Good morning! Just woke up in the middle of Germany after a great night of sleep! Left Stockholm at 04.50 yesterday, drove down to Leif, worked on the RS6 for 6 hours, drove down to Select cars to check out a Lambo build that I have been a bit involved with, picked up Fredrik in Copenhagen and drove halfway through Germany before we called it a day! Long one but super fun!
So here you go, some picks of the RS6, I kind of hate showing pics during the build process as you really have to have good imagination to see what the finished product will look like. There are basically two ways to rebuild a car like this, you can scan it and build the parts in 3D or you can do it the old fashion way if you are a super surgeon with shaping tools (like Leif is) I like the old fashion way as you can really see what the car is going to look like when you have it infront of you, and I love trying out shapes with cardboard and tape! This way you shape the parts on the car and then build a mould and create the parts from there. As you can see this is going to be kind of nuts, even for me! haha Great to play around with tape and find the last design details though, I know is not for everyone, but I always wanted to do a DTM inspired car, what do you guys think, wild enough?
The Lambo was also a crazy looking build as well, a LP 640 in the base but 100% rebuilt from scratch to a LP670, only a whole lot bigger wheels, bigger brakes, new interior and a TON of carbon fiber from DMC, can't wait to see this when its finished, the Aventador is cool, but my favorite Lambo will always be the Murcielago LP670!
Time to jump back in the car, picking up Janni in Munich and we still have 550km to go before noon, so see you guys in Innsbruck!
