TWB: Summer can come
Once again, the Tuning World Bodensee managed to attract as many visitors as never before, and Dotz turned quite a few heads owing to the DD1 and Dotz Girl Maria.
Apart from having a new design this year’s Dotz booth was also the first attention-getter for trade show visitors as Dotz presented its rims straight in the foyer. Needless to say, Maria, our Dotz Girl 2017, proved an additional eye catcher.
Despite competition from Girls and rims the DD1 was the ultimate highlight at the Dotz booth, with the BMW on Dotz SP5 stopping off at the Tuning World Bodensee during its 2017 tour.
And the booth served even more eye candy by presenting air brusher Peter Riedel’s notorious bodypainting skills.
As always, the drift show at the outside area of the Friedrichshafen trade show grounds was well-attended and often photographed.
Other than that, the love of individualising cars was the major focus at the traditional season kick-off trade show in Friedrichshafen (the picture shows a VW Tiguan with a Dotz Revvo)
109,200 visitors (in 2016: 103,800) marveled at this year’s offers at the Tuning World Bodensee, such as the Seat Ibiza on Dotz Fast 7 gull-winged.
203 exhibitors from the tuning industry and retail presented a wide range of cars, chassis, rims, tyres and accessories.
In total, 1,062 cars were presented at the trade show. 203 exhibitors made their way to Lake Constance while visitors also had the chance to visit one of the 154 club booths.
“The vibe in the halls was great. Both commercial exhibitors and clubs and private car owners were happy that the event went so smooth. In Friedrichshafen, tuning is a way of life,” points out project leader Dirk Kreidenweiß.
In addition to its own booth, Dotz was present in multiple ways: such as, for example, on this BMW 3 Series on Mugello dark.
Apart from classics such as the Audi Quattro and...
... Japanese precious metals such as the Nissan Silvia...
... visitors were also treated to a live tuning show: star tuner Akira Nakai modified a Porsche in the Rauh-Welt Begriff (RWB) style. For two days, the Japanese tuner sawed and screwed about PS-Profi’s Sidney Hoffmann’s Porsche.
The European Tuning Showdown was yet another highlight at the TWB.
At the Dotz-sponsored event 64 nominated cars competed against each other. The audience was just as thrilled as...
... Dotz Girl Maria.
This year’s tuning world Champions League was hotly contested – along with U.S. chrome jewels and...
... extremely modified German classics, this time...
... a Mini stood out. The Mini Cooper with a hot rod look bagged the first prize at the ETS. The “suicide doors” in the traditional classic car style and the 20-inch spokes wheels protruding far from the chassis created a look as we know it from cars in the 1920s to 1940s. The winning car’s roof was chopped with lowered car pillars and adjusted panes.
The winner of the European Tuning Showdown 2017 and receiver of a might trophy: Italian Mirko Tacchi.
