VW Beetle fenders reused as go-kart holds Minion-level of cuteness

Say hello to Bugkart Wasowski.

Mexican based Aldekas Studio is known to design various and unique Volkswagen Beetles as its artwork. The latest entry of the studio is a go-kart called Bugkart Wasowski that’s made from a VW Beetle’s fender.

Looking at the unique go-kart, it may remind you of the Disney character Mike Wazowski from Monster Inc. Well, that is because the go-kart is indeed inspired by the said character. The single front headlamp on the fender resembles Mike Wazowski’s one-eyed monster characteristic.

Meet Bugkart Wasowski.

Adding to its appealing visuals is the exterior finished in olive green paint, as well as the frame painted in bright red. The seats and handles are finished in leather to make the go-kart a little fancy. Needless to say, Bugkart Wasowski is a weird artwork but in a good way.

As much as we want to get our hands on the go-kart, it is only a real-life rendered image. Bugkart Wasowski pays homage to the classic VW Beetle Type 1. The designers purposely created Bugkart Wasowski to look as vintage and retro as possible.

In case you’re wondering, Alkedas Studio did not release any powertrain details. The studio hasn’t released anything other than the go-kart’s rendered image.

Bugkart Wasowski could be a good and cute alternative for the e-bikes we have here in the Philippines. It could be used for short-distance rides, for a quick stop in the grocery, or even in parks with the family.

Imagine rolling in this with your friends.

As said earlier, Bugkart Wasowski is only a real-life rendered image. This means that it is not on sale and it seems like it will stay that way. However, if many will request Alkedas Studio to make Mike Wazowski come to life, maybe the go-kart will become a reality. Who knows?

Two things excite him the most: first is staying up to speed with the latest news in the industry that uses engines as their heart and soul. The second is imparting them in a well-detailed manner.

Someday, Rex only wishes to drive on random highways with friends in a third-gen Mitsubishi Delica with aftermarket sunroofs, if he couldn’t get the Starwagon Super Exceed edition.
