Some cars just have a natural attraction. At Spa while we covered the 24hrs race we had the opportunity to test drive the Audi S7. When I first saw the car I immediately fell in love with the looks. It’s a very big car that is perfect for those long hauls. A true grand tourer.
This Audi owned by Eugene Lod is unfortunately not the S version, but its 3.0 liter diesel cousin. Diesel cars are still very popular in Europe because it’s cheaper than petrol here. Nowadays the diesel engines are so powerful you really don’t have to be ashamed anymore while driving one.
The Audi A7 is a gorgeous car, so the owner did the right thing and left the exterior alone. He also left the interior alone because it is already full options from the factory.
The thing that makes this car really stand out are custom made rims that were specifically made for this application. The wheels were made by a company called Messer-wheels from Germany. They measure 22” x 10 all round.
But cool looking wheels aren’t enough to get you noticed at a car show these days, so Eugene made a phone call to Austria where Bagyard Airride is situated and they were happy to send a Bagyard Supreme system over to Germany. They sent it just in time so Eugene could debut his ride at this year’s Wörthersee event. The system is coupled with a Accuair management system that also provides two compressors and a five gallon tank.
Luckily for us Eugene also brought his A7 to MIVW so we could all admire it.
