Berg-Cup MK1 Rabbit Project

Rarely do you ever see a MK1 that’s been rescued from imminent death at the hands of a careless and neglectful owner. Sure, there are those few at the shows that have been restored to their former glory but how often do you get the chance to lay eyes on one with purposeful and elegant fender flares molded into the body. One with a ducted lip spoiler that sits perilously close to the ground and is preciously held onto the body by three little Dzus fasteners. Doing something different has become next to impossible these days, but this is Matt Halley’s attempt at doing just that. This car isn’t necessarily built to be a track car, nor is it meant to just look pretty at the scene meets. This car can best be described a full scale model- that you can actually drive- eventually.

The bones of the project are fairly obvious. Berg-cup flare kit, massive BBS motorsport wheels, gutted and caged , aluminum race seat- all motivated by a 2.0 ABA crate motor with dual Dellorto carbs. The lesser seen details are soon to follow as the project moves forward and takes shape. For now take a look at how the Rabbit was received less than 24 hours before our Oktoberfest and 10 year anniversary.
