Winter is over, we are in the middle of spring and soon summer will even be just around the corner: That also means more sun and higher temperatures, on some days it already feels a lot like summer. Of course, this lifts the spirits and zest for life and, last but not least, invites you to enjoy some fresh air in the convertible. The open Audi A3 8V is ideally suited for such a project. The example presented here has now been refined with a set of high-quality Barracuda rims - that's twice as much fun!
19 inch flow forming rims
The Open Air Ingolstadt rider stands on Dragoon bikes from the Ultralight Series. They are not only particularly light thanks to the production using the flow forming process. The asymmetrical design of the wheels, which are painted in high-gloss black and accentuated with gold hub caps, is also a real eye-catcher. In addition, they are clearly concave in the chosen dimensions of 9×19 inches. The tires measure 235/35R19. An ST X coilover suspension is responsible for the additional lowering by around 45 millimeters at the front and 40 millimeters at the rear.
Refined rear view
The conversion of the Audi was implemented by the Barracuda and, by the way, Cor.Speed base and showroom Vehicle Technology EFF in Bechhofen. The Middle Franconian specialists are also responsible for the diffuser insert from Rieger Tuning that rounds off the rear. Last but not least, this forms a perfect frame for the two thick oval tailpipes of the installed Friedrich Motorsport exhaust system – one each on the left and right.
