|– new model
The GT II was released in November of 1976. It is a "Luxury Sports Car Kit" in knock-down form, although it could be had as a turn-key car as well. Even though still based on a VW Beetle chassis, the GT II is a much more sophisticated vehicle than the GT. New features includes true gull-wings doors, sliding safety glass in the doors and interior door releases with gas struts, a lower door sills, improved bumpers and steel reinforcing in the roof. The retractable headlamps are now electrically driven. The interior is much roomier, with custom seats. Instrumentation is provided by a set of VDO Jet Cockpit gauges.
