390kW Volkswagen T1 Race Taxi revealed

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”.
