VW built this very special one-off Golf GTI for the 2017 Wörthersee, Austria car show. The car not only rocks a 404 hp engine under the hood, but has a 12 kW motor out back, making it the first ever all-wheel drive hybrid of its family. The car can operate in FWD, RWD or AWD modes.
LEGO’s 1100+ piece replica of the classic bug is the perfect kit for LEGO and car buffs alike. The expert-level model has features like an opening hood and trunk, tiltable seats, a roof rack with surfboard and cooler, and even a teensy 4-cylinder engine in back. Drops 8/16 for $100.
Carfection briefly touched on the origins of the Beetle successor’s prodigious variant, before test driving each of its seven generations and deciding which one they like best. Is it the wildly popular Mk II, the cutting edge Mk VII or perhaps the original? We prefer this GTI.
Mighty Car Mods and their friends attempt to mod a 1974 Volkswagen Beetle L and give it 10 times its measly ~30hp with the help of a 2.5L turbocharged engine, while keeping its classic look. Skip to 34:10 for the result, including a drag race with the mighty Porsche 911 Carrera.
Keep your drinks on ice in the coolest cooler we’ve seen in a while. This miniature replica of the classic Volkswagen camper van even has rubber wheels so you can pull it around. And while it’s expensive, it’s still way cheaper than the real thing. And requires fewer oil changes.
