Modified to be a lot of fun on the road and stand out at shows, this Beetle, has a 2.2-litre Subaru EJ22 engine (non-turbo), finished in stealth-like gunmetal metallic paint with a satin black roof and an interior by renowned Volkswagen trimmer Bernard Newbury.
It’s fast. Porsche levels of fast, but uses one of the strongest and high-revving engines out there, a swap that was carefully considered and carried out in 2014 at a cost of over £8,000 by notorious VW converters TSR Engine Conversions in Suffolk using a low mileage (34,000 mile) donor engine.
We have an extensive service folder that accompanies the car detailing both its life as a standard Beetle from the 80s onwards and also detailing the all of the body work and paint job, interior retrim and engine conversion in more recent years (between 2012 - date). There are dozens of MOT certificates etc.
Ready to go and wanting for nothing, it’s a great and honest example of a usable show car that’s as at home parked up in a field of show winners as it is hustling around a B-road.
Viewing by appointment only at our West London showroom.
