Unusual modification of the car built tuners from Pepita Garage

Hungarian tuning studio Pepita Garage showed an old Volkswagen Thing SUV, the body of which was covered with genuine chocolate-colored leather.

The story of why Volkswagen never released a four-door folk car

Almost all Volkswagen body elements were covered with leather, including bumpers, exterior mirrors and even the windshield frame. Only the door handles remained intact. In addition, a soft folding roof is made of light brown handmade leather and the interior is sheathed. Also, the tuners “shod” the cabriolet into the Porsche wheels and underestimated the suspension.

Volkswagen 181 was produced between 1968 and 1983 and was originally intended for the German armed forces. The model under the export name Thing was produced from 1973 to 1974 for the US market.

The rear-wheel drive SUV was equipped with a four-cylinder 1.6 petrol engine, which produced 46 horsepower.

Leather trim is more often used to modify the interior of the car. For example, the British tuning studio Mansory showed a modification of the Rolls-Royce Cullinan crossover, the interior of which is almost completely made of turquoise leather.
