In April, as part of our travels to Wörthersee, we stopped off in the UK for a couple days to visit our friends at Prestige Wheel Centre. We talked with owner, Delroy, a bit whilst planning and quickly concluded that a quick stop wasn’t going to do the up-and-coming UK Team Vossen nearly enough justice. So as a result, we teamed up with Prestige to host the inaugural Vossen UK Owners Meet 2015!

Vossen owners and enthusiasts travelled from all over the UK to be there, some traveling over 4 hours just to come say hello.

Our friend, Si Sweetland, of Still-Static, came out with Wayne Russell (Edition38) and his Still-Static-equipped Audi S5 on our limited-edition VLE-1 wheels.

And even though this SQ5’s owner, Ian Kelly, was in Dubai at the time of our event, his dear friend, Paul Brown of C6 Carbon, made the several-hour trek for him to show off one of our favorite Vossen cars at the meet.

Amar, from Team SPB, brought out his Mercedes CLS, stopping the show with hydraulic suspension and our CV7 wheels. More photos of the CLS can be found below.

This Mk6 VW Golf R duo was a great treat to see as well, and an exercise of the eyes, as one was built to be much wider than the other—can you tell which?

After the meet we gathered a few of the cars and headed out to capture some rolling shots—a perfect ending to a great day with our new friends from the UK. As we look back on the trip we can’t wait for our next, and we thank everyone who made their way to the inaugural Vossen UK Owners Meet 2015.
