The German firm's latest creation is the Roadster 2.7, a car it says is what a "modern Beetle could look like."

Power comes from a 2.7-liter air cooled boxer engine, which puts out around 210 horsepower. The gearbox is a five-speed unit, while the bodywork is a welded tubular steel frame.


While the exterior is unmistakably Beetle, with a whiff of classic Porsche Speedster about it too, the interior is an ever so slightly more up-to-date affair. It is bare though. There's no proper door handles or door cards, exposing the steel framework of the car. It very much gives the feel of a racecar from days gone by. The racing bucket seats come lined with tartan fabric, adding a little color to the inside as well.


We don't actually know how much the Memminger Roadster 2.7 is, nor do we know how to get one, but you'll likely need an old Beetle roadster to cannibalize first, and a lot of money as well. Boutique restomod cars are rarely on the cheap side.
