Seldom you see vehicles that are perfectly matched with a set of aftermarket wheels. This beautiful Nano Gray Audi S3 is one of the vehicles that make the best of its color combination and aftermarket wheels, this time, provided by ADV.1 Wheels. But, builds like these don’t come cheap! With a starting price tag of $2,295 per wheel, these lightweight forged monoblocks are certainly out of reach for most modders out there. However, for some, only the best comes into play.
This particular Audi S3 build comes from TAG Motorsports. The vehicle in question, an Audi S3 Limousine, is powered by a 2.0 Liter twin-turbocharged TFSI engine, delivering 292 horsepower between 5,400 – 6,200 rpm and 280 lb-ft between 1,900 – 5,300 rpm, the S3 can sprint from 0-62mph (0-100km/h) in just 4.6 seconds. While it may not be the fastest vehicle out there from a standstill, it certainly packs a powerful punch. To others, it’s also the perfect foundation for an aftermarket build.
This Audi S3 is equipped with a set of ADV05S M.V1 Monoblock wheels. Made out of forged aluminum, these wheels are lightweight and come with utmost perfect fitment, as they are built for this particular application. The customer wanted wheels sized 19×8.5 in the front and 19×8.5 in the rear, perfectly aligned with the demands of the Quattro all-wheel drive system. The wheels are adorned with a Polished Matte Brown finish, working perfectly with the dark gray exterior of the car itself.
The wheels and a coilover suspension system allow the S3 sedan to attain a perfectly dropped stance, making it a lot more appealing than the stock wheel setup. In turn, this gives the owner a lot more prying eyes anywhere they take this beauty. Check out the complete media gallery of this vehicle right below.
