Beetle by Vrbanus

This is our take on the famous Volkswagen Beetle, handmade from wrought iron

Beetle

Why did you do it?

Because we have more than 30 years experience in making metal products, so we wanted to show what we can do

Beetle

Where is this

Our company is based in Sisak, Croatia, a town more than 2000 years old

Beetle

What is the Beetle made of?

Handmade wrought iron, heated, bent, hammered, and welded onto the original chasis

Beetle

How long did it take?

We worked painstakingly for 3.500 hours, or 6 months in total

Beetle

What is left of the original car?

We preserved the chasis, motor, and some details like wheelcaps and mirrors. Of course, all the windows are also from the 1970 original

Beetle

Where is the original bodywork?

We took it down, and replaced it fully with our designs. There is no old bodywork left, so the cars body is now transparent

Beetle

Does it drive?

Of course it drives. It is just slightly heavier than the original, an it drives like the normal 1970 Beetle

Beetle

What are these?

Deatils are gold-plated and decorated with more than 5000 original Swarovski crystals

Beetle

When did you do it?

The Beetle is originally presented at the 2002 Munich fair, and additionally decorated for 2012 Essen Motor Show

Beetle

Is it for sale?

No. It is, however, available for exhibiting at car shows, fairs or other events. We do not advise it to be driven

Beetle

What happens when it rains?

Ah, the inevitable question... On rainy days, we keep it inside. Just like any other day

Dress

And what is this?

This is a crinoline made from wrought iron in the same style as the Beetle. It is also available for exhibitions
