Have you ever dared to imagine what might occur when you merge two vintage 1962 Volkswagen Type 2 vehicles? The outcome is a camper unlike any other, and soon, it will be up for grabs at auction.
The most surprising aspect? This eccentric creation is fully registered and street-legal for use on British roads, exuding a coolness factor that effortlessly eclipses conventional trucks and RVs.
These two venerable VW Type 2 vehicles embarked on a remarkable journey of transformation to become a fully-fledged RV. The front one takes on the role of the tow vehicle, with its insides artfully sliced in half, metamorphosing into a charming two-door pickup truck, complete with an engine nestled in the bed.
The second vehicle steps into the spotlight as the living quarters. Its base has been deftly excised to seamlessly meld with the tow vehicle. What's more, this VW marvel boasts a potent heart—a 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine sourced from an Audi S3, harmoniously paired with an automatic transmission.
Car & Classic, the purveyor of this extraordinary creation, lavishes praise on its roomy living quarters. There, you'll find ample space to accommodate a king-sized bed, ensconced within wooden cabinets that stand ready to house your belongings. A spot for a refrigerator is thoughtfully provided, and a mobile roof can be elevated to expand the interior space, should you desire a bit more headroom.
The seller enthusiastically points out the impeccable bodywork of the VW Type 2, with straight lines and pristine paint that betrays no signs of dents or blemishes. It's a testament to the craftsmanship that has gone into this one-of-a-kind creation.
While the exact pre-auction offer remains a closely guarded secret, one can only imagine the level of interest and excitement this unique Audi S3-powered RV adventure will generate among collectors and adventurers alike.
