Yasid Design Turned A Volkswagen Beetle Into An Aerodynamic Le Mans-Ready Racer

London-based concept artist Yasid Oozeear is no stranger to over-the-top, off-the-wall automotive designs, for he consistently eschews the status quo in an effort to create a car that’s so radically revisionist that it becomes something entirely unto its own. Just take this Volkswagen Beetle rendering he’s calling ‘Max,’ for instance.

From the outset, it’s pretty clear that this is no ordinary punch buggy concept. Gone are the curvaceous wheel arches, rounded headlights, and chrome bumpers; instead, such features have been replaced by some aerodynamic Le Mans-style fenders, a set of squared LEDs, and an aggressive, low-slung splitter. And that’s not all; elsewhere, you’ll find that he’s given it ribbed side-skirts, a carbon-clad lightbar, as well as a roof scoop for some added downforce. When viewed from the rear, there’s no doubt that this Beetle was rendered for race day performance — a pair of spoilers extend over its massive slicks and its pedestrian 1,200cc flat-four has been exchanged for a mid-engined V12. Riding just a few inches above the ground, the only elements that give you any indication of this car’s origins would be what little remains of the hood and roofline — but that’s enough to clue in even casual observers.
