Volkswagen Concept: Big Al

Need a little bit more room for your Tommy Guns?

This stretched Volkswagen Concept is based on the Rometsch 4-door. An updated Beetle body accommodates the full red leather interior worthy of Capone. Bulletproof Radials, 18 Inch Der Steiner Rad Alloys smooth out the ride through dangerous streets. An equally bullet-proof, dual Weber 48 IDA-equipped, Porsche 914 2.4 liter engine and Gene Berg 5-speed installed via a custom flywheel provides enough juice to outrun the cops. Big Al is not afraid to boogie.

Driving through Ayala Avenue, the deep House of color, Cherry Black paint glistens from the fresh detailing, new HiD headlight and LED tail light conversions brighten the way, and four-wheel disc brakes and Koni shocks firm up the handling.

The shorter front and additional rear doors open butterfly style, revealing the red-hot leather Recaro interior. Red leather door panels and blood red German wool carpeting are perfect complements to the maraschino cherry exterior.

The split dashboard is home to classic white-face VDO gauges and updated with a contemporary sound system. A Pioneer AVIC-D1 In-Dash Mobile Nav head unit, makes sure that Big Al doesn’t get lost on the way to the clubs. Rockford Fosgate 3Sixty DSP pumps Punch subs, and the Audiobahn A12005DN amplifier keep the beat thumpin’.

The early split-window roll-up ragtop is restored and opens to spectacular views of the moon and stars. Big Al shows them how it’s done.

Top of the World, Ma!
