A joy to behold: the VW Karmann Ghia | Drive it!
Karmann specialized in open-top cars from its very beginning. The coach-builder produced its first slick convertibles and coupes back in 1902. But its moment of real glory came in 1958 with the Volkswagen Karmann Ghia. More cars: http://www.dw.com/driveit
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.
