Concept wheels from tuning company fifteen52 wear upsized all-terrain tires, new H&R springs raise the Atlas by 1.5 inches and the Volkswagen Atlas gets some extra visual punch from a new body kit by Air Design.

Also on the roof is an aftermarket rack, the Front Runner Slim Line II, which adds even more storage space.

The concept was the brainchild of Alex Earle, exterior design manager at the Volkswagen Design Center in California, who the company says is an "avid cyclist."
