Alfonso’s Bagged S5

When your love for automobiles has been so deeply rooted for the greater part of your life, that to leave a car stock would be considered a sin, what do you do? You go on and build some of the sickest cars around. Alfonso did just that. Alfonso Vergara is a 26 year-old hospitality major born in Buenos Aires, Argentina and is a partner in AYP Rentals. His love for the automotive industry clearly shows through his builds as he continues his pursuit of owning and creating unique vehicles.

 

Having had a passion of cars for more then 10 years, Alfonso always has a clear sense of the direction he wants to take his builds. His love affair with automobiles started when he purchased an E46 BMW 330i.  A few mods went on here and there and then it went on to become a full-fledged, daily driven, show car. Nothing was spared when it came to this Bimmer, hence the $20k price tag on aftermarket and performance parts. Although this was one impressive build, what we’re most excited to discuss today is his latest project; his wrapped, 2013, satin pearl white, Audi S5.

 

Alfonso’s 2013, Accuair equipped, Audi S5 sitting on Vossen CVT’s is the latest build from this automotive aficionado. The car itself, as mentioned earlier, is wrapped in a satin pearl white done by Signature Customs and features a GMG exhaust, as well as a Europsec short shifter. As far as the wheel setup goes, the CVT’s are 20×10.5 all around wrapped on Nitto Invo’s 255/30/20’s for maximum clearance and perfect drivability. Keep in mind that this is Alfonso’s daily driver. This Audi may not have had an extensive amount of work done to it like some of the other vehicles we see in the scene today, but one thing we know for sure is that it does turn heads.

 

To see this Audi laying frame is one thing, but to then see it as it’s racing through the streets of Miami is another.  It’s almost as if your looking at two different cars. “That’s the benefit of having the Accuair management system”, said Alfonso. It allows him to go from a car that seems nowhere near functional all the way to a car that can swallow bumps and potholes with the best of them, as well as take turns like a champ.

 

Vossen, for Alfonso, is more than just a wheel company. It’s a tight knit family of people who just love cars. After having had three sets of Vossen wheels (CV3, CV5, CVT), we couldn’t leave this interview without asking Alfonso about his latest choice of wheels, the CVT. His answer was fairly simple:

“It fits the lines of the Audi Perfectly!”

A huge thanks to Alfonso for allowing us to spend some time with him and his beautifully done Audi S5. We can’t wait to see what’s next for this true to heart automotive lover. Be sure to follow him on Instagram: @MBP_Alfonso

We arrived bright and early with support from our friends at Need4Speed Motorsports to set up our booth area where we met some great Vossen Owners who parked with us for the event. Once set up we all chatted cars and walked around this amazing event taking plenty of photos and video to showcase later. The crowd was lively and respectful and over 1,400 LX cars with over 4,000 people attended! Check out the video below to see our footage of this one of a kind event.

As you can see it was a fun filled time with the most American Muscle we have ever seen parked in one area together. It left quite the impression and we will be back next year!

Vossen Japan Owners Meet

Imagine over sixty Vossen equipped cars at a single show, heads turning at the sight of flawless creations. Such it was at the owners meet in Japan. Held in the historical city of Hamamatsu—just north of the Pacific Ocean—the event was beyond packed. Towering mountains and tall, bare-leaved trees surrounded guests and attendees. All sorts of breathtaking cars lined the streets, with pre-appointed parking spots set for customers and dealers, respectively. Despite the immense turnout, people were civilized and genuinely excited to be there. Cars were shiny, newly detailed, and ready to be photographed and admired by Japan’s automotive community.

We felt the excitement as soon as we arrived. Booths were up everywhere and, as always, we showed up with goodies and exclusive Vossen World Tour Japan tees. We decided to provide lunch and refreshments as a gesture of our appreciation. It was amazing to hear the stories of supporters who had driven hours just to meet and mingle with our team. Despite the obvious language barrier, we were all united by our love and passion for automotive culture.

