Identification of a genuine SP Beetle

Post by Jansch » Wed Jan 17, 2018 12:40 pm

Hi
Can anyone help me. I need to know if my SP is a genuine SP. Is there an identification nr perhaps? Car look like a SP, spec the same. Worried that it's a clone.
Regards
Jan

Welcome Jan

Is it the red one that was advertised about a month ago online ?

The 114Z number on the body plate is for the SP model

I'm intrigued, did you buy the Beetle without seeing the car or even a photo of it ?

Sambas in South Africa are good for only 2 things: showing off and sunburn.
