The dynamics and cockpit are all super- configurable.Remains largely a TT. Sentimental endearing idiosyncrasies of the car Mk1 will be pleased to see the body is once again, which was built by very geometrically pure blocks apart. View arches point closely drawn , beveled window frames and the simple underlying hull.
