1970 Volkswagen Speedster $66,995
Sleek, lightweight, and an absolute ton of fun - this is a beautifully-built Speedster replica that was made for premium performance. So check out the detailed build that will get you excited to see everything from the classic racing seats to the modern four-wheel disc brakes.
This Speedster replica announces it's something special the moment it comes into view. The distinctly deep green has a terrific modern sleekness. The fiberglass body is an almost seamless design. The front end is uncluttered by accessories and has a color-matched bumper. So it shows off the kind of aerodynamics that were a priority for a company like Porsche. You can just see how the wind will dance around the headlights - either up the famously low hood or around the new wide fender flares. And the sunlight just seems to love to dance around the curves of the rear. Plus, because the body is so free from trim, the brightwork stands out even more on places like the windshield frame, side mirrors, rear grille, and bezels for the crystal clear headlights. But your favorite shine will likely be from those awesomely wide 19-inch Rotiform three-piece wheels where the golden glow looks great against all that green.
While this is meant for open-top motoring, we can't help but love how the tan folding roof and side curtails help emphasize the low and sporty design of the car. But when you take it down, you reveal an even more impressive part of this sports car. These low-back buckets remind us of true Speedster units, and they have a premium saddle leatherette presentation that matches the doors, dash, and shift boot. They took the time to give this plenty of true Porsche style, including the weave of the carpeting, dash grab handle, and luminescent-style gauges. Your hands will love the classic wood and chrome steering wheel, and you utilize the accelerator and shifter to dial-in that perfect open road soundtrack from the air-cooled engine. Plus, this has a proper heater, so you can enjoy open-top motoring even at the break of dawn.
The motor is exactly what you want in a sports car like this. The hardy VW-based flat-four has a twin set of dual EMPI HPMX 44 carburetors and an A1 performance exhaust. It warms up to be quite a fun powerhouse, and you have complete control over the power thanks to the hardy four-speed manual transmission. As you look underneath, you can see the strong and clean VW pan was the base for a proper sports suspension. This includes a Coolrydes Customs tubular A-arm independent front end, upgraded tubular arm rear with sway bar, adjustable shocks, Wilwood four-wheel disc brakes, and grippy Michelin Pilot Sport tires.
Speedy looks and speedy components come together on a bold and sleek Speedster replica. These are the kind of builds that take years to get right, but you get to skip all that and go straight to the fun. But it's only possible if you call today!
