DC-Baltimore area Audi tuner New German Performance just happens to be an APR distributor, so maybe it’s not surprising they’d have a few customers with an RS 7 or an S6. More interesting though might be what happens when two such customers head off to a local drag strip.

The forecasts from Bavaria are unequivocal: in spring and summer 2014, wind speeds of up to 290 kph are certainly very possible, especially when the sun is shining. This is because ABT Sportsline, the globally largest tuner of Volkswagen brands, has done away with the original speed limiter of the Audi RS5 Cabrio. Now, the 450 hp (331 kW) 4.2 FSI can show what it’s really able to do. A fitting stainless-steel muffler system consisting of a mid and rear muffler underscores the eight-cylinder car‘s emotional sound.

Piracy knows no bounds. Whether it’s Sunglasses, Clothing or in this case Wheels, it seems that the marketplace is constantly flooded with counterfeit goods sold to unknowing (or willing in some cases) consumers for what is perceived to be a ‘good deal’. Aside from cutting into the profits companies use to develop new products, these goods are oftentimes poorly built and can cause damage to a company’s reputation or in the worst case scenario- physical harm to the end user. BBS is taking a stand against these fake wheels and their distributors, and has already put a stop to one internationally active ring of counterfeiters.

Like will to like! True to this motto, the located in the very north of Baden-Wuerttemberg Hperformance manufacture has chosen two Audi TT RS cars in a bit for ennobling. Individuality according to customer’s wish with hand crafted rough materials, as stainless steel, aluminum and carbon, is even the ultimate imperative for the tuning forgery in Osterburken city.

This fact proves that the promised „sound of will“ is absolutely achievable – hardly to be ignored while the photo shooting. The two Audi TT RS „make their voice heard“ by an exhaust system made by HPerformance beginning at the turbocharger – with a 80-mm pipe beginning from the turbocharger on the one side, and on the other with two 76-mm pipes beginning from the turbocharger.

We’ll be honest. Car porn isn’t all that satisfying. Sure, it’s pretty, but it doesn’t usually tell much of a story and I often don’t feel much-if-any more educated having watched it. I’ll give it a pass if it’s extra pretty or an extra cool car, but I’ve usually forgotten all about it roughly 1.5 hours after watching… if not 15 minutes. More…
