"We're quite certain that Audi owners will appreciate the opportunity to personalize their vehicles in exciting and interesting new ways. Our show cars represent the pinnacle of what owners can do with an Audi, and unleash a variety of opportunities for our vendors, as well."

The company will also bring two vehicle projects at the event that is set to take place on November 2-5 in Las Vegas, including an Audi R8 Custom Spyder, a 710-horsepower super car from STaSIS Engineering.
