Sleeper Volkswagen Beetle on Porsche Fuchs alloys!!

sleeper volkswagen beetle1Sleeper Volkswagen Beetle on Porsche Fuchs alloys!! David Partington’s Beetle is anything but ordinary. When you look at it, the first thing you’ll notice is that the paint work looks superb. It is bright and very red with a nice deep hue to it. Then there is the shiny chrome. And then there are the Porsche Fuchs alloys. The owner did an impeccable job on this car and he paid a lot of attention to detail.

The narrowing of the front axle combined with a lowered suspension and the large rear tires give it a hint of hot rod. But it is just a hint. All the suspension work gives the car a very purposeful stance with a hint of aggression. The 2L engine has the traditional boxer noise but the note is much deeper. You can tell its packing more power. It is a very rapid car and goes through the gears in its original four speed manual box with speed and aggression. The rebored block, higher compression heads, up-rated crank and the twin 40 Weber carbs are all upgrades that have transformed the car. Much more than the old supercharger that was originally fitted to its old 1500 engine. David mentioned during filming that while the supercharger was good on the open road, it made the car very hard to drive around town. Check out this cool sleeper Volkswagen Beetle!
