The Audi RS4 Avant, to Audi enthusiasts in the USA, is one of the most desirable cars Audi has ever made, no matter the generation. For years, we’ve been taunted by Audi’s RennSport offerings in other countries and regions, but the RS4 Avant (wagon) has never been officially offered in the states, despite much demand. So when you really want something that you can’t have, the only option left is to make it, right? I mean, a guy built a Lamborghini Countach in his basement, so why wouldn’t a bodyshop be able to build an RS4? Stephan Prezzi‘s Audi RS4 Avant on Vossen VLE-1 limited-edition wheels is a prime example of such a feat!
De’ Caudella’s, a shop co-owned by Stephan Prezzi, is responsible for importing the necessary parts to complete the aesthetic transformation, including both bumpers, rear quarters, doors, and front fenders. With a lot of patience and an enormous amount of skill, Stephan and Clay grafted each panel on before respraying the car in Audi’s Merlin Purple.
Under those widened arches sit our limited-edition VLE-1 wheel, in 20×10.5″ sizing on all four corners, tucked nicely with the help of air suspension.
Every time we see another aggressive car sporting the VLE-1 we can’t help but overcome with smiles. And while Prezzi’s RS4 is still a station wagon, it’s a great example of the way a set of wheels can really change the dynamic of a car’s look.