Konnichiwa – Vossen World Tour: Japan

The Tokyo Auto Salon exceeded even our expectations. Featuring some of the most incredible vehicles, this event is like no other. From Japanese to European and American cars, there is something for every taste and preference. While there, we had the opportunity to stay in the city of Chiba, about 25 miles southeast of Tokyo, where the show was being held. As expected, the event was packed, almost overwhelmingly so. The energy in the room was thick and, like always, we were ready to meet supporters and the crowds that gathered at the Mondera Japan | Vossen booth. Our beautiful Miami model, Estefania Serrano, helped man our station, her friendly personality and demeanor playing an instrumental role. We had the Vossen Precision Series on display along with our Flow Form Series, which debuts later this month. There was so much love and respect in the room as fans complimented our design and overall setup. We could not have imagined a better way to start the tour.

What a remarkable week it has been in Japan for the first Vossen World Tour of 2014! We traveled across multiple cities in Japan spending time with fans and friends and of course our gracious host Yuki, owner of Mondera Japan, our Japanese Distributor. Memory cards are full from pictures and videos that need editing and so are our stomaches from eating so many various delightful Japanese foods. Highlights are representing at the Tokyo Auto Salon, the first Vossen Owners Meet in Japan Monday,  visiting Mondera Japan’s beautiful facility, spending time with Lexon Exclusive,  a personal tour given by Lexus to “Intersect’, L-Select and Museums and a fun filled day Friday with the Hamana Crew in “Little Old Tokyo” featuring one of the hottest R8 V-10′s on the planet. We engaged ourselves in the Japanese Culture, taking time to visit  some beautiful historic temples as well as spending time in some of the sizzling districts in Tokyo.

Very exciting content coming soon from us here at Vossen showcasing our friends in Japan as we conclude our first World Tour of the new year.

“Full Throttle” With The Vossen C63 AMG Black Series

2013 Mercedes Benz C63 Black Series “Track Pack” is one of the faces of the Vossen Precison Series line of lightweight Forged Wheels.

The “Black Series” C63 has been painted “Matte Black” from the factory, and it simply looks sinister from the front and any angle you view. The AMG Aerodynamics “Track” package also adds a functionally tuned front splitter, adjustable carbon-fiber rear wing, carbon fiber accents and the rear seat delete.

In addition to the “track Pack” we designed and manufactured a complete set of Vossen Precision Series Forged Wheels specifically for this AMG beast.

This AMG package makes 510 hp at 6800 rpm and 457 lb-ft at 5200. Not bad for borrowing the internals from the SLS AMG. The symphony from the 6.3 liter V8 is unreal.

The Magnificent 2014 Mercedes Benz S63 | Vossen 22″ CVT

The 2014 Mercedes Benz S63 AMG has recently landed on our shores and it is  one of the most sought vehicles today. For those that have been fortunate enough to view it in person, the flowing lines of the standard S-class have been enhanced by a larger, lower air damn and other AMG accents to let the world know that this is not your average S-class. The subtle side V-8 badges and 5.5 liter AMG bi-turbo V-8 growl are also hints that this is a special beast. This car features the AMG Adaptive Sport Suspension which adjusts the standard AIRMATIC suspension. The AMG wheels are 20×8.5 up front and 20×9.5 in the rear wearing 255/40/20 and 285/25/20 tires.

For those that want to turn the 2014 S63 into a masterpiece, look no further than adding the directional ground-breaking 22″ CVT wheel from Vossen.

We debuted our latest Monoblock CV wheel in late September with its own micro-site and an industry ground breaking video release schedule, where a new video debuted everyday for two weeks. Featuring a true directional design with four separate molds which enables the driver or passenger side to twist in the same or opposite directions. The CV-T seems destined to fit on the S63.

Our internal design team doesn’t create a wheel design based on influences, but on formulas and harmony including an extensive process reviewing even car designs. There is even more to discuss in regards to our design process but let’s move on to how the CV-T perfectly works with the design of the incredible S63. From the front view, the thin spoke’s of the CV-T of course give those large AMG brakes a proper setting to be showcased. The multi-spokes add some tension to the front angle since it has large open air intakes, yet it blends with the LED light strip in the headlight.

