Smyth Performance has been working on developing a kit that turns your VW Beetle into a truck… Well, it’s here now and we’re not really sure what to think.
The particular conversion was made using a Turbo S with 180HP. The process appears to be pretty straightforward. You order the parts from Smyth Performance, shave off the back end of your Beetle and slap this conversion kit on. Now you have a Beetle Ute. The components are made from 1/8″ thick aluminum and fiberglass, so you don’t have to worry about rust. It does have a functioning tailgate as well, so it’s actually useful for transporting goods. It does give the Beetle an interesting Hot Rod aesthetic.
The first 100 pre-orders can be purchased for just under $3k. Pricing has not been disclosed after that. How do you feel about this car/truck/hot rod? Let us know in the comment section below.
