Welcome to the second issue of 5AT5. This week we have Tracy’s gorgeous R8. It may not seem like it, but Sacramento is host to a lot of nice exotic rides. Tracy’s R8 is just one of the many exotic cars that lay low (literally) in our region.
Driver: Tracy Arnett, 33
Car: 2017 Audi R8
City: Sacramento, CA
Karmecca: What is your favorite past build in the scene?
Tracy: “My favorite past build was David from Imperial Works G35 when he had bagged it and supercharged it. Back then that’s when I had a G35 sedan and everything he did was how I dreamed of building my car.”
Karmecca: What is your favorite current build out there?
Tracy: My favorite current build is Danny P’s Ferrari 458 GT3.
Karmecca: What’s your favorite mod or feature on your car?
Tracy: My favorite mod is always bags because I like to ride low. Speed bumps suck. And the car is already low and having bags makes it more practical.
Karmecca: What’s your dream build?
Tracy: My dream build -what I would love to do is build either a Bugatti or Koenigsegg with bags and everything because nobody has ever done it. That’s something I would love to do.
Karmecca: What are your thoughts on the Sacramento car scene?
Tracy: There’s a lot of heavy hitters out here that are just very low key. If everyone came together we could have a great car scene just like any other major city.
