Niklas Frisk, I’m from Sweden, I live on a small Island called Alnö.
I currently work for an American company - Indian Motorcycle. My position is a marketing Manager for Scandinavia. I own a lot of cars however, my daily driver is a Mercedes E250 CDI 4 Matic, I actually drove a Chevrolet Tahoe before but this car came over me and I had to buy it, it’s really a good car.
What got me into the car scene? Good question. I have always been in the motor scene since I was a kid. I love engines, cars, bikes and Snowmobiles, everything that runs on petrol but, building custom cars came a little later in my life, I study as a car mechanic In school and repairing cars have been a big part of my life! Indeed, I grew up in a family which involved petrol heads. My dad loved cars and there were always nice cars around our home.
What makes my car unique and stand out from the crowd? That is a good question. I guess for me the inspiration was the fact that Audi never provided a special version of this model. As a customer you could not get an upgrade as for example Shelby provided for Ford models, so I always thought about that as an idea for my build. If you walked into an Audi dealer in 1972 and said you wanted that special Coupe S GT package and you had to pay to get some extras and got what you wanted, I think perhaps the GT package idea is something that makes this car special.
There are so many things that have been done to this car, there are around 150 GT package options, so it would be a long article if I were to write about all the things to avoid but, that's part of the game when you are restoring and customizing cars! Try to solve things along the way. It is always fun to try to resolve things as they come, but yes there has been a lot.
The Audi is not an import, in fact, it sold in Sweden in 1972! I would absolutely recommend buying this car, it's a collector’s model, I bought it 30 years ago, and it was really hard to find a good example back then, From stock, it was pulling 115hp however, now it is pulling a healthy 145hp

Some of the professionals involved with the work undertaken:
- Metal Master, Dan Johansson , Degerfors
