After seeing years ago Lemansrc beautiful street scorchers I got inspired to build such a kind of street scorching too. But due to many other projects and lack of time the project never started. But after seeing lately a lot of other good looking street scorchers I knew I just had to start this project! After months of building it’s finally finished!
My street scorcher has been build on a M-04 chassis with TL-01 rear suspension arms and long wheel axles in the front and back. This gives the car a perfect wide when using smoothee tires. Also the wheelbase has been stretched with 2mm. I think these smoothee tires gives the car a nice classic overall look. The body is just a stock blitzer beetle with an original monster beetle nosecone. The car has been painted mica blue, finished off with some clear layers. I really love how the color came out! It suits the car very well.
I tried to make this one a bit special by making an interior and fitting an engine in the back. The beetle has now a driver figure with dashboard and rollcage fitted on the chassis. It’s all made from styrene. It was my first time making a roll cage, but I’m really happy with the outcome. There will definitely follow some other cars with rollcage :-)! The beetle is powered by an Abarth engine. I know this is a bit strange, but it looks fantastic!
Overall I’m really pleased with the end result, hope you enjoy this beetle too!
