It is a heartbreaker of a car, a real dreamboat and possibly the most beautiful VW ever built. However the sporty coupe does have one small drawback. Its design is far racier than its driving performance.The first Ghias were fitted wtih 30 horsepower VW Beetle engines, while later models got 50 horsepower motors. Still, when the Karmann Ghia was introduced back in 1955 this was more than enough to keep vehicles like the Goggomobil and BMW Isetta in check. During it's close to 20 years in production, some 443,000 Ghias were sold. Today this classic car has nothing left to prove. We take a relaxing drive in this stylish milestone of automotive history.
A true classic - Karmann Ghia | Drive it!
Wulf Henrichs is a passionate collector of classic cars. He decided to take
a risky venture and bought an old classic over the internet for 17,000
euros without even taking a look at it. It's a Volkswagen Karmann Ghia and
spent most of its life in the United States.

Vintage! Porsche-powered Karmann Ghia | Drive it!
Jochen Bader's Karmann Ghia RS is one of a kind. It's part Volkswagen, part
Porsche and a whole lot of fun. He took the sporty body of a 1970 Karmann
Ghia and pumped it full of Porsche technology. The result is a Ghia with an
output of 321 horsepower and a top speed
of more than 300 kilometers an hour.

Vintage! Porsche 911S | drive it!
The 911 is THE iconic sports car and the raspy note from its air-cooled
engine became its trademark.Two years after the 911 hit the showrooms,
Porsche came out with the even more powerful 911S. Under the hood was a 2
liter motor pumping out 160 PS. It was enough to take car and driver to a
top speed of over 220 km/h. The original design from 1963 was the work of
Ferdinand Alexander Porsche, who was just 28 years old at the time. The
car's timeless silhouette still catches the eye today and provides the
blueprint for all 911s that followed.
Vintage - the Honda S800 | drive it!
Our car tester Christoph Bauer takes a trip back in time with a real
automotive milestone from the 1960s: the Honda S800. Its elegant contours
are reminiscent of classic British roadsters like the Triumph TR 4 or MG B.
But the ride factor in this baby is more medieval than modern, thanks in
particular to the solid axle at the back.That said: even by today's
standards, a ride in the Honda S800 really is something special. No other
car could coax so much power and fun out of a 0.8-liter capacity.

Karmann-Ghia anniversary 50 years 1955-2005
On the 14th of July 1955 the Volkswagen Karmann Ghia was presented to the
public. Members of the media and business were invited to the Kasino in
Georgsmarienhütte, which is close to the Karmann factory in Osnabrück.
50 years on, Karmann Ghia friends around the world are invited to take part
in these jubilee celebrations at the historical location, invited by the
big Karmann Ghia clubs of Germany with the support of numerous sponsors and
helpers. Georgsmarienhütte is situated a few kilometres south of
Osnabrück in northern Germany.
This is a short private movie of me as participant - it is not the official
video off the anniversary.
