Swiss tuner Fred Bernhard has revealed his 390kW Volkswagen T1 Race Taxi at the 2015 GTI Meeting at Worthersee in Germany.
THE WORLD has gone ga-ga over the Kombi and this 390kW/757Nm Volkswagen T1 Race Taxi by Fred Bernhard has just been revealed at the 2015 GTI Meeting at Worthersee in Germany. It uses an air-cooled engine from a Porsche 993 with two turbocharges bolted onto it. It’s mated to a six-speed manual gearbox from a Porsche 996 GT3 while the steering and brakes are from the same donor car as the engine.
According to the builder, Fred Bernhard, the six-year long project was personal “For me it was a professional challenge. I wanted to find out the limit of what is possible”.
