A monster beetle is what you get when an aircraft engineer has a 1968 VW Beetle lying around and too much time on his or her hands. The modification which you can see was allegedly planned out in CAD for structural integrity and all that other stuff. With a new engine 2.8 Liter engine, it should have a pretty good power to weight ratio to boot. While it will not literally eat a Hummer for breakfast, it does look a whole lot cooler and is bound to have a more reasonable environmental footprint.
