The retro-inspired new VW Beetle gave the auto industry a breath of fresh air when it was introduced in the late nineties. Its fresh design and engineering was said to be leading the auto industry into the second millennium. However, the excitement was restricted to one form only. And like the old times, many diehard Beetle lovers would like to have a whiff of fresh air while driving their all-time favourite. Though VW didn't have that option in mind in 1999, there was help at hand from a very well-know name in the business in the US. Reputed automobile designer, coach and convertible builder, Richard Straman Design and Coachbuilding lets the sun shine in, by offering a very attractive cabriolet model as an alternative to the production 2-door coupe. Designed and engineered by Richard Straman, this new Beetle Cabriolet is the industry standard for quality design and workmanship. The cabriolet offers traditional open style driving, easy operating manual or power top - just detach the latch on each front pillar, push the toggle switch or simply pull back and the top neatly folds down. The Straman designed cabriolet is the only one to feature standard, large, power rear quarter windows for added light and ventilation in the rear seating compartment. Mechanically, the chassis is converted and stiffened. A steel rod located over the boot acts as the backbone. The floor pan is stiffened with 1/3-inch steel tubes. And a more powerful VW VR6 engine was added under the boot to create a smooth driving top down experience.
