Volkswagen Dasher Turbo B1

This is another one of those “what if” photoshop quickies. What if somebody would take a USDM Volkswagen Dasher 2-door sedan (Passat in other markets) and modify it? Slap on a set of overfenders, mount a set of coilovers and wheels in a size that has never been intended to be used on a front wheel drive car. Replace the anemic original engine with a 1.8T with a bigger turbo setup and build an exhaust with motorsport components. Once finished you should have a pretty fairly decent, water-cooled, Volkswagen. I suppose it’s safe to wager a bet that it would be the only such vehicle at any VW meet. Is there anyone crazy enough to tackle this build and take it to the Wörthersee next year?

Volkswagen Santana Mk1

Sometimes a random memory sparks something. In this case I remembered, for some reason or another, that my French teacher once used to drive a very un-cool dark blue Volkswagen Santana Mk1. I searched the web for a suitable picture to use as a base – and got carried away… again.

This project evolved to be a custom Santana which a surfer might drive. The body is essentially stock, but a roof-rack with a surfboard has been added. The car was then lowered over a set of vintage Corvette wheels with tires sporting red stripes. A couple of surf-related stickers, a few details here and there and it was finished. Point proven, even a VW Santana has potential to look (somewhat) cool. 😉

Volkswagen T1 VitaCrete Dragster

The Volkswagen T1 ViteCrete Dragster is a five minute chop, just for fun. Inspired by the recent visit to the Nitrolymp’x and the dump truck I created yesterday.

Volkswagen T3 Syncro Milka | photoshop chop by Sebastian Motsch (2012)

Volkswagen T3 syncro Milka

The Volkswagen T3 is on the best way to become a classic car icon, like all the previous VW transporters. The base model has been modified into a 4×4 version, called syncro. It still looked a little uninspired, so I decided to change the color to something more eye-catching. The Milka theme came to mind and has been realized. The tarp looks like it has been carried over from a well-used truck, contrasting with the freshly painted sheetmetal.

Volkswagen New Beetle BAJA Concept

Alongside the Mustang BAJA concept, I worked on a BAJA-style vehicle based on the Volkswagen New Beetle. This vehicle was not only inspired by BAJA racers, but also by the beach buggies based on vintage Beetle chassis. I used the underpinnings from the Hummer HX concept car and modified it to fit under the New Beetle body. It’s not as a agressive as the Mustang BAJA I posted last week, but then – have you ever seen an agressive looking New Beetle? That’s downright impossible, lol.

Volkswagen New Beetle CGT Concept

After a couple of years fiddling around with this picture, I decided to call it a day and get done with it. The picture is by no means perfect, but you get the idea. The inspiration was a discussion among friends about the addition of Porsche parts to classic Beetles. Why shouldn’t somebody try this with the New Beetle? This would, of course, be limited to body parts mostly, as the layout of the drivetrain is quite different these days. So I set to work and tried to fit the body panels from the Porsche Carrera GT to the New Beetle. It did look horrible, to be honest. So, a top chop was in order to get the proportions at least halfway right. I’m not 100% satisfied with the result, but decided to post it here anyways. So what are your thoughts on that conversion? Please leave feedback below, thank you.

Volkswagen Jetta Mk2 GTI | photoshop chop by Sebastian Motsch (2011)

Volkswagen Jetta Mk2 MTM

In 2011 you can still buy a Volkswagen Jetta Mk2 in China. That’s almost 30 years after the first Mk2 Jetta has been sold in Europe 1984. Modernized with all the current VW styling cues, the latest facelift has transformed the Jetta Mk2 into a handsome car. Quite nice, isn’t it? Yes, you might say, but definitely lacking power. Well, the standard engine has been replaced with the 2.o liter engine of the Mk6 Golf GTI. In order to make the car more attractive and sportier looking, I added a redesigned front bumper, side skirts and rear bumper. The car has been lowered and a set of MTM alloy wheels have been installed. Do you also think the crowds at the 2012 Wörthersee festival would love it? Write a comment and let us know.

Volkswagen Fox | photoshop chop by Sebastian Motsch (2011)

Volkswagen Fox with deep dish steelies

This Volkswagen is called Fox in the United States and Gol in Brazil, where it was built. I kept this one very simple – dropped over oldschool steel wheels with whitewall tires. Actually, this was just a quickie, done in roughly an hour on a rainy sunday afternoon.

Volkswagen TL | photoshop chop by Sebastian Motsch (2010)

Volkswagen TL Custom with ATS wheels

This is what my friend Gerd’s Volkswagen TL could look like. Some quick modifications in photoshop show the potential the car has. Fans of stock TLs don’t need to worry, though – the car is not going to be modified in real life.
