Volkswagen Beetle Covered with Wrought Iron Gate Designs

The Croatian metal shop MG Vrbanus put three artists to work modifying this 1970 Volkswagen Beetle. It took them 3,500 hours of work to put in 5,000 Swarovski crystals and hundreds of pounds of wrought iron and gold leaf.

The craftsmen began by sketching a design on the sheet metal body. Then they removed it, section by section, and replaced it with carefully planned designs inspired by metal fencing. The see-through body now exposes the machinery underneath. They executed their work with such precision that they could fit the original windows back into place without any trouble.

I don’t know if this car is street legal, but you can rent it for weddings. It would make a glorious exit vehicle for a happy couple.
