As style icons go, the air around cars like the Volkswagen Beetle and Porsche 911 is a heady space… space also occupied by cars like the Audi TT.

Edition 38 is the type of show where trends are set. While there are larger shows in Europe and even the UK where Edition 38 calls home, you’d be hard pressed to show us an event that has more quality builds per capita than here. Many of England’s most extremely modified Audis are put on display here, and as usual, the Brits do not disappoint when it comes to their cars.Edition 38 Coverage 2014 (photo: Si Gray)

The Audi SQ5 has a lot to prove. While not quite as difficult of a sell to enthusiasts as its diesel-powered European counterpart, it still signifies a clear break from that tried and true ‘S’ formula- at least in the minds of that aforementioned group.
