Further info:

Now here's something to set the neighbours' tongues wagging - a Beetle-based evocation of the immortal Type 35 Bugatti. It might not fool Ettore, but is packed with period-style details including: a louvered bonnet complete with leather strap, a pair of aeroscreens, exterior handbrake and scuttle-mounted spare wheel, but very sensibly rides on a recent set of Toyo radial tyres. The donor vehicle was a lefthand drive 1963 Volkswagen, so the evocation is powered by an 1192cc flat-four engine, that's doubtless more than sufficiently powerful to propel the open two-seater fast enough to be great fun. Very smartly turned out, 'OFB 685' is appropriately finished in a shade of French Racing Blue complemented by Brown upholstery, and is now being offered complete with tonneau cover, V5C and a collection of invoices and old MOTs. The vendor presently considers the bodywork, paintwork interior trim, air-cooled engine and four-speed manual transmission as all being in 'good' condition.
