Awesome idea: VW T1 with a 6-cylinder Boxer by Porsche
The Volkswagen T1 Bus is still considered the “Hippie vans” today, however, this nice vehicle can become one of the idols of the northern arc of the “Nürburgring” with some very useful adjustments.
That’s exactly what Misha Charoudin tells us in his video, who was lucky enough to snag a ride with the owner for a lap of the Green Hell, and it looks like it was a strange and wonderful experience. The owner has clearly put a lot of effort and fresh ideas into transforming the cute T1.
Despite the changes, the van can not rival the Porsche 911, but we’re confident it’s just as fun to toss around the Green Hell in the Eifel mountains.
And just a matter of reflection on the balance – the driver and the passenger sit ahead of the front wheels and the engine hangs behind the rear axle …meaning weight balance is a bit…off.
The video is worth at least because of the viewpoint towards specific areas of the Northern Arc and the great sound coming from the engine.
