A house storage within the UK has turned heads on the web after the venture homeowners determined to tug a world’s first with a 1988 VW Caddy pickup. Through the use of unique elements by no means used earlier than on a truck venture, Garage 68 Motorsport have determined put a McLaren 650S engine of their outdated VW Caddy, and if that doesn’t get your consideration but, the transmission is a 6-speed guide from a Gallardo/Audi R8.
