I can't get on board with this one. Don't get me wrong. I like when people make some weird cars, but this doesn't look right. It's like when car companies release new modern versions of vintage models. Never quite does the brand justice.

Yeah, Im trying to be positive, but you have a good point. Maybe it looks better in person?

The main issue I feel are that that headlights are too small and the hood is too smooth. With a typical old school bug you have that distinctive shape in the sheet metal if it had that rolled into the metal and bigger headlights that were lower to the ground I think itd look better. The proportions are off.

But I want to see how much it looks like a snail with the top up! Is it called the S-car? Because look at that S Car go!

That thing looks like a "transformer' insect. I guess at least they tried.

Maybe a cut up aircooled beetle hood would have looked cool
