This extensively tuned Volkswagen Scirocco took 10+ years to complete
Jason Whipple, the owner of a wheel shop in California, has spent more than ten years restoring and upgrading this unique car, which he calls ‘Million Dollar Scirocco’. Let us look closer at this certain work of art.
Jason started with a 1980 VW Scirocco. He ditched the stock engine in favor of a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder mill he built with his own hands. He then installed a custom transmission to send the power to the wheels.
Moving on inside the cabin, the rear seat row flew out in favor of a roll cage, and the front row is now represented by Sparco black sports seats with blue safety harnesses.
Another highlight of the build comes in the form of a unique paint scheme by Nicolai Sclater, a British graphic artist. The art car flaunts rainbow colors and urges you to reconsider your life with inscriptions like “Things won’t change until we do”, etc.
A fun fact: the tuner had initially wanted the artist to paint his skateboard deck, rather than the car. But when Nicolai saw the elderly vehicle, he immediately felt inspired to work with it instead.
