Very very pretty. These old VW's are not the safest cars, however. I am not sure about this model but the beetles were bad on slippery roads with a rear mounted engine over rear wheel drive. Great for traction, lousy for steering. Coupled with lousy aerodynamics think the VW beetle was measured to have approx 6 kg on its from wheels at 80kmph. I once owned a 67 VW convertible and doing about that (80) I hit some water. VERY scary to aquaplane! The aerodynamics of the...

My point is that if you spread yourself too thin you loose impact. Yahoo is an example that comes to...

The whole process of developing a car is interesting and there are a lot of companies that develop highly specialized vehicles, from utility vehicles to top of the line niche race cars. As the Koreans have proven you can use existing technology and build very good reliable cars using established methods. Nothing new, just tried and tested. Or you can get interesting and go the Lotus way as when they developed the Lotus Elise (1996?). The car's frame was made from aluminum...
