Right now I am sitter here on a train from Göteborg to Stockholm after some seriously long 36 hours.
It all started yesterday at 10am yesterday when we drove out to Stertman to work on the camo layout on the cars. Then we had a "wrong code" in one of the dampers and as we were not able to fix that we had to find a new damper for an Audi R8 V10 in about 2 hours. An hour and a half later Audi Smista had hocked us up (took one of one of their new cars) and we had a new one on the way. This threw our time schedule over board and we had to work all night with this, even with some great help from the Autostripe guys it still took us way longer then expected and I left the garage at 7 this morning. Slept for an hour before we met up with Top Gear for a cover story shoot. Finished with that at 13. 00 so me and Bakke jumped in the cars and drove south to Göterborg as we were shipping the cars from there, made it there with a margin of 5 minutes, jumped back in a cab and made it to the train station with 2 mins to spare.
Needless to say I am beyond dead but I am so happy that all is in order with the cars and they are on their way to New York, but most of all I am so super mega stoked that the R8 is finally done. The super charger totally transformed the car to a whole new kind of monster, its just insane how crazy the car is, the only thing I can compare this to is a Koenigsegg, thats how insane this is! Will get some videos as soon as we get the cars in NY, the sound is stupid! ;-.)
A huge thanks to everyone involved to make the cars come alive!
PPI for a super sick carbon body and a kick ass interior!
STaSIS for all the 800 hp wip lash accelerations!
Autostripe for their 24h work all night service!
Mr Cap Haninge for the 15% crazy dark windows!
Audi Smista for their Sunday damper delivery!
And most of all to Stertman Motorsport who as been beyond helpfull with everything, they have truly done an amazing job and I can easily say that its by far my best tuner experince ever, top notch all the way!
Only 25 more mins to Sthlm and then its time for me to get a ton of sleep! I cant wait, my head is spinning from todays insane accelerations combined with total absence of sleep!
