The historical model: VW T1a Midlands Centre Bully with Brezelkäfer body

The VW T1a Midlands Centre Bully with Brezelkäfer body is an extraordinary model car with historical roots. The original, the VW T1a, belongs to the first generation (built from 1950 to 1967) of VW Transporters, also known as "Bulli". These vehicles were appreciated worldwide for their versatility and robustness. The T1a was the successor to the VW Type 2 and set standards in compactness and reliability in the transportation sector. Technical features of the original include an air-cooled four-cylinder boxer engine with a power output of 25 horsepower (later up to 44 horsepower) as well as rear-wheel drive. The T1a reached a top speed of about 80 km/h (50 mph), which was remarkable for the time. One of the most striking features of the T1a is the split windshield, which earned it the nickname "Brezelkäfer" (Pretzel Beetle).
