Prepare To Invade Poland With This WWII Inspired VW Beetle Cabrio

The Volkswagen Beetle Cabrio has largely been dismissed as a so-called “chick car,” but this particular model is decidedly more manly and German.

Billed an army replica, this one-off Beetle is essentially a modern day Kübelwagen as it features a WWII-inspired flat green paint job, Balkenkreuz accents and painted lighting units which are designed to resemble blackout lights. The military-inspired design doesn’t end there as the Beetle has been equipped with a wire mesh windshield, a brush guard and a pickaxe and shovel which are mounted onto the hood.

Other notable styling features include painted 16-inch alloy wheels, an assortment of jerry cans and a faux machine gun. The model also has two side-mounted spare tires, but only one of them appears to be functional.

The military theme continues in the cabin, but the modifications are hilariously half-hearted. As a result, much of the interior carries over while only a handful of surfaces are painted green.

While the listing is light on specifics, the replica is apparently based on a 2000 Beetle Cabrio which features a 2.0-liter petrol engine that produces 115 hp (85 kW / 116 PS). The car has 170,000 miles (273,588 km) on the odometer and boasts air conditioning as well as an alarm to deter those pesky allied forces. Drivers can also jam out to the model’s premium audio system – assuming the speakers weren’t ruined by a bad paint job.

If this sounds like your cup of tea sauerkraut, the car can be yours for just £750 ($940 / €829). While the model runs and drives, the listing says it’s not roadworthy and is only meant to be used as a “toy.”

      It also looks strangely appealing to me. Just from a retro styling aspect.

    Should’ve been a Tesla. It would have done a much better job at invading Poland, even with the Autopilot switched on, and would never have been defeated.

    Not quite so… Poland lost some territories after WWII. For instance Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania, was a part of Poland before WWII. Also Galicia, mostly populated by Ukrainians, became part of Ukraine (under Soviet control of course). Belarus also gained some Polish terriotries. So 6 million is more correct number because some people just lost Polish citizenship after WWII.
