I don’t know why but I’m ust in love with the crazy and epic builds ike the one you saw in this video: a Volkswagen T1 bus powered by a Porsche 993 Turbo engine.I saw this car during a charity event for disabled people, called 6 Ruote di Speranza, where they have the chance to get on board on various cars and supercars and do some laps as passegers around Monza Circuit.
This T1 was really perfect for the event because it shares 3 other seats for passengers in addition to the driver’s one.The creator of this car is the Swiss Fred Bernhard and he needed around 5 years to complete the project starting from a T3 van.
He firstly decided to change the T3 body with the one of a T1 split-screen widened 21cm. Than the engine: he took the 3.6-litre twin turbo engine of a Porsche 993 Turbo tuned up to produce around 530 hp and 757 Nm of torque.
Everything else, from the chassis to the setup, has been made and modified to create a perfect track monster van.Quite a shame I saw it during this event since among traffic on track and of course passengers I couldn’t appreciate the potential of this vehicle. Hope to see it again in the future!
