Milivie 1 is a Volkswagen Beetle restomod that transforms a historical classic into a vehicle of the future. The company intends to make only 22 examples at a starting price of EUR 570,000.
In the design, the German company combined the original Beetle with elements of the water-cooled Porsche model. Circular LED lights replace the standard lamps, and the rest are closer to the bumper. At the rear end, a large spoiler is placed on the engine cover, and the light groups are in the shape of a horseshoe.
The cabin has been completely redesigned compared to the simplicity of the old Beetle. The driver now has a digital instrument panel in front of him, which is connected to the screen for multimedia content. There are multiple modes for displaying information, including one that mimics analog instruments. Passengers can charge their devices wirelessly or via a 220V socket, USB and USB-C port.
The donor for the Milivie 1 was the VW Beetle 1303 from the early seventies, which was larger than the original model. In the United States, this model was sold under the name Super Beetle. The complete conversion required more than a thousand man-hours, including the installation of double-wishbone suspension on all wheels, as well as disc brakes.
It is powered by a 2.28-liter inline four-cylinder with air cooling and a pair of Weber carburetors. Strength data not published. The transmission is a ZF 4HP four-speed automatic, and power is sent to the rear wheels. There are Drive, Sports and Manual modes.
22 copies were selected for the series because the Beetle sold a total of 22 million copies. Milivie will work with customers on maximum adaptation of the vehicle to their wishes, and the first deliveries are expected in May 2025.
