Beetle-based Brazilian strange-looking show-car

The Volkswagen Beetle's platform seems to provide an unmatched versatility that led to its popularity for beach-buggies, sportscar replicas, and so many other projects. This one, specifically, was displayed at a supermarket in my hometown some years ago, while being used to advertise loudspeakers and other sound system components.
The body was made out of fiberglass-reinforced plastic, which allowed the quite complex shape, and resembled the proportions of the classic British roadsters with a long front and a set-back cockpit right above the rear axle. It was not roadworthy, but still definitely attracted a lot of attention and that's what really matters for a marketing tool anyway...
