Winter needs to end asap. This video of VAG Event 2013 brings us back to the middle of show season. This is one of the best videos I’ve seen that captures the ambiance and atmosphere of a car show.
2 R8s, 2 twin turbo setups. Via Pfaff Tuning.
We are upon the dawn of a spectacular sportscar era. If you thought Audi vs.Peugeot or Toyota was good. Wait til 2015 comes around. Joining Audi, Toyota, Porsche (2014) will be both Ferrari (strong rumour) and Nissan. The latter of which just announced a full factory effort for 2015. So thats around 10 works cars gunning for top prize.
Audi R18 E-Tron Quattro.
Toyota TS030 Hybrid.
Porsche 919 Hyrbid.
There are very few racing series left that harken back to true production based machines. Even WTCC and V8 supercars used highly modified vehicles. Trick motors, trannys, diffs and tons of body work. The US based Continental Tire series however, is one of the few true production based series left. The GS class consisting of sportscars with large displacement 6 or 8 cylinder engines, or boosted 4 cylinders. Including the Chevlrolet Camaro, Porsche 911s, Subaru Impreza WRX STIs, Ford Mustangs, BMW M3s, and Aston Martin Vantages. The ST class supports smaller displacement 4 or 6 cylinder coupes, sedans and roadsters. This includes Honda Civics, Mazda Miatas, Hyundai GenesisPorsche Boxsters, Mazda RX-8s, BMW 330is, VW Golfs, Mazda Mazdaspeed3s, Kia Forte Koups, and BMW 128is, I’d love to see the FIA fund and promote a true worldwide showroom stock series. Imagine adding Audi S5s and S3s, Mercedes-Benz C63s and A-Classes, Mitsubishi EVOs, Lexus RC-Fs and ISs, Renault Meganes, Lotus Evoras, Jaguar F-Types. An abundance of full works teams battling it out on big name tracks? It would bring back the win on Sunday sell on Monday sales pitches.
As seen by Matt.
Enjoyed this year a lot more and didn’t shoot as much, but still got enough to throw together a little video…hope everyone enjoys.
Disclaimer* Mauncho is drunk as fuck at the beginning of the video. It was taken 10 seconds after changing his clothes on my rear seats. Contemplated burning those seats.
For me this is the best part of H20; aside from the fact that there are far too many little get togethers to attend. We arrived early this year (Monday) so the first few days are full of empty parking lots and non-congested streets. It’s kind of nice; it’s easier to shoot at Taphouse, that’s for sure.
I was loving this TT, so simple, so good.
Yo Dan, why you no have bagged Tiggy yet?
Although my B5 looks dumb with the hood up because the grille is attached to it; it does make bumperless look less awkward. Still, Pre X Evo’s do it for me.
Ya, we know, it’s a VW show; and there are a lot of cool VAG cars in attendance. There are a lot of cool non VAG cars too, and we can’t forget them. They; this STI for example, are largely responsible for what inspires me when I change things on my own car.
Don’t ask me why, but this Allroad reminds me of Darth Vader’s TIE Fighter; only white…with copper wheels…
To end off; a few I got when parked on the side streets of the Ocean side around 45th.
Gill wasn’t sure if this was static or bagged…cut.
Someone we know just bought these
Not sure why this is the case, it just is. We’ve never had a shoot with Dan’s car before. With an interior like this, we have no excuse. Full S5 Interior (front and rear), along with door insert done by Stu. Almost too nice to sit inside. The car is also for sale.
Peanut butter jelly time.
We also took a few of this nice B6.
There are three parts to H20i. Cruising the strip, the get togethers and the show. These are the GTGs. Each year dozens of GTGs are announced/scheduled online. A few years ago they centered around the Convention Center. Last year they were at either Taphouse or Roses. Unfortunately, it looks like the property owners of the Roses complex are shutting that area down in the future. On to 115th?
We just gravitated to Taphouse. We were never sure what meet was going down, we just knew it was the place to be.
John’s Bagged Merc. His other Merc, a bagged 190E is for sale check out @thebrightlight on Instagram, if you’re interested.
We saw A LOT of lovely Caddys this year. We’re posting a special one later on.
SquuaadTSX. Much was said about this car.
Looney Low, we always post this car.
Damn, B6s got me again.
What’s H2Oi without some Imprezas? lol
