Beautiful vistas with Miss Tuning Vanessa

October 10, 2019 | Friedrichshafen, Germany - Whether posing next to a dark green Audi R8, in front of a rare RWB Porsche or beside a modified Jeep, the reigning Miss Tuning, Vanessa Knauf, was recently photographed with a collection of very special and powerful vehicles. The occasion was the 18th Miss Tuning calendar shoot and the location was beautiful Austria. The Alpine republic offers a diverse array of scenic landscapes – from Lake Neusiedl to the mountainous Tyrol to the picturesque provincial capital of Linz. All of this and more served as the backdrop for the Tuning Queen and the automotive beauties of her realm. “We shot at some incredible locations with a lot of really awesome cars,” reports Vanessa. Fans get to enjoy admiring some highly refined automotive specimens decked out in trendy wheels and rims, predominantly from German manufacturers such as BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Audi, VW and Porsche. The twenty-three-year-old was photographed by star Playboy photographer Andreas Reiter. Limited to just 1500 copies, the exclusive calendar is available from October 10, 2019, for 25 euros, including shipping. The order form, as well as additional photos and a making-of video are available at www.tuningworldbodensee.de.

Here are each of the photos featured in the 2020 Miss Tuning Calendar:


“Land of mountains, land by the river, land of fields, land of cathedrals...” Austria’s national anthem aptly describes the country’s diverse scenery.
