These are the: European Car magazine’s ‘Beach Battle-Cruiser’, Galpin Auto Sports ‘Chopped Top’, Rotiform’s Beetle, and FMS Automotive’s classic 1956 model and a modern 2012.

Volkswagen is putting the spotlight on the Beetle, which will celebrate its 75th anniversary in 2013. H&R has also built a custom Golf R that will be showing off the suspension modifications.

Tim Mahoney, executive VP at Volkswagen of America, said that Volkswagen has plenty of enthusiastic fans who follow its products such as the Beetle, GTI, Golf R and GLI, which have acted as the platform for several of car culture’s most unforgettable aftermarket and show car creations.

He added that with the Beetle’s 75th anniversary approaching, it seems only right that they honor its heritage with the suppliers and customization partners at the SEMA show.
