Time for a look at all the parked cars in Reifnitz. It was the place where the manufacturers like Volkswagen, Audi and Skoda had their own stand. Although I'm not sure if I could call it a ‘stand' because they were huge and contained almost every model they produce. I especially liked what Audi did. They had a closed off area where you could grab something to eat or drink and look at cars they rolled onto a stage.
This Golf MKI was parked under the Volkswagen arch that crossed the street and connected both the pavilions they made. One pavilion was reserved for the Golfs while the other one, that was built in the water, had the new 2012 Beetle on show.
There is something about this car that I really like but I haven't been able to pinpoint exactly what it is. The exterior looked super clean and the addition of the BBS wheels made it a winner in my book.
I absolutely love the Audi RS5 with its naturally aspirated 4.2 liter V8 engine. I found a complete build thread on this car that you can see on the A5OC forum.
These custom made wheels measure 21×10-inch et26. They have been made by ADV.1 exclusively for the RS Quattro. Behind them are the ceramic rotors and Audi Sport calipers. A truly amazing package.
Here is a part of the show that Audi did at Wörthersee. I'm standing in front of the Audi A1 Clubsport Quattro and I'm looking towards the rotating car platform. On the left you could buy all sorts of Audi stuff from keychains to rain jackets. On the right is the bar where you could order food together with a Mojito.
The A1 clubsport quattro was drawing a lot of attention…
…And Audi also set up a simulator so people could test drive the A1 clubsport quattro in Need for Speed World.
The cool thing about all of this that you could drive your car into the Audi pavilion and have it judged by people that work at Audi. One of the judges was a engineer while the other worked at the design department. Everything was filmed and shown on the big screen behind the car.
The third judge was this lady although I'm not sure who she was. She did like the cars however and had a special interest in this Audi TT on golden BBS wheels.
After your car was judged you got a personal show that ranged from cheerleaders to this girl doing an act on the pole.
At Volkswagen they debuted their latest version of the Golf GTI. It was pretty hard to take photos because of the crowd that gathered around it every time they rolled out the car. But I don't think everyone came to look at the car!
This is the Golf GTI Edition 35 to commemorate the 35th birthday of the GTI name. It has a new set of rims, a few extra badges, 25hp extra and some interior changes.
The first incarnation of the Golf GTI race car…
…and the latest descendant 35 years later. I hope to see this car run at the end of this month at the 24hrs race at the Nürburgring.
On the pavilion that VW built in the water was this Beetle. It is the most powerful version with a 2 liter turbocharged engine.
But in all honesty I still like this version better. I didn't even noticed the dented rear fender until I loaded the pictures on the computer.
A perfect example of how I would build my MKI except for the interior because that would be more race inspired.
A very sinister looking MKII on chrome OZ-Racing wheels.
It doesn't get any cleaner than this MKVI on Audi wheels.
Skoda brought their concept RS2000 with them that has been based around their Fabia Super 2000 rally car.
Inside the car I found more eye candy.
I thought you guys might like this.
Back on the streets I found this Audi Avant sitting pretty on BBS LM wheels.
I have even more to show you guys so get ready for another post shortly!
