The winner of the 2017 Miss Tuning Contest has been named. Vanessa Schmitt was crowned during the final selection round on May 1st. After four suspenseful days of competition, the 21-year-old from Bruchsal, Germany, managed to prevail over 11 other contestants. An exciting year of jet-setting with lots of VIP events now lies ahead. The highlight will no doubt be the production of the 2017 Miss Tuning Calendar. Vanessa will also get to put the pedal to the metal, as she will also have her own tuned Nissan Micra for her year-long reign.
“I really didn’t expect the victory. I had another favorite to win. When they announced the winner, I could hardly believe it. I was just shaking all over,” explained the freshly crowned Miss Tuning 2017, with tears welling in her eyes. A teacher in training, Vanessa loves to spend her free time with sports and motocross. She is particularly looking forward to the Nissan Micra that will be hers while serving as Miss Tuning 2017. Vanessa’s favorite part of the four-day tuning event was the team spirit of the finalists and the support they received from model coach Luca.
A life in the spotlight now awaits the new Queen of Tuning. For the next twelve months, she will be the figure head of Tuning World Bodensee. In addition to her calendar shoot in romantic Pescara, Italy, with celebrity and Playboy photographer Andreas Reiter, Vanessa will take part in the Joker Trophy, a road trip to Europe’s metropolises. Also on her itinerary will be autograph sessions, photo shoots and appearances at motorsport events. Second-place contestant Viktoria Fischer, 23, from Schwabmünchen, and third-place contestant Kerstin Sturm, 26, from Leiblfing, did not come away empty-handed. Both received spending money for their next shopping trips.
