Everyone who drove or sat as a passenger in Trabant knows that the ride with this beast is something specific and it doesn’t need any additional comment. But meanwhile the owner realized that racing car needed more and more Money so he decided to rebuild its machine to a fancy show car to make some parade on the move. Its chassis was modified heavily – its pillars are shorter about 70mm (top chopping). Windows and fenders are made individually. Front clear headlamps came from VW Golf and rearview mirrors from motorbike. The killing performance needs a bunch of safety so the car has a roll cage, Jamex leather sporting seats and 30cm wide Raid steering-wheel. Koni is a producer of shock-absorbers allowing quite big deflection of wheels so thanks to this the car looks like a duck but handling is far better. ATS alloy rims has 13“ and in front they have 7“ of width and actually 8“ at the back. They wear 175/50 R13 tires.
The owner of this Trabi – Thomas hasn’t tried to obtain a permission to drive this little one on the ordinary roads by TÜV (Technischer Ü berwachungs-Verein) yet, but he’s going to do it in the near future. So, good luck!
