Icing Sugar – Yunus Sweet Candy MK6 GTi

At Capestance we are always trying to bring you cars that are fresh on the scene, cars that we very seldom see at hookups or events. I must admit, I myself haven’t seen this MK6 Gti to the day the shoot was scheduled. We’ve seen random camera phone snaps and could acknowledge that this is a clean quality MK6, but pictures do this car no justice.

Yunus followed a simple recipe with his Gti. The “less is more” concept. Keeping it simple with subtle touches that enhance the character of the over manufactured MK6 Gti that we know and admire.

Yunus not only enhanced its appearance, but its soul as well. Giving it a software upgrade, fitting a down pipe, induction and exhaust.

I could speak about the 595 (the cars street name) and not get bord, but let me shut my trap and enjoy the pics that follow!

Towards the front, Yunus added a Reiger lip and de-badged the grill giving it more of 
an aggressive look. 

Walking slowly around it, just looking at how well it all
fit together. The 19inch HRE wheels wrapped in fresh low profile 225/25/19 Yokohama S Drives. 
The H&R lowering kit closing the gap between the wheel and arches. 

Carbon fibre rear wing sprayed white. 
Which I personally think looks much better color coded on this car.

A little birdy told us he approves…
