The fast and low 9 – Today: Ralf and his Audi A6


> 26th August 2017

The ap-girl-photoshoot is our annual top-event, together with the tuning-community in Germany. After countless applications and a casting-process over many month, we were finally ready for a adrenalized weekend, full of cool cars and hot girls. As a part of this event, we would like to introduce you to 9 different cars who have two things in common. They all have been an essential part of the photoshoot and they all are equipped with an ap-suspension. That is reason enough for us, to ask all the drivers some questions.

The car
My car is an Audi A6 4F Avant from 2005. The car has 240 hp and the most important thing regarding the car is „the Hulk“ concept.

Why did you choose an A6 Avant?
The question was, which car will suit us. On the one hand I really like the A6 and would consider it one of my dream-cars, on the other hand, we are a family with two kids. So, the car is just the right mixture between fun and family.

The car is definitely an eye-catcher. Tell us some about the design, please.
Well, as you may see, there is a lot of work in that Audi. ABT side-skirts, Jms front-lip, GT diffuser, roof-edge-spoiler GT, sport-radiator-grille, black blinker, some carbon, transfer-printing and chrome, Dectane headlights TFL, 10-layer painting, Airbrush, Pinstripes, some wrapping and all that not only on the outside, you can find all the good stuff also in the inside including an airbrush in the tank-lid. I also added breaks by Zimmermann in green, an under car illumination, an ap-Sportfahrwerke coilover-kit and 20 inch Oxigin rims.

How about car-audio?
At the outside you will hear sound from the Remus exhaust system and a V8 sound-generator. At the inside the car offers a DVD system with monitors in the headrests and headphone-jacks. All the LED lights in the inside are changed into a green color and there is also S-line trim, saddler-works, a special steering wheel and lots of carbon, wrapping and paint. It has really more details than I can name here.

Wow, that is a lot of work. Tuning seems to be very important in your life.
Absolutely. I am into the „car-tuning-thing“ for 30 years, now. It all started with an old beat-up car and it never changed. To be honest, I am thinking about tuning 24/7. The last 3 years I was working on the A6. I am not in a club but many people know me from my site: or from the german tuner radio or from some TV specials. Other than that, I am visiting car-meetings on regular bases.

Do you have a funny little story for us, from your car-life?
Maybe a little story about the ups and downs of the work on my car. I had the rear bumper at four different painters but nobody was able to really mach the original color. So I thought, I try to get the proper paint mixed up and do it myself. It took me one grinding machine and 10 layers of paint and finally I got it. Of course, I was super-proud. But suddenly, one of the parking sensors pushed a little tiny part of the paint away and I had to start all over again. I think every serious car- tuner knows stories like that, but maybe it`s nice to know, that you are not the only one, who has those bad days.

What do you think about the future trends in car-tuning?
I really think, and this is very sad, that there will be less and less of the „real tuning“ in future. I do not really care for all these suspension, rims, car wrapping – and thats it – cars.
