If you had unlimited amounts of money what would you do to your city bug?

If it was possible i would remove the backseat and rear wheel suspension, and in it's place fit a drivetrain from a Porsche Boxster S or what would be most suitable.
Stock engine would also be removed along with the front wheel suspension and get replaced with something else.

A rear wheel drive P107 with 260 Hp would be a blast on the highway and hopefully also on winding country roads.

Rear door handles would be removed and the doors modified to gull-wing types to gain access to the engine when service is required.
Some form of enclosure of the engine would also be nice to keep it as stealthy as possible.

The only visible tell tales on the outside would be exhaust pipes in the middle of the rear bumper, wider tires and of course the sound when the engine is running.

Good call Enjay :mrgreen: , in a similar vein wonder if they could transplant the drive train from a Yaris WRC into a bug, now that would be a weapon!

Mid engine RWD conversion. Would be a brilliant wee sleeper!

You may have seen it, but I wish to drive it.

TBH. The two biggest issues for me is a little more power for overtaking and changing gear in stop start traffic.

So my solution is a KERS system. It just needs a couple of hub motors and a lithium ion battery pack in the spare wheel well. Then just take the existing paddle shifters from the parts bin to operate.

So in stop start traffic (like daily on the motorway) just leave it in neutral and just pull the paddle to edge forward.

Then for overtaking just drive as normal and just pull the paddle for an extra boost.

Finally it would be useful for snow/ice/wet grass to get you going in what is essentially 4wd.

This could be a simple factory option without much change to the car at all. They could also use all the battery in the official testing which would artificially lower Co2 emissions and improve MPG figures.

While everyone else is killing off the city car if could give the bug a new lease of life for very little extra cost.
