Bizarre: Volkswagen ID. Buzz with bodykit

September 16, 2022

Carbon fiber party

No, you are not hallucinating. This is really ID. Buzz with a bodykit. The kit includes a splitter for under the front bumper, sideskirts that make the Buzz appear lower, so-called “canards” on the sides, a huge rear spoiler and a not-so-subtle diffuser at the rear. Norwegian Zyrus engineering is the company behind the bodykit. Of course, a body kit for an electric car comes from Norway. The boss of the company, Radni Molhampour, has a good reason why they are marketing the kit “We bought one ourselves (ID. Buzz ed.) and we are super excited, my daughter loves it. Driving to school or running errands every day never has to be a boring mission again.”

Cost that?

The carbon fiber body kit for the ID. Buzz will be on the market in 2023 and will cost nearly twelve thousand euros. Should you also want – as shown in the photo – carbon fiber rims with it, you will have to put down an additional 5,000 euros. A Volkwagen ID. Buzz tentatively starts in the Netherlands from 69,990 euros. This is the introductory version: the 1ST. Later there will also be a passenger version with a starting price of 55,000 euros.

1,200 hp racing car

You may know Zyrus engineering from their previous high-profile projects. For example, they previously built a 1,200-hp street-legal Lamborghini Huracán SuperTrofeo. The “normal” SuperTrofeo has 640 hp, but the use of two turbos and a different engine setup turned this into 1,200 hp. This limited edition is called the Zyrus LP1200 Strada and is limited to only 24 examples. How many kits they have for ID. Buzz making is not known, but it will surely be more than 24.
