For all the love the VW bus gets, little to none of it is earned from its killer performance. That’s what makes the FB1 Race-Taxi so wild. What appears as just a freshly painted 1962 Volkswagen T1 Bulli Van, is actually a beast with 530 horsepower and 558 pound-feet of torque. That power comes thanks to an engine transplant from a Porsche 993 Turbo and the use of some carbon fiber to lighten the load. The work of Fred Bernhard, a Swiss auto tinkerer, the FB1 Race-Taxi took over six years to create. It’s the iconic VW Bus on steroids.
