Volkswagen Concept: Vermouth

Volkswagen Concept: Vermouth

Another beach cruiser, this Volkswagen Concept is based on a Type 3 Volkswagen Squareback. Vermouth is Germanic for "worm wood" which provides an interesting theme for this VW.

After straightening out the body, pearl white paint with hot pink metallic flakes added for effect was expertly applied. The side panels were fitted and framed with dark redwood providing terrific contrast to the white body.

Power comes from an 1835, dual Weber 40-fed, motor that offer outstanding performance. Dual quiet packs mellow down the sounds to environmentally correct levels. Michelin radials and 17 inch Flat Four rims are fitted expertly. Porsche trailing arms and brake upgrades allow massive brake upgrades. A custom tuned T3 beam with Koni adjustable shocks, front trailing arms and dropped spindles firm up the front end.

The interior is covered in Cappucchino and Coffee leatherette and brown German weave carpeting.