Measuring 22×9 in front and 22×10.5 in the rear, the CV-T adds a larger footprint without straying too far from the factory specs so you can enjoy the benefits of a more finished overall design, better performance while not being overbearing. While the 20″ stock wheels are fine for most, notice how the beautiful W222 design comes into its own with the 22′ CV-T. The exclusive metallic gloss silver finish matches the silver finish around the windows and lower front, rear, and side valances of the S63. This combination makes an even rarer vehicle more exclusive.

Once again you can see the cohesiveness of the CV-T with the S63 by noting how the spokes of the CV-T also work with the LED horizontal taillights. The CV-T continues the Vossen trademark Concave theme and with the directional design it stands out boldly without shouting. The quad exhausts mean business and this vehicle now has wider 295/30/20 inch tires in the rear. Once again the sliver accents of the S63 match the metallic gloss silver of the CV-T.

Enjoy the full gallery of this one of a kind S63 by clicking the link and we thank and recommend Exclusive Motoring for your Vossen needs as they are an authorized Vossen dealer in the Miami, Florida area.

Vossen Apparel – Holiday Cheer Gear

Vossen strikes again, literally! Introducing new colors, tees, and winter gear. A new twist to our current clothing line, is the ¾ Sleeve Raglan Baseball Shirt. On the back of the shirt, #06 symbolizes the year that Vossen originated. Other new styles added to our collection include individual VVS wheels for Vossen owners who want to represent. There are a variety of colors for these shirts, available in our wheel designs, CV3, CV4, CV5, and CV7. A huge step we took towards expanding our apparel involves a new item, the Grey Authentic Sweatpants. They are fitted for both male and female, perfectly suiting the upcoming winter weather. Lastly, we strive to add newer, fresher colors to our clothing line. The Cranberry Scribble Team Vossen is a solid color, different than most of the gray scale colors we have previously done. The large sized “Team Vossen” hand lettering signifies owners who are proud to be part of the team. Also, our Neon Blue and Teal shirts were chosen to fit the in-style “sneakerheads”, a person who collects limited, rare, or exclusive kicks. A large portion of these shoes tend to be bright blue, yellow, or red, therefore, we aim to satisfy the different crowds who are a part of Team Vossen. Here are a few photos of the new styles. Visit the online Vossen Store for more photos and information!

Simply Clean 5 Event Coverage By: Vossen Wheels

Simply Clean 5 turned out much better than we anticipated. Last year we invaded Simply Clean 4 for the first time and the Vossen presence was unbelievable, so we were very excited to return once again to Daytona Beach to visit and hangout with our friends/family. We arrived to Daytona around 2AM when we decided to setup our booths and get our cars prepped for the early morning. During the show, we had the pleasure to chat with many fans who we finally put a face to a name and talk one on one with future customers for a more personable experience. Overall, the crowd is amazing and we had a great lineup of Vossen cars parked with us to share the passion. Traveling together as a team with around 20 cars was a blast. After the event we all decided to drive to the beach where you can park on the sand to film and take photos before heading back home.

Enjoy the event coverage from Simply Clean 5 this past weekend from #Teamvossen in Daytona Beach, FL

Vossen Corvette Stingray Photo Shoot Released

Six weeks ago, we picked up the brand new 2014 Corvette Stingray as our newest addition to the Vossen Project Family. After spending a day at the Palm Beach International Raceway, we released a video teaser along with a few close-up photographs. Finally, we have our first full photo set done on the stunning Vossen Stingray. The photo setting is startling, taking place on a dark, gloomy day. At an abandoned location, the lifeless trailers with bold, black and white graffiti creates a sinister look for the Corvette. The enormous, dull colored tank train in the background enhances the C7′s glistening black paint and aggressive edges. This mean machine showcases our upcoming lightweight forged Vossen Precision Series wheel in a gloss graphite finish. Click the link below to view larger, high resolution photos.

