Movies such as „The Fast and the Furious“ contribute to a more than dubious back-street reputation of the tuning scene. However, creating an extreme tuning car and offending the law doesn´t have to be an inevitable consequence. In order to demonstrate this, „TUNE IT! SAFE!“ was established. It is an union made up of several companies and other organisations from the automotive sector, even involving the police and the Germany Ministry of transport. Their latest project is to build an amazing show car which is transformed into a tuner’s dream for the Essen Motor Show in december. For this purpose SEAT Germany has provided a SEAT Leon. The company underlined that only legal and sound modifications guarantee safety.
„This will be one of the most spectacular tuning cars on display“, says Sebastian Küster who is buidling the vehicle. He is not only planning an astonishing airbrush paintwork but also a very „phat“ bodykit. An Eibach coil over kit, dark 19 inch AEZ rims and Hankook tires will complete the programme. Another highlight is the In Car Enterainment from Blaupunkt with more than 10.000 Watts. The Shuttle PC which will be also integrated is the fastest computer on wheels and has four CPUs. „I am sure there are much more ideas to come when we start working on the car“, tells Küster.
When the vehicle is finished it will be presented not only at the Essen Motor Show but during all major evens and fairs in 2008 includig the famous GTI-Event at the Wörthersee in Austria.
