Driven Show 2012 - Sunday, June 10, 2012
The Driven Show was a big success this year with over 300 vehicles on show of a much broader selection of vehicles this year than ever. We had a great spot right at the entrance with our customer's Lamborghini Gallardo Twin Turbo and Nissan 350Z Twin Turbo front and centre.

Our Customers Twin Turbo Lamborghini was a show stopper, it really is a work of art.  It doesn't hurt that it's got 1000 Horsepower either!  It took Best of Show for Modified Exotic.

There was lots of interest in our unusual shop truck, a 1992 VW Vanagon Transporter Double Cab with a custom 1.8T engine swap out of an Audi TT225, complete with the full engine wiring harness and drive-by-wire throttle.  Tuning is Stage 1, courtesy of Eurodyne, and makes this usually snail like truck into a whole different beast.  It took Best in Class, Judges Choice.

This 350Z Greddy Twin Turbo with Haltech, installed and tuned at Calgary Autoworks, took Best in Class.

Our Yellow TT has a 3.2L 24V VR6 with DSG and serves as our track/auto cross car.  It is currently a work in progress with a Sparco Evo 3 racing seat and 5 point harness, BBS "CH" wheels with Potenza RE-11's, 15" K-Sport 8 piston front brakes and 14" 4 piston rears.  Suspension is K-Sports excellent "Road Race" coilover suspension system that is fully ride height adjustable and has 36 positions for damping adjustment.  Eurodyne has provided both Engine and Transmission performance flashes.

All of us at Calgary Autoworks would like to thank the organizers of Driven for putting on a great show!
