Worthersee 2017

It’s amazing how much anticipation there is leading up to our annual Wörthersee trip, but then it’s over in a flash and before anyone realizes it months have passed. Add that to the pace of the Vossen Forged factory and the new projects that are constantly popping up and it’s a wonder that anything gets done around here! But this Wörthersee was different—it was as if there were more pieces involved—and that’s where the Vossen Forged Modular Wheel Program comes into play.

Wörthersee has always been a bit of a testing ground for new wheel designs and concepts and 2017 was no different, with a wide range of cars sporting our new three-piece forged wheels. In addition to the modular prototypes that were on display, a few new forged monoblocks were out too, such as the all-new LC2 Series, as seen on a wildly-liveried Passat Variant.

After making the long trek from Miami to Liechtenstein, then from Liechtenstein to Velden am Wörthersee, it was great to see old friends from far away places and take in the towns around the lake, such as Velden, Faak am See and Reifnitz.

Faak am See was the place to be on Sunday for the Vossen Europe Owners Meet, where cars from all over Europe were on display for the fans and passersby to see, and the fine people of How Deep ( were kind enough to collaborate with Vossen for a special edition Wörthersee shirt!

Many thanks to all of the owners and enthusiasts that helped make Wörthersee 2017 possible for us. We photographed a ton of cars and will be uploading them throughout the next couple days, and can’t wait to see everyone next year!
