1956→1957 Rometsch Beeskow Sport Cabriolet

Karosserie Rometsch produced this upmarket Sport Cabriolet for discerning German clients that wanted more luxury than the popular Volkswagen it shared components with.

The body was designed by Johannes Beeskow and produced in aluminum at Karosserie Rometsch in Berlin, Germany.

Underneath the bespoke body is Volkswagen Beetle running gear. Some of the cars were upgraded with a dual-port Okrasa motor that could produce 70 bhp.

Estimates have been made that around 170 of these cars were produced with about 30 cars remaining.
