The VW “Thing” Type 181 is one of the vehicles that benefits most from our MassIVe Type 4 engine program. The 181 is notoriously under- powered, and very non- aerodynamic, as provided by the factory. Pictured here, fitted to Jake Raby’s “Type 481” (that originally saw it’s first Type 4 engine fitted in 1998) this “Thing” remains a great driver vehicle. Featuring plenty of power, reliability, and cool running to handle modern speeds.
