Description

The Volkswagen Karmann Ghia is a sports car marketed in 2+2 coupe (1955–1974) and convertible (1957–1974) body styles by Volkswagen. The Karmann Ghia combined the chassis and mechanicals of the Type 1 (Beetle) with styling by Luigi Segre of the Italian carrozzeria Ghia and hand-built bodywork by the German coach-builder Karmann. The Karmann Ghia was internally designated the Typ 14. Production doubled soon after its introduction, becoming the car most imported into the U.S. More than 445,000 Karmann Ghias were produced in Germany over the car's production life. Karmann Ghia Brazil produced 41,600 cars locally for South America between 1962 and 1975.

The Type 14 was marketed as a practical and stylish 2+2 rather than as a true sports car. As they shared engines, the Type 14's engine displacement grew concurrently with the Type 1 (Beetle), ultimately arriving at a displacement of 1584 cc, producing 60 hp (45 kW).

This die-cast model is a highly customized version of the real car. It features an air scoop and a large rear wing. The air scoop section of the roof and wing is removable, revealing the engine. A roll bar is added for the safety of the driver. On the underside of the model, the gearbox and front suspension are seen. Due to the removable part (making this model consist of five parts instead of four) is has only been released once in the basic line.
