The car was also at the tuning fair Automec in Sao Paulo in 2019, and stood there at the booth of the lamp manufacturer. This was made possible by the employees of “The Underground”, a branded tuning event, which made contact with Osram. As an exhibit, the formerly white GTI was presented with an unusual foiling encased by Osram.
