Let me start out by saying this build is not yet complete, but the quality levels are through the roof, and as usual you can expect updates to be posted when it’s further along. For now, though, I’ll think you’ll be as gobsmacked as I was when I first saw the 3D scanning, CAD work, […]

Does anyone build normal retro Audi’s? Or are they all completely bonkers? For a car company that emits a rather subdued tone, churning out understated luxury cars with a few sports models in between, their fan-base sure do like to turn up the wick on their own 4-ringed vehicles. This S1 comes courtesy of Dave […]
Porsche’s seem to be blowing up the internet lately. Between RWB, Singer, and most recently Magnus Walker, there’s been a constant stream Porkas on every auto blog out there for the past few years now. But hey, this is Build Threads, so you know if you see a Porsche here there’s going to be something […]
When you start off your build thread with a picture of a stonking great big turbo, you’re sure to grab peoples attention. The sizable huffer in question belongs to an Audi Quattro that started it’s life as a long-wheelbase model before being stripped to a bare shell, shortened, and built back up into a full-house […]
When it comes to piecing together a build thread there are some people who love it (us!), and some who don’t really care too much about it. A few camera-phone images, some vague descriptions, and maybe, just maybe they’ll maintain enough enthusiasm to keep updating it until their project is finished. But hey, that’s their […]
One very dedicated Swedish builder has been spending the last 3 years creating his own Bentley Speed 8 replica. By taking a 1:18 scale model and having it scanned in 3D, he was able to recreate the body shape in full-size and drape it over a hand fabricated tube-frame chassis. With a 4.2lt Audi V8 […]
MKII Golf, Audi S2 5-cylinder turbo engine, space frame engineering, home built. Keep reading? Thanks to Daniel for submitting.
Mike from Eurowise Inc sent me emailed me the build of their shop car, a classic Audi Coupe GT sitting on some timeless BBS rims. Love that cross-stitched interior, it’s giving me ideas for my own car.
Sorry guys, I know I’ve been down on content lately, it’s a crazy time of year. But don’t worry, I’ve still got heaps of tasty builds lined up, so keep the faith! James, the editor of Car Throttle & owner of Saab Snaab emailed me this crazy Saab 99 build and told me a little […]
I threw this little flyer together for Dom who’s organising the 2010 South East Dub Fest. I thought it came out pretty nice, although I’d love to do a more intricate one for another event when I have more time to spare. Any Melbournians who are interested in the VW/Audi scene should come and check […]
