    They're based on the Nuvolari concept (A5 precursor) wheels, not those A1s. Reps, obviously.

    I really like the wheels mate.
    I personally would have done the front bumper first though :-/

    Think the front end conversion will round it off nicely mate.

    I meant your wheels are Nuvolari reps, I know the A1s are genuine.
