“Introducing the Volkswagen Virtus Convertible: A Unique One-Off Model!”
This Volkswagen Virtus convertible is a special creation from Brazil, meticulously designed to ensure both practicality and comfort. The project aimed to transform the Virtus into a versatile vehicle suitable for plant tours, completed within a tight 6-week timeframe with a team of 30 professionals.
The convertible features a unique design with the complete removal of B and C pillars, reinforced structures for rigidity, and extended floor length. Custom-built rear seats and a transverse bar behind the front seats enhance passenger comfort and safety, allowing easy transition between sitting and standing positions.
Finished in Biscay Blue, paying homage to the Brazilian flag, the convertible boasts 18-inch alloy wheels, a sporty dual-tone finish, and black-themed interiors with modified dashboard and door inserts.
Various mechanical modifications were made, ensuring compatibility with the 1.4-litre TSI engine generating 150PS and 250Nm of torque, paired with either a 6-speed manual or 7-speed DSG automatic gearbox, as per Brazilian standards.”
