Volkswagen Atlas GT

projects

A Sports Car. An SUV. The Atlas GT Its not every day that as an aftermarket parts manufacturer you get a proposition to work on a factory production concept vehicle. That's why when we received a call from Jamie Orr that he was working on a factory backed concept with VW, we were a bit skeptical. We were even more skeptical as he unfurled his idea for the concept, but intrigued nontheless. His concept was the - GT - an Atlas Cross Sport, with the Heart of a modified Golf R,  and the spirit of a Grand Tourer.  On paper,...

Project Q7 1 Day Project for Dubs at the Lake

projects

It's almost Ubiquitous  You see them every day. You probably don't pay attention to them at all. But as Audi's second highest selling model - they are everywhere. Most are forgettable. Great machines, full of technology and options, but aimed at a demographic that has little interest in modification. We thought we could shed some more light on what's possible with this platform. We intentionally kept this project narrow in scope, but we are certainly happy with the results. Starting from the ground up, we reached out to Rotiform for a set of their 22x10 et20 JDR wheels. To add...

Of course on any given day you will find all manner of machine, from classic cars to Ariel Atoms,...

Project Schwarz Update Part 3

projects

Project Schwarz : Update Part 3  It's been too long since we've shared what we've been up to with our MK7 Golf TSI Project.  While we haven't gone wild, we've made quite a few updates to the suspension, the exterior, the wheels and tires, and even upgraded the turbo.  The new combination of parts still play well together and equate to a subtle yet effective package.  Not quite a wolf in sheep's clothing, but definitely more than a coyote.  Regardless of what animal you equate it to, it's a ton of fun and is still very easy on the eyes. ...

Project Blue Ridge - VW Atlas Overland Build

Projects

Project: Blue Ridge 3.6 VR6 VW Atlas It's no secret that there's a growing trend to take a would be suburban hauler and attempt to make it into something it was never really intended to be.  From Subarus to Ford E series, and even a few Porsche 911s as well, this overlanding fad has gained quite a bit of momentum.  While it would be easy to shake our canes at the sky and bemoan the fact that these vehicles are clearly not built from the ground up as true off-road weapons, it's more fun to participate and see just what...
