    Audi in the 1970s, his Coupe S an exclusive GT variant would have set aside? Niklas Frist is currently giving an answer to this question with his precious Audi. Text & Photos: Ansgar Wilkendorf.

    / #1972-Audi-100-Coupé-S / #1972 / #Audi-100-Coupé-S / #Audi-100-Coupé / #Audi-100-C1 / #Audi-100 / #Audi / #Audi-100S-Coupe-C1 / #Audi-100S-Coupe-S-C1 / #Audi-100-F104

    Young Niklas looked out the window of his classroom at the teacher's parking lot. Of the many cars that stood there, however, interested the student only one: an Audi 100 Coupé S from 1972.

    The Audi 100 with the rear end in the Italo design of a Maserati Ghibli of the late 1960s, but at least a Fiat Dino of that time it had done to Niklas. He would like the car. There was only one problem or two: First, he did not have enough money for it, and second, the car belonged to his math teacher.

    But when the school was around, the then 17 -year-old in 1989 actually got the opportunity to buy the car for his former teacher for 19,000 crowns, or around 1,800 euros. To raise the money, he had to sell his moped with a heavy heart. For this he finally had his dream car. "The first drive brought me back from the world of dreams," smiles Niklas.
    "The head gasket had said goodbye, so I could only slowly roll home. Nevertheless, the great feeling was unbeatable. "But that came with time. Education and job simply did not leave him the space to continue the restoration that had begun, and so the car initially fell into oblivion. "A kind of Shelby version of Audi"

    "Just in time for my 40th birthday, I decided to breathe new life into the Audi," recalls Niklas, who is like his Coupé built in 1972. But he did not want to leave it at a restoration: "In his time, there was never a performance package or an exclusive GT variant for the coupe. Such a kind of Shelby version of Audi. I wanted to change that now with hindsight. "

    But before that there was a lot of sheet metal work to do. "The body looked so good at first," says the Swede. "But when the sandblaster had finished its work, there was not much left of it." For Niklas no reason to worry: He had come across several recommendations to Dan Johansson in Degefors, a "coachbuilder and sheet metal artist," the so far mainly styled American cars. Nevertheless, he quickly understood what his client wanted out. "The car was shaped to the wheels," smiles Niklas, "and grew accordingly in the width." The wheel arches come from the Golf 1 and that the end tips were widened, can be seen at the distance to the original remained bumper. "In the past, you could easily put a finger through it, today there is hardly room for a hair." In the course of the body work, the tank filler neck was moved one floor higher in the C-pillar. By the way, the owner of the coupe has cut the neck, welded here by Dan, out of a Victory motorcycle tank.

    The mix makes it!

    Under the new trunk floor not only the supply line to the tank has disappeared, but also the compressor, the valves and the air tank of Niklas implanted Airex air suspension. Previously, however, he had modified the entire powertrain. In cooperation with Bäcks Engine Overhauling first the engine received an update including cylinder extension, head machining, Weber respiration etc. The gear comes from a 1975 model year, so that the front brakes, which can be found on the 72er Coupe right and left directly to the switch box, could be moved to the outside in the wheels. Front as well as on the rear axle originating from the Golf 3 GTI is a four-piston brake system of three-Golf with 330 mm ventilated discs installed.

    Contact with the asphalt is maintained by the 225/30 Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires on the Dotz SP5 Dark in the 18-inch dimension. Of course, the exclusive GT variant also got an exclusive paint job. The paint called "Casino Royal GT Gray Metallic" comes from the supercar forge Aston Martin.

    Exclusive is also the interior. Hanngrens Car Interiour did a great job here. Both rows of seats were upholstered and newly upholstered with rough and smooth leather. Fittingly, the upholstery with the door and side panels and the dashboard. On headrests and mats you will find embroidered white lettering "Coupe S / GT". Hand-brushed aluminum has meanwhile replaced the wood look in the dashboard. The Luisi sports steering wheel got a new leather collar and the gear lever got a Simoni Racing gear knob.

    On the way Niklas enjoys the subtle sonorous sound of the 2.5-inch Ferrita stainless steel exhaust system. Every now and then it's a bit louder for the hard rock fan. With the support of buddy Racer Putte and AVD Sundvall, he has provided a suitable sound package. In the footwell works the two-way front system El Comp 5 of U-dimension. Under the backseat are two Prox 8 subwoofers, also of U-dimension, for fat basses.

    However, Niklas does not have much time to drive around. It is not just the job of Marketing Manager for Indian Motorcycles that captures him. It is also his new project, which he nicknamed "overkill". It is again the same type, but this year built in 1975. So much is already revealed: "What if Audi had built a rear-wheel drive S-Coupe with a V8 power plant under the hood ..."

    1. The filler neck comes from a motorcycle and has been placed in the C-pillar behind the gills
    2. Golf hubs thanks: behind the Dotz rims delayed a Golf-3 brake system.

    / #1977-Ferrari-308GTB : Drawn To Drive / #Ferrari-308GTB

    Steve Bolton is a child of the ‘80s, so the fact that he was influenced by a certain Hawaiian detective TV show is no surprise. The allure of the Pininfarina-styled body and the distinctive roar of the V-8 is a combination that’s hard to resist, no matter your age. The Ferrari 308 came after the unloved #Bertone-308GT4 , and many felt this was finally a worthy successor to the voluptuous curves of the Dino a few years prior. The #1977 #Ferrari #Ferrari-308 was also the first year of steel-bodied cars, instead of fiberglass, plus it had the desirable carbureted engine. Not many people get the chance to drive their childhood dreams, but in today’s film, this is precisely what happens. Even though this particular model is a GTB, versus the famous GTS, the emotion, and sound, is just as exciting.