The 2013 Vossen SEMA Experience: Private for SEMA, Public for You

SEMA is called by many to be the “world series” or the “super bowl” of the auto industry and with good reason. For decades auto related businesses around the world all come to Las Vegas for a week to present their absolute best, from new products and services to full blown over the top builds. One of the most important aspects of SEMA are the meetings with current clientele and customers as well as meeting and establishing relationships with new ones. This is a business trip after all, even if it is in Las Vegas! Thus we are proud to present our SEMA 2013 recap below;

The team at Vossen went through various proposals for our presentation and booth this year. The feeling was to create something different to year’s past and different to what everyone else has done at SEMA. Last year our booth was somewhat completely enclosed and the suggestion was made to maybe have a private booth. This way we could really take care of our wonderful customers and clients as well as make people feel “at home”. We felt there was power in providing people with a home-like setting instead of going with a larger booth.

This suggestion quickly gained steam that the booth was going to be private unless an appointment was made with us. There was some reservations to such a booth, from maybe upsetting some people to not having our new wheel lineup showcased for everyone to view. However, we felt strongly the pros outweighed the cons and moved forward with plans.

Furniture was selected for a comfortable yet business look and we decided to play our current videos on three large flat screens with a Bose surround sound system. It was then decided we would provide refreshments, snacks throughout the day including a fully staffed bar in the afternoon, as a way to say “thanks” to our loyal customers, clients, fans and friends that attended from all over the world. Finally we decided to have “wheatpaste” art on our exterior walls to give our booth an edgy, hip and completely different look to what anyone has ever done at SEMA before. We were excited but also nervous as you can imagine.

Most of the team landed Sunday to help put the booth together and some other team members came at various time during the week for their own meetings. One of the highlights was our warehouse manager was rewarded with a trip to SEMA for his efforts in our move to a new facility, his first time attending. You see this week is just as much about the people as it is about the cars. It is about friendships and relationships formed for decades or new ones that will eventually grow.

You might be wondering to yourself what about Vossen booth cars? Last year we shipped the Vossen Project Ferrari 458 Italia and the Mercedes Benz C63 Black Series. This year we decided not to ship any cars as we were fortunate enough to have a strong presence in multiple booths with Vossen equipped vehicles including Accuair’s S7, the Airrex booth with a wide body CTS-V and Ferrari 350 Modena as well as a 2014 Stingray in Toyo Tire’s booth.

One very exciting development was our first official project car from a manufacturer. We were chosen by Lexus to modify and present a new 2014 IS 350 F-sport at SEMA this year. After much debate we decided to repaint the car in Lexus LFA “pearl yellow” from its stock silver and to modify it with a Rowen bodykit by TommyKaira, RS-R Black-i coilovers, Brembo Brakes, Nitto Tires and our new CVT 20″ Directional Wheel. We worked closely with Rob and his team at Platinum Motorsport for this build and they did an incredible job with the vehicle.

We worked crazily trying to finish the booth up Monday night, leaving in the wee hours of the morning trying to perfect the wheat paste. Luckily there was a 7-11 across the street for us to get energy drinks, water and snacks and we even ordered pizza to the convention center. We decided late that night to improvise on the back wall adding by words that represent the Vossen brand.

The SEMA show officially opened on Tuesday and our booth was packed non-stop for the entire week. The feedback we got was overwhelmingly positive about our booth design and we heard it was coined “SEMA Oasis” by attendees. Inside we debuted our upcoming “Flow Form” Series and our latest editions to our upcoming Vossen Precision Series which included our first “full face” forged wheels. We also showcased our new CVT wheel for those that had not yet seen it in person.

The owners of Mondera Japan, Eccentrical from Switzerland and Rus Wheels from Russia spent most of the week with us as we all got to know one another better. The vibe in the booth was laid back yet effective and setting appointments really kept things more organized compared to years past. I think Captain Morgans and Coke was a favorite later in the afternoon. Didn’t hurt to have the Jaro Sisters as our booth models.

Friday is the most laid back day as most start to wear jeans and sneakers and it gives people a chance to walk around the huge convention center. A highlight was a meeting with the team at SpeedHunters and being presented a gift of their latest photo book #joyofmachine. Vossen had a good presence at SEMA with equipped vehicles outside and inside. Highlights outside were “GalvatronHemi’s” purple Challenger parked outside Central Hall where he drove from Long Island, New York to be at SEMA. AGAutomotive also showcased their latest updates on their project IS 350. Inside we had over a dozen vehicles in various booths representing #teamvossen including the Vossen Project IS 350 F-sport.

