Someone please buy this and swap a TDI into it:pukerofl

We all may be up to our eyebrows in holiday cheer at the moment, but prom season is right around the corner. Thanks to the wonder of the Internet, now you can be ready to rake in the cold, hard cash of parents desperate to please their teenage daughters. Behold, the Volkswagen New Beetle limousine. This fine piece of machinery is up for bid right now from New Jersey's Route 22 Limousines. Inside, this stretcher has everything you'd expect from an engorged Beetle, including a grey leather interior, television, minibar and trippy mood lighting.

Miraculously enough, this machine gets its power from the Beetle's stock 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine bolted to the same four-speed automatic gearbox that it used from the factory. Loaded with screaming teens, we have to imagine that this thing gets to 60 mph in about the same time frame as our grandmother. On foot.

Still, a limo as unique as the one above could be a genuine money-maker. Or at least it would be if it didn't have a $45,000 Buy It Now price. Check it out on eBay.

Interesting how the right side has 2 front doors :D I see a left rear door but it doesn't look like it's functional.

I wonder how well it's made. I mean, if you drove over railroad tracks, would it split in half?

I wonder how long the parking brake cables are.

Is the rear hatch an emergency exit :D

With a full load of 8 passengers and a heavier body, that car must be the definition of 2.slow. I don't think a TDI will help unless you put in a modded one.
