Blue Streak | Evans’ Laid R

Evan is one of those guys who lets his car do the talking. He’s super quiet but always seems deep in thought. Maybe on dinner, maybe on work, maybe on what wheels he wants next. Whatever it is, his mind has certainly led him in the right direction with his R. This car is one of those crowd pleaser types. You can bring it to a meet and get love from enthusiasts, or park it in the city and get looks and admiration from all. The blue and gold combo is one that isn’t supposed to work but does, and damn well! It took two shoots to compile the following set but thanks to Evans patience, Eric Banash and I got it done! Check Evan out on IG at @dutchmastr9.

Banash_150430-8777-EditI still dont understand how people manage this type of lip to fender accuracy. Its mind boggling.

Banash_150430-8804-Edit The gold Rotiform IND wheels set Evan’s R off perfectly. The contrast of color is spot on and pops in any light. Banash_150430-8839-Edit-Edit


Evan’s R looks great but its also packing some power to back up those looks. An ARP Stage 2 tune paired with a few 42 Draft Designs Parts put the R around 330 WHP; perfect for daily use. Banash_150430-8932-Edit-Edit Banash_150430-8955-EditShout out to the security guard who let us drive the R onto this sketchy old dock in Cambridge for this shot.



The Volkswagen community have been pioneers of many unique styles and modifications throughout the years and Evan’s personal take on VW’s iconic R combines those styles for one clean, yet aggressive that everyone can respect.
