On a recent tuning show I came across an impressive collection of rare Audi rally and road cars. Most of these cars arrived in China with the 2015 Hong Kong to Beijing Rally, and somehow never left. The rally was sponsored by Audi China and by FAW-Volkswagen, the joint venture that makes various Audis and Volkswagens for the Chinese market.

Time for Tuning. On Sunday I went to the Revival2K16, a large tuning show and follow-up on the Revival Tuner Showdown. See Part 1 plus into here. We continue immediately with the cars; starting with a very sweet Mercedes-Benz C-Class sedan wrapped in shiny blue and fitted with black wheels and shiny green brakes.

The show was on the Goldenport race track in north east Beijing, very well organized again; sprint races, all sorts of tuning contests, race demo’s, and even a swimming pool, which came in handy as it was 38 degrees Celsius in the shadow and much warmer on the tarmac. I sweated my ass off! Ticket price was 88 yuan, steep for China, but worth it.
Audi is heavily involved in managing and sponsoring the track these days, the good Germans cleaned up the mess and created order, attracting ever more events. They rolled out a lot of metal for the tuning show including a flock of rare classic race cars which I will show you later in a separate post.
Starting now with an matte green Audi A7 with a matching license plate, darkened windows, and gray five spoke alloys.
