.....it’s a Volkswagen that was sold exclusively in Brazil.

The SP2 was built on the frame of the VW Type III, and had the same air-cooled engine - bored to a whopping 1.7-litres - producing 75bhp. 0-60mph was in the region of 16 seconds.

I think it's pretty. I think you could do things with the suspension and engine.

I like. :nutter:

I like too. I especially like the way the lines go all the way round the car.

^this. No prior knowledge of this - good find.
If I ever saw one I'm sure I'd think it cool.

I've never seen one before either, think it's cool and presume there would be a chance of being able to put a Porsche engine into it to give it a bit of poke.

Never heard of it before. Rather nice though. From certain angles it looks a little like a Porsche 928. Very retro.

The rear (particularly the lights) looks very like a 911.

I hadn't seen one before either and I went "ooh" when I saw it, I voted supercool.

Not that bad looking for a 1970’es VW, except for the hideous VW K70 front.

But, rear mounted aircooled VW Beetle engine, placed on the platform of the VW 1500 van,
Brazilian build with Nigeria as the largest export market.
= Uncool for me.

Interesting and unusual so got to be cool.

Pretty without being gorgeous.

Looks Like VW, Porsche and Datsun had an orgy and this was the result. I like it!

Cool.

What a pretty little thing. I'd never heard of these before. I like it! Coupes can be a bit hairdresser, but this is old enough for that not to matter. Cool car.
