This ridiculously huge Volkswagen Beetle has a V8 engine

Thanks to their small size, city cars have a high degree of maneuverability, allowing them to stand out in the city. But when you move away from the town walls, these cars naturally lose some of their glory as the speed increases. And when faced with much larger vehicles, they also look less impressive.

In California, Scott Tupper and his father decided to do justice to these small cars. They took on one of the most popular cars of all time, the legendary Volkswagen Beetle. The main idea was to make the vehicle bigger, a viable solution in a country where big cars are king.

The duo already had a 1959 Volkswagen Beetle Cabriolet at their disposal, which provided an excellent basis for their work. They began by scanning the entire vehicle before dismantling it entirely. Each part was then enlarged by 40% by computer. Obviously, the traditional flat four was not chosen to move the beast.

Instead, the huge Beetle adopts a typically American engine, a 5.7-litre HEMI V8. The car has also been modernized with centralized door locks, electric windows, power steering and even air conditioning! Everything has been carefully hidden to preserve the original spirit of the Beetle.
