Audi and Mercedes Get ‘The Second Face’

“In order to give back some uniqueness to the individual models, Adolf Koch - who has worked in the field of tuning for 30 years and should be well known to many insiders - has developed an interesting alternative to the standard front guard,” says a company’s statement.
He therefore worked on giving the vehicles (mostly from the main German manufacturers) an individual look, under the slogan “The second face.” Focusing first on Audi and Mercedes brands, AK Car Design launched several grille versions in order to eliminate the confusion.
“With the slogan "the second face", as of now the Swabian is presenting under the label of his new company AK Car-Design with the cooperation of an industrial partner specially styled radiator grill inserts which give every vehicle an individual touch. To begin with AK Car-Design will provide inserts for almost all Audi and Mercedes models,” the statement continued.
According to the company, the most important features of this tuning idea are:
- Individual design
- Special car characteristics
- Fitting without any modification to the vehicle
- Easy mounting back of the original grille; important for leasing cars
The AK-grilles are made from high quality plastic and are available in black or carbon look, but if requested they can be also painted in the car's color. Moreover, for specially demanding customers, AK Car Design offers the grille versions also in real carbon. The price for the individual grille from AK-Car-Design is cheaper than we thought, considering the benefit of an individual design: starts at about 450 euros.
