I have always had a passion for cars because I have always been around them and the scene but my step into the scene really started when a long time friend and owner of the car club that I am in showed me the potential that my newly aquired Audi S5 had. Once I started modding the car the passion grew even more and it was even more exciting to keep taking the car to the next level. Something special about the car is that it is currently 1 of 2 LibertyWalk S5 in all of Canada and the only one with the full complete kit in Canada. Something else that is unique about the car is that I am currently the only person running a 305 tire both front and back which makes the car look that much more aggressive.

Giulio’s verdict: What a way to introduce the first Audi feature on our website! That car, that colour, those exhausts, black roof/door mirrors/that carbon bonnet, those wheels and wrapped up in a LibertyWalk kit……It’s just perfectly executed and exactly how I would do it if I owned a S5. Jose, well done on your build and if you go ahead with the supercharger we’d love to see it. I visited LibertyWalk a little while ago and saw a Lamborghini Murcielago in a similar blue and fell in love with it, such a nice colour….yes, blue is my favourite colour.
