship during the 2016 World RX season with 4 wins and 2 podiums with his Audi S1, after a season long battle with the then reigning champion Petter Solberg.

In 2018, the second-generation of S1 EKS RX was revealed ahead of the 2018 World RX season. It features a new rear wing and a revised cooling package, with the radiator ducts located at its roof and its rear quarter windows.

2018[edit | edit source]

“The Audi S1 EKS RX quattro won the World RX Championship in 2016, and is one of the most feared competitors on the grid. Based on the Audi S1 road car, the 2018 car was built and developed by Audi Motorsport and the EKS team in Sweden. With improved engine management software, engine positioning, and cooling systems, the 2018 car develops more power than previously.”

“The Audi S1 EKS RX quattro returned to the grid in 2019, with ex-EKS drivers Andreas Bakkerud and Krizstian Szabo. The two EKS drivers were joined by Liam Doran, who made his full-time return to the series after a brief period away from the sport. Based on the 2018 car, the Audi S1 EKS RX quattro started the season as the clear favourite in the eyes of many.”
