The construction of the car took six months

A resident of the Indian city of Chertal Rakesh Babu assembled his own classic Volkswagen Beetle from the trash found in his father’s workshop. And he never saw a live car.

The basis of the “Beetle” was a steel frame. The engine is borrowed from a Suzuki Samurai motorcycle, and the wheels are from a rickshaw. Due to the lack of necessary components and money, Babu himself assembled the reverse gear for the box and the engine starting system. The car body was made by checking photos of the original model.

Such a “Beetle” is able to accelerate to 40 kilometers per hour and consumes 3.4 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers. Due to the current restrictions on the operation of home-made cars, Babu cannot go on regular roads, but really wants to get to some kind of exhibition.

The Beatle’s construction took half a year, however, Babu is sure that if he worked full time, he would be able to meet three months.
