This VW Bus tipped on its side is actually a race car

Follow Jeff

If you follow the world of the 24 Hours of LeMons, you absolutely know the name Speedycop. His actual name is Jeff Bloch, and he’s a one of the most creative builders out there. He built the airplane race car, the upside-down car, an amphibious helicopter, and now he’s back with one of his best builds yet, the “Trippy Tippy Hippy Van.”

At first glance, it appears to be a Volkswagen Bus that has tipped over onto its side. And then it starts driving, and your confusion shifts into high gear. What you’re actually seeing is a 1988 Volkswagen Rabbit hiding behind 1976 VW Camper Van body panels.

Bloch utilized one-way vinyl on Lexan sheets that would look like body panels but allow him and his other drivers to see through them. The right side features a vinyl imprint of an actual Bus undercarriage, as well as fake tires mounted sideways to complete the illusion.

Bloch says the vehicle corners well and has a lot of grip, but it can lift two wheels when cornering. Power is derived from a 1.8-liter, 16-valve VW GTI engine that makes about 120 horsepower. Bloch claims 0 to 60 mph takes about 8.0 seconds, and the Van will go about 100 mph.
