I'm gonna tear apart my 70 VW this spring and Still want to do some shaping and build my own body for it... I want a roadster though. But I might consider a Full body like this as well. Great Design.

I see it now.

Leg room would be a serious problem.

if you built it like that front engined truck then there'd be no issues. But it'd be alot of metal sculpting involved.

Leg room shouldn't be too bad. The placement of the steering wheel looks like the driver sits in the back seat. As for a rear tire change, the whole body tips up. A brilliant drawing anyway you look at it.

No need for the Dual engines... Just the body would be the part to build by. Could do a V8 or just about any other front engine and get the leg room... Could power by Hyabusa or something smaller.

Hi Everyone

Looks super fast...would not wanna try to drive in traffic or try to back it up...

Bonneville Salt flats would be my choice...foot flat on the floor....and hold it there...:)

I get all giddy just thinking about driving that fast...

I really don't get why the front fenders are gone. It would look better with front fenders.

Either way very cool.

Also in my opinion it would look much better with streamlined full frontfenders too..

I guess he's sucked in by the whole "Volkrods have to be fenderless" look.

That's so 2003

Yeah. Check out the reflections and shadows. For some of us, okay, me for instance, it would take less time to build it than draw it with that level of detail..

What is this "3D rendering" of which you speak. You're talking to someone who still uses a non-photo blue or 4b pencil, and a set of KOH-I-NOR Rapidograph pens.
