What You'll Do
The Volkswagen® Bug. With one glance this sporty icon evokes memories of idealism, peace and the counterculture movement of the 60s… and now you’ve got your very own! While this one looks like the past, it drives like the future. We’re throwing you the keys to a one-of-a-kind 1958 VW Bug with a modern twist. Thanks to Zelectric, this baby is powered by an electric motor and Tesla batteries! Oh yeah, you read that right. An iconic car from 1958 that is now powered by the future of tech, an electric motor and Tesla batteries. You’ll cruise the streets showing off the fully restored classic design on the outside—whitewall tires, chrome accents and a fresh anthracite paint job. Simultaneously, you’ll be in control of its 102 HP (nearly three times its original power!), own its 120 lb-ft of torque and enjoy the almost 100 mile battery range per charge. This baby is truly the best of both worlds—and you’ll be the only one in the world to own it. Taxes and shipping costs are on us.
