An informative post on Penang.
The Volkswagen Arteon is one handsome fella, there should be no dispute there but a group of Volkswagen enthusiasts wanted more so together with Volkswagen USA, here’s what they came up with.
What you see here is called the Arteon Big Sur; named after the scenic coastline in California.
“We wanted the car to make an loud statement and stop people on their tracks,” the enthusiast group said.
What’s sure to stop Volkswagen fanboys on their tracks are the 20-inch, gloss black Rotiform TUF-R cast monoblock wheels that match the car so well, you’d think they were factory wheels.
Starting life as an Urano Gray Arteon, it now wears a Forest Green wrap; a colour we think Volkswagen should bestow upon the Arteon for the brand’s younger customers.
“It was more of an aesthetic design makeover than a performance upgrade. We wanted to keep it in the boundaries of something someone could easily achieve,” said the enthusiast group.
“We took all the doors off the vehicle – along with the front hood and rear hatch – and spent a good 50 to 60 hours to make sure that the wrap was applied perfectly. We want it to look like a paint job from afar”.
Supplementing the R-Line body kit by Volkswagen is a custom front splitter, custom panels for the side and a custom rear spoiler. The car has also been lowered by around 40 mm with a set of coilover suspension.
