Last week we debuted our Beetle Turbo Project we’re building for SEMA, with highlights of what the car would look like. Today, we’re pulling the covers off our rendering to show you exactly what we are bringing to the Vegas Strip.

The car is centered on the concept of a beach battle-cruiser. Capable of getting you to the beach with plenty of power, and providing passengers with everything they need to enjoy their day in the surf.

We’ve teamed up with several respected industry partners for this special project and have put in countless hours to get the car ready for the Vegas stage.

Noted tuning house, Revo Technik, equipped the car with its new big turbo and software upgrade as well as an intake and exhaust system. Achieving an estimated 400hp, it will certainly require the remote-reservoir Revo suspension we also added.

FMS Automotive has been working overtime to develop our unique body kit designed. They have also been hard at work fabricating the car’s unique deployable shower system (stay tuned for more information).

Fuchs Performance produced some custom 19” wheels on its CNC machines. They will be wrapped in Continental Extreme Contact DW tires. The interior has a quality look and feel thanks largely to Katzkin Leathers. They developed a custom upgrade kit with midnight black outers with military green suede inners, with top stitch for rugged military appeal.

If you want to check out our project in the flesh, be sure to drop by the FMS Automotive booth inside the Las Vegas Convention Center on October 30- November 2.

Many enthusiasts believed the hatch to be “less STI”, so the Subie faithful were delighted once the news of a lower, wider and meaner sedan would be returning. Sexy features like a quad exhaust,

Aside from what most automotive journalists think, the DMC-12 DeLorean was one of the dopest cars ever made. Of course, that isn’t due to its 130hp fuel injected V6 engine or suspect build quality, but for its iconic role in the Back to the Future Trilogy and also for its unforgettable, boxy design, brushed stainless

It wasn’t the all-too-familiar Initial D series, nor was it the almost natural association with drifting that pulled Lester Donis’s attention to his two-toned 1986 Toyota Corolla GTS. It also wasn’t a feature story or any sort of social media influence that nudged him toward the iconic hatchback. Interestingly enough, his childhood encounter with a

LOOKING BACK AT THE SUPER STREET COROLLA The new 2021 Toyota Corolla is an entry-level car that we’ve had a ton of experience with as we built a 2019 hatchback two years ago. With the help of our friends at Auto Tuned and a rendering by Jon Sibal, we transformed our little XSE into a
