A.Deniz ÖZBARLI of Alpera Motors has digitally imagined a hardcore version of the iconic Volkswagen Beetle.
The cute Beetle has always fueled the imagination of independent car designers who have rendered the model in a wide variety of specifications, with these latest illustrations depicting a potent version influenced by the 1974 Super Beetle.
The classic lines are still there but with a modern twist on the body which hides a carbon fiber monocoque. Known as the Alpera TULPAR, the hardcore Beetle has been envisioned with a twin-turbo boxer engine pushing out more than 500 bhp (373 kW).
We remind you that Volkswagen recently confirmed an all-new Beetle will be out within the next three years and will ride on the MQB platform. It will have an "emotional design" and will likely spawn hybrid and/or electric derivatives.
