The iconic VW Beetle is captured in amazing detail with the totally new mid-motor 2wd M10DT platform from Carisma. Officially licensed by Volkswagen, Germany the M10DT Beetle bodyshell is produced in a special matt desert military green finish, creating a stunning scale look. Additional moulded head and taillights, indictors, mirrors, door handles and rear engine detailing brings this Beetle to life. But it doesn’t just stop there. A moulded roof cage with light bar (optional LED lights are available) is factory mounted and the final touch is unpainted accessory moulding of oil drum, tool boxes, petrol cans, bags and spade that allows you to take scale realism to a whole new level. Oh and did we mention the muddied look wheels and tyres?
