Ultra VW May issue – coming soon!

maycoverThe May issue will be on sale in stores across the UK from April 24th (and Subscribers should receive their copies several days earlier, of course). You’ll be able to pre-order your copy online via our shop shortly (with FREE postage *UK only), and we’ll announce the release of digital issue shortly.

Editor, Paul Knight says:- Wow, have we got some treats in store for you this month! At one end of the scale we have Daniel Rissi’s subtle vintage slammer. Essentially a very well restored ’55 Bug, albeit with a hardcore slam job – there’s no denying that it has serious attitude and style! And, almost a polar-opposite is Grover… Phil Mizzi’s externally ratty Split-screen pick-up. Rat is only skin deep though, as this is a real wolf in sheeps clothing! With more than 600hp on tap and 9-second quarter-mile potential, this is certainly one of the best-engineered and hardcore air-cooled Type 2 drag Buses anywhere in the world. And that’s not all… there’s also Jason Smith’s ’63 Ghia, which also packs a 600hp sting in the tail! However, this is a streetable show-and-go car, which is detailed to perfection. We’ve also thrown in an awesome early 911 dream machine and an insane VW trike from Indonesia… Only Ultra VW could bring together such a wide spectrum of cars, styles and scenes in one magazine – we sincerely hope you enjoy them all!   PK

Volkswagen of Brazil say goodbye to the Kombi

Check out this great video from VW entitled, ‘Kombi Last Wishes’

here’s VW of Brazil’s description…
As a tribute to the people who were a part of its life, the VW Type 2 (Kombi) fulfills its last wishes.

The VW Type 2 (Kombi) was created by Dutchman Ben Pon in the 1940′s. He came up with a combination between the reliable mechanical set of the Volkswagen Sedan and a light load vehicle. Adopted in Brazil, the name “Kombi” is an abbreviation of the German word Kombinationsfahrzeug — meaning “combined vehicle”. In Germany the model was called VW Bus T1 (Transporter Number 1).

In recent years, despite the competition of bigger vans sold in the Brazilian market, the VW Type 2 was still the favorite among many clients. From September 1957 to September 2013, over 1,560,000 units were produced in the São Bernardo do Campo plant.

The documentary took six months in the making. The film gathers scenes from people who went through special moments with a Type 2, going from Owings Mills, in the suburbs of Baltimore (USA) — where designer Bob Hieronimous receives a gift from the car –, all the way across the ocean to Amsfort, in the Netherlands, where the Kombi meets its brother Ben Pon Jr. before finally leaving.
