How ‘Low’ Can You Go With Your Volkswagen?

This is an enthusiast car club with a strong 1652 members in Malaysia. Their passion is their Volkswagens and how ‘low’ can they take them while being able to navigate the many pot holes and speed bumps that Malaysia is famous for.

The club had a gathering yesterday at the Subang Jaya SS15, 4-storey car park complex from 12 noon.

There was a good 84 members at the gathering and plenty of car junkies with smart phone cameras taking pictures of the Volkswagen low riders.

A little history on this unique VW pictured above. It was designed by Ferdinand Porsche and built by Volkswagen during World War II for use by the German military – the VW Kübelwagen. It is widely reported that just over 50,000 were produced due initially to demand from high ranking Third Reich army officials for an inexpensive. light-weight military transport vehicle for on and off-road use – the VW Beetle provided the basis for such a vehicle.

While the KdF wagen (Volkswagen Beetle) was not designed specifically from the outset to have military application, it was clear to the military planners that it had the potential. Already in January 1938, prior to the completion of the VW factory, an order to develop a military version was given. The first version, the Type 62 (prototype above), cobbled up by Ferry Porsche in a month, was essentially a Type 1 (Beetle) with a primitive body and 19″ tires to give it added ground clearance.
