Everywhere Jan Rhein goes with his crew from the German KW Sales & Service Point EAH Customs and their current Audi TT, VAG fans do not believe their eyes and real Porsche fans start to adore.
Thanks to the liveree in “Rothmans-optics” the Audi it brings back memories of the glorious Porsche 956 triple victory at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1982. And when fans of Walther Röhrl think about “Rothmans livery”, they remember the days when the exceptional rally driver was still burning over the roads in an Opel Ascona 400.
But when you hear Porsche and Rothmans, most of you might think about the legendary rally times when the Porsche 911 SC RS, Porsche 911 SC 4×4 or the spectacular rally Porsche 959 raced over sand, gravel and asphalt! But not only racing cars of Opel and Porsche drove in motor sport officially under the “Rothmans Racing”-flag, but this is a completely different story…
And just like Jan Rhein, we now also do not considerate about purists that think the Rothmans-body dress on an Audi TT is a sacrilege. First it simply looks really great and on the other hand, Audi and Porsche are anyways a part of the VAG family. Despite the branding of a British tobacco company, Non smoking will surely not get a smoker’s cough, finally the Audi is not a smoking TDI either, but a 230-hp strong 2.0 TSi quattro.
But not only due to the body foiling, the EAH Customs TT looks just awesome. According clothes make the man – in this case suspensions and wheels make cars. The three-part Super+ rims in 8,5 x 20 inches ET40 with their Hankook S1 Evo tires in 225/30-20 with their white-painted stars are simply an eye-catcher!
To make sure that the rims still fit under the wheel arches through the slammed ultra low setup the series fenders were replaced by fiberglass replacement fenders from Mücke. For the braking system, EAH Customs helped themselves classically in the Audi stock: At the front, the complete Audi R8 brake system was used, at the rear, the Audi RS7 brake discs were retrofitted.
If you are looking for a KW coilover kit for your Audi TT, we have a huge selection. The KW coilover suspension Variant 1 offers with its preconfigured KW damper setup an optimized balance of sportiness and everyday practicality.
Those of you who want to get more than just a lowering for the Audi TT will get with the KW coilover suspension Variant 2 the opportunity to further adjust the dampers to your individual driving demand.
The perfect combination of more driving dynamics, every-day practicality and setting options are offered by the KW coilovers Variant 3.
In addition to a continuous lowering also a separate compression and rebound adjustment is possible with the Variant 3 coilover kit.
On the picture above, you can see yourself how a current Audi TT with 20 inch BBS RX-R rims without modified fenders and a KW coilover suspension appears.
For the sporty Rothmans racing appearance of the TT a Heigo Clubsport cage is also installed.
The EAH Customs TT is what people talk about in the German car sceneand it is on tour right now. No matter if at the Wörthersee, the XS Carnight in Berlin or wherever the TT is on the way, it is an eye catcher.
Jan would like to thank all the photographers who offered him the picture material. We would also like to say thank you and of course we have set a link to your Facebook pages.
