Bespoke 1957 VW Beetle is a ‘work of art’

A car dealership in Sheffield has just taken delivery of a rather special VW Beetle. In any form, the classic Beetle is an icon, but this bespoke model has been tuned and fettled by a team of US manufacturers to turn it into a true 'work of art'.

The vehicle was originally commissioned by Tim Buckhold, a southern Californian-based VW enthusiast. Sent to Mendeola Signature Motors in San Diego, it was then mated to a modified chassis – before being sent on to several other customisation companies for further fettling.
