Magnaflow brought us on board to make their rendition of #ProjectBlueCopper a reality, with the goal of color matching trim/emblems/accents/decals to the wheels. The finished product speaks for itself, a unique and stunning representation of European Design with some loud yet classy accents to make it really stand out. This Audi A5 also features parts from Rotiform, APR Performance, Nitto, K&N, BBI Motorsports, and KW Suspension.
We also took on the Magnaflow Avalanche and gave it a more aggressive appearance by adding matte black to the full roof, hood, and center front bumper. We did satin pearl white decals to give it a unique and elegant look.
Press Release for PROJECT BLUE COPPER:
MagnaFlow and the European Influence at SEMA 2013
MagnaFlow has always built automotive technology with a worldclass dedication to quality, power and sound. This is as true for highend European performance brands as it is for American muscle, rugged trucks, sport compacts and more. The stunning #ProjectBlueCopper that will be featured in this year’s MagnaFlow SEMA booth #23543, highlights MagnaFlow’s commitment to the European market. This 2013 Audi A5 Quattro B8.5 was designed for 2 purposes, to be a gorgeous show car and a daily driver. In order to achieve the deep, throaty sound while maintaining a clean Euro feel, we went with a 2.5” Cat-Back Performance Exhaust System and custom MagnaFlow dual split rear exit tips. To maximize the quality of the entire exhaust system, we also swapped the stock catalytic converters for MagnaFlow Direct Fit Catalytic Converters. Since it needed to drive as good as it looked, we added a K&N air intake system, KW Suspension V1 Coil Over system, SPC Performance Front Upper Control Arms, a BBI Autosport setup, and corner balance. Finally, to complete the show look, we finished the build with APR Performance Carbon Fiber Splitter, Side Rockers and Rear Deck Lid Spoiler, SD Wrap Copper trim, an Audi RS5 Singleframe Mesh Grille and an Audi A5 to S5 Rear Lower Valance. No show car is complete without new shoes, so we replaced the stock wheels and tires with Rotiform’s 20 x 10 SNA wheels and Nitto’s Invo 285/25ZR20 tires.
With over 30 years of excellence in the automotive aftermarket industry, it’s no surprise that so many SEMA builders turn to MagnaFlow to enhance the quality, power and sound of their builds. The #ProjectBlueCopper Audi isn’t the only gorgeous European joining the MagnaFlow team at SEMA. In addition to the 135+ vehicles running MagnaFlow products on display throughout the show, you will find over a dozen show-worthy European builds that will certainly take your breath away!
