Description This is one of the finest examples of a custom Beetle in the world. It is the true meaning of one-of-a-kind. There are hundreds on man hours invested in the creation of this car. The subtle hand fabricated parts are extensive. This VW is powered by a 2007cc motor. The dual Dellorto 36 carburetors are an indicator of the no expense spared build. The highly detailed engine compartment is a show stopper on its own. When you combine the detail of the front storage compartment with the matching interior it is obvious that it was built as a labor of love and style. Most of the custom parts on this car were the result of detailed design efforts that were thought out before the build was started. Many hours went into the custom hand formed steel work before the two-tone black paint was applied. The headlights and tail lights were relocated lower in the fenders to give the car a lower look. The custom driving light was carved into the front bumper to help with the flow of lowness. The custom made air bag system was designed so nothing rubs even when it is at its lowest. Even the header pipe was custom made not to be seen but to be heard. It sound like no other Beetle with its deep race inspired sound.
