Chopped Beetle

Share this page

"Chopping," or cutting out a section of the roof to lower it, is popular with Hot Rods, but rarely (if ever) is it done to a brand new car! GAS took this 2013 VW Beetle 6-Speed Turbo and chopped 5.5" off the A-pillars and 2.5" off the B-pillars, giving it that retro, classic "Chopped Top" appearance. GAS also deleted the rear side windows, added custom hand-fabricatedmetal rear air scoops, then lowered the Beetle with Neuspeed lowering springs and sway bar. This bug features Onyx Black paint with Candy Apple Red metal-flake panels and matching interior appointments. The custom black leather interior and headliner is accented with red stitching, 20" 3-piece Forgiato handmade rims (in the style of the original EMPI Porsche wheels of the 60s) and the tinted exterior lights complete the sinister look.