SEMA week is an exhausting week for sure and you better be prepared with lots of lotion, water and chapstick in the arid desert climate. Part of the team records for video and takes pictures for photography to share and it is a lot of walking with heavy equipment. After the doors close at 5pm, evenings are spent catching up with family on the east coast before hopping in the shower, changing and meeting up for business dinners. We spent our week at Encore at the Wynn which meant some also spent some time in the casino as well. Food choices were utterly superb in many reknown restaurants but on Friday most of the team craved an old fashioned hamburger and fries from IN and Out where we ate as we closed out our week.

The team at Vossen hopes you enjoy the video showing you the week from our eyes as well as our photography to bring you to our small home away from home at SEMA 2013.

Vossen Attends Showdown in O-Town

Two weeks ago, Team Vossen took a road trip to Orlando, FL to attend the Lexus event “Showdown in O-Town.” There were a handful of events that weekend, Saturday took place at Ultimate Auto, and Sunday at the Lexus of Orlando. Ultimate Auto hosted the event in their parking lot, which held over 200 cars. They grilled BBQ, including hot dogs and hamburgers along with lemonade to keep everyone refreshed on the hot, sunny day. We set up our Vossen Booth at 11:00am, and by 1:00pm, the cars started rolling in. We brought Vossen “Swag” for everyone, including our catalogs, license plate frames, stickers, lanyards, wristbands, and iPhone cases. Later into the event, a huge crowd of people gathered in front of the shop awaiting the Vossen sponsored Bikini Contest. The models threw Vossen T-shirts and other items, as the crowd cheered loudly hoping to catch them. After the contest, the ladies took photos with many of the cars, as well as the owners. The next day, on Sunday October 20th, we attended the Lexus of Orlando Car Show. There were about 100 Lexus cars and a few other makes such as The Toyota Supra, Scion, and Infiniti. They had a VIP section in the lot that provided food and beverages. The music was awesome and kept the scene alive. There were contests, more Vossen give-aways, and one of the most intriguing additions to our booth was the new 2014 Lexus magazine “The Line” which features many photos of Lexus’ with our Vossen Wheels(Page 26-27). We were pleased to join Joel from Ultimate Auto and Lexus of Orlando for the phenomenal events. Special thank you to Daryl AKA Wringo for planning such an amazing weekend for Lexus Enthusiasts!

Vossen Project – 2014 Mercedes Benz S550

Two days ago, we took delivery of the new Vossen Project 2014 S 550 at a launch event at Mercedes Benz of Coral Gables. We had a great time at the event and of course seeing all the new Mercedes models, in particular the new S-class. This was a special order with the hard to find rear seat package plus. It is also equipped with the Sport Package. The craftsmanship of this vehicle is utterly stunning. It seemed bespoke and at a level on par with a Rolls Royce or Bentley in regards to the interior. The materials are first rate and everything flowed pretty well including the huge dual screens up front. They seemed to frame them to look like an iPad including the rear screens so they seemed familiar. The graphics were also first rate and the Command system was pretty easy to use, the biggest issue was there seemed to be 800,000,000 ways to adjust everything! The rear seat package plus is really awesome and perfect for someone who rather be driven or wants their passengers in arguably the best rear seats around. This vehicle also has cooled rear cup holders and a fridge that seems to fit three wine bottles.

The vehicle of course has internet/wi-fi so it will be a perfect mobile office at car events. The seats have seemingly unlimited adjustments front and rear. Though unnecessary for Miami weather, the vehicle has a heated package and I believe including a heated armrest. The sport package includes a different front, rear, sides. We noticed a rear spoiler is a $500 option on another vehicle so we might add that later, it looked pretty good. Another odd thing is while this has the panoramic roof (and the front sunroof itself is just huge) the entire roof is not black, there is a decently wide strip in the rear the color of the car that we will wrap. We rode in it briefly (full driving review to come) and it felt like riding on a cloud, quiet and beyond comfy. Everyone who has seen the interior never fails to be blown away.

