CORONA, Calif., March 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- West Coast Customs (WCC) premieres their new show on Discovery's HD Theater, Inside West Coast Customs, March 27, 2011, at 9:00 p.m. EDT. Inside West Coast Customs is the next exciting show featuring WCC's outrageous builds. WCC is unveiling their latest creation, the TRON AUDI. The TRON AUDI is the creation of Ryan Friedlinghaus, owner and CEO of West Coast Customs, and Noel Lee of Monster Cable. WCC took a $100,000 Audi R8 and turned it into a futuristic TRON-inspired chrome Audi.
"Monster Cable approached me with a vision for a car based off of their new line of products that they created with Daft Punk for the TRON movie," said Friedlinghaus. "To take this car to the next level, we gave it a full chromed paint job — the first in North America to be done. To give this car the full high-tech TRON look, we installed programmable LEDs throughout the whole car. We placed them behind the grilles, along the rockers and in the air intakes at back. To make the car appear to be floating, we took Polycast and made customized see-through wheels lit up by more LEDs. Finishing off the TRON feel, we made the seats look like the TRON suits, with sewn-in light panels in the black leather seats. For the audio, we added a three-sub speaker box that also lights up with the rest of the car."
Friedlinghaus and his shop have been doing exclusive custom builds for the MTV show Pimp my Ride, TLC's Street Customs, Street Customs Berlin and now also on his new show on Discovery's HD Theater, Inside West Coast Customs. Friedlinghaus and his crew are world-renowned for their extreme vehicles, outrageous features and unique designs.
Check out Inside West Coast Customs, Sunday at 9:00 p.m. EDT on Discovery Channel's HD Theater, and reruns on Fridays at 11:00 a.m. EDT on Discovery Channel.
