Paul Newman owned 1963 300HP V8 Volkswagen Beetle

If you a a Volkswagen Beetle lover, this bug’s for you … for a mere $250,000 from what I hear.

As the legend is told… back in 1963 Paul Newman bought a VW…the little red Convertible seen in this late 60’s VW ad. Not so long after this advertisement came out…the car was taken to legendary Race Car Builder Jerry Eisert for a little “mechanical upgrade” of sorts. The result was one of the most insane and legendary VW’s of all time.
The Newman “Indy VW”.