More to come soon!

Vossen’s End of Summer Apparel

We recently released another collection to expand our Vossen Store. The Infiniti T-Shirt is a hand-lettered style tee that was made to showcase our Infiniti G37s. It has a movie poster style, including an original image of an Infiniti, a city scape of Tokyo, and a combination of clouds and galaxies to illustrate a dynamic feel. We are excited to debut our first item with a modified car, and aim to establish a series for Vossen owners with other makes. The idea of a Team Vossen Snapback was introduced as an accessory to compliment our T-shirts. It is a 3D embroidery, stamped with an Authentic Vossen Logo. Lastly, our Ladies tanks are also hand-lettered items that add to our women’s collection. The blue racer-back is a soft, burned out material and the white tank-top is solid to fit any occasion. Check out the photos below and click on the image to be directed to our Vossen Store.

Proud to Present The Fully Directional Vossen CV-T

We are proud to present the impressive, unexpected and fully directional Vossen CV-T. The CVT requires four molds, rather than the typical 1 or 2 molds for standard cast wheels. As a result, the wheels on the drivers side and passenger side of the vehicle twist towards the same direction, whether it’s a square or staggered fitment. The CV-T’s sleek, unconventional design sets it apart from virtually everything on the road. The CV-T is, to date, the Vossen brand’s magnum opus, a major achievement for the company as well as for the industry at large. The level of craftsmanship is a true testament to Vossen’s devotion to quality and innovation. The light-weight, low pressure cast wheel is available in a metallic gloss silver finish and is offered in 20″ diameters which will arrive on October 14th, and 22″ diameters which will arrive November 1st, 2013. The inventory is limited so be sure to contact your local authorized Vossen dealer to pre-order your set.

Vossen invades Importfest Toronto!

The highlight of the Vossen World Tour Toronto was “Importfest” held at the convention center in the heart of the city. Vossen has always been a stout supporter of this event over the years and for 2013 we made sure to personally attend to be a part of this incredible event ourselves. Well we were so impressed we will be back! The convention center had ample space and was a great place with its huge glass windows and sections for vendors and attendees. JRP was in the house as well as our friends at the Tire Connection with a Range Rover on CV1′s. This was an all day event and there was plenty of food, drinks and even slushies for people to snack on. From start to finish the event was jam packed with enthusiasts from all over Canada and even some from the states like ourselves.

We were pleased to have such a strong lineup of vehicles showing at Imporfest, from the famous matte red BMW 645 to the 370Z coined “MelloYellow” . As the day progressed we decided to have multiple giveaways for attendees and joined the DJ’s on the stage for some fun, passing out shirts, our skateboards and other goodies. Speaking of goodies, we brought the Vossen store with us to Toronto and it was jam packed with people eager to see the items in person.

As day become night, the show got “turnt up” with contests for the models in attendance, more music and a dimming of the lights for a club atmosphere. We had the pleasure of working with the Jaro Sisters in our booth and it seemed our location was a popular spot for all the models to take pictures and videos, it was interesting to say the least! What was even more interesting was mingling and meeting so many enthusiasts in Toronto and getting to know so many new faces and catching up with old ones. At the end of the night awards were presented and the bagged G37 with the teal CV7′s won “Best Wheels” of the show”!

We hope the video below makes you feel as if you were with us at Imporfest, the final video of the Vossen World Tour Toronto. Also scroll down to see some pictures of this incredible event and the vehicles there! Thank you Toronto and thank you to the team at Importfest for hosting such an amazing event.

2014 Range Rover Sport | 22″ CV4

Our good pals at the Warren Henry Auto Group received one of the first new 2014 Range Rover Sport’s in the country and immediately gave us a call to give it the Vossen treatment.  When it arrived we instantly fell in love with the updated classic Range Rover look and the luxurious interior with seemingly every gadget in the book. This vehicle has a factory air suspension so we decided to put it at the lowest setting for our photo shoot. 22×10.5 Silver Polish CV4′s were chosen to give this new sport a nice luxurious touch. Check out the full gallery by clicking any of the pictures below.
