This VW Karmann Ghia is a Turbocharged Ice Scraper
This Volkswagen Karmann Ghia was once headed towards the scrap heap. Owner
Mike McConnell saved it from death row and added some Subaru power in the
101mm TURBO CTS-V - 1200hp Cadillac!!!
This was probably the NUTTIEST car we encountered at the Pikes Peak Air
Strip Attack - this 1170hp 101mm turbo
equipped Cadillac CTS-V was turning heads everywhere it went. Hop into the
passenger seat as we race down the 1/2 mile raceway at over 180 mph!

From Wikipedia- "The Volkswagen Karmann Ghia is a sports car marketed in
2+2 coupe (1955--1974) and convertible (1957--1974) body styles by
Volkswagen. The Karmann Ghia combined the chassis and mechanicals of the
Type 1 (Beetle) with styling by Luigi Segre of the Italian carrozzeria Ghia
and hand-built bodywork by the German coach-builder Karmann.
The Karmann Ghia was internally designated the Type 14. Volkswagen later
introduced a variant in 1961, the Type 34, featuring angular bodywork and
based on the newly introduced Type 3 platform.
Production doubled soon after its introduction, becoming the car most
imported into the U.S. American industrial designer Walter Dorwin Teague
included the Type 14 in his list of the world's most beautifully designed
More than 445,000 Karmann Ghias were produced in Germany over the car's
production life -- not including the Type 34 variant. Karmann Brazil
produced 41,600 cars locally for South America between 1962 and 1975."
