This 1998 VW Beetle started life as a daily driver with a 2.0 L inline-four. Unfortunately it broke down in a snow storm and left the owner stranded. The car sat for five months until the owner decided to use a supercharged Buick 3.8 L L67 V6 from a Pontiac Bonneville SSEi he had sitting around to build a RWD Bettle.
After cutting the rear floor and trunk out he then cut the floor and subframe out of another Beetle to mount in the back. The subframe is a combination of a Beetle and Pontiac GTP subframe and it bolts in place of the factory rear suspension swing arm. After the engine was in the back the owner soon realized he needed to add weight to the front and figured why not add another identical supercharged Buick 3.8 L V6 to the front.
If that wasn’t unique enough the car also has a right-hand drive swap. The owner hopes to replace the superchargers with turbochargers and has a goal of 900 horsepower total. To follow the progress of the build visit the project’s Facebook page.
