Lawlors Customs from Northern Ireland are behind this true masterpiece - VW Beetle 1968. It is magnificent from any angle you look at it. The beetle started its life back in 1968 and it took Lawlors Customs 3 years to bring the car back to the former glory with their added touches like full air suspension, Porsche alloys etc.

Full specs:

VW Beetle 1968

Fully restored, narrowed and modified.
Independent front suspension.
CNC fabricated rear suspension cradle
4 wheel air adjustable suspension
Widened wings
17" Chrome Porsche Turbo Twists
1766cc twin 40 webber conversion

Full cream interior refurb


Thanks for looking,
Reinis

Good coverage of it. I like #4, but of course #5 is my favorite.

Awesome ride, great shots....however....


" Fully restored, narrowed and modified." - that doesn't make sense, if its restored, it can't be modified.
Restored is back to original. :)


With that said, it is in my opinion one of the most tastefully done bugs I have seen in many years.

Great Set, Really love the location and subject, I like #5 but maybe without a tilt and really like #6 but wish the bug was at more of a 3/4 facing the mountain range. Great shots regardless.

Very nice photos, they capture the Bug perfectly.

For me the modern Porsche wheels don't fit on it ... would look really amazing with a set of staggered Fuchs from the early 911 however.

It needs some smaller tires to be stretched on those turbo twists so it could lay frame! Otherwise, the car and the photos are beautiful!
