Customization experts Memminger is known for its restorations of the Volkswagen Beetle, having made them since the mid-‘90s. Now the company has decided to show what it’d do if it were to create its own Roadster, named the 2.7 after the liter size of the air-cooled boxer engine. Providing 210 horsepower, it would use a 5-speed gearbox and have custom bodywork that sits on a welded tubular steel frame that’s visible from inside the car.

The rest of the interior sees tartan-lined racing seats while the wheels use disc brakes borrowed from the 911, alongside lightweight 18-inch alloy wheels. The car is still a concept at this point, but a production run would likely be limited to twenty vehicles worldwide. You can learn more about the car from Memminger’s website.

In related news, Volkswagen recently announced it was starting to wind down production of the iconic Beetle.
