We love the drag racing videos here at Motor1.com, but this one is different from the others. For starters, we rarely see modified Volkswagen Beetles parading, let alone one as wildly personalized as what we see here. We don’t see them racing very often in Porsche 911s either, and this blue Beetle is fighting a valiant battle. But the outcome of this race does not matter, because there is no race. Wait, what?
Before explaining, let’s take a look at the competitors. We have a previous generation Porsche 911 Turbo S, beautiful in yellow. It also appears to be fully stock, which means its supercharged flat-six engine produces 580 horsepower (433 kilowatts) which goes to all four wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. It’s a recipe for exceptional acceleration, allowing the 911 to hit 60 mph in about three seconds on any paved surface, prepared or not.

Its rival is obviously far from being in stock. There’s no other way to put it – this classic Volkswagen Beetle just looks badass from any angle. It sits low with a widebody kit, rolling on big tires that likely connect to an all-wheel drive setup as well. We cannot confirm this, nor can we confirm exactly what type of engine is under the Beetle’s back cover. This information is not offered, but given that the Blue Bug launches as hard as the 911, it is safe to say that there is some serious firepower lurking in the engine bay.
This is where things get a little weird. The cars look fantastic as the camera pans before the race, showing a long track with starting flags blowing in a light breeze. The cars start up and it’s a side-to-side battle with the Porsche leading slightly to the half track. The Beetle finds extra power in the rear half, slowly overtaking the 911 to claim the victory. It’s an epic side-to-side race, but if we’re being honest the video looks kinda weird. It’s a little too clean, too smooth. It’s because it’s not real.
In fact, it is a smart computer generated race of Rob3rt design on Youtube. As you browse the channel as well as the Facebook and Instagram pages, you’ll see all kinds of CGI renderings and videos from this artist, and that’s it. extremely good game.
Yes, this is a fictitious race. But we’re sharing it here not because of the action. Rather, we share it as we would any other exquisite example of automotive art. The talent that went into creating these cars, not to mention the animation for a fun race, is nothing short of extraordinary. We look forward to seeing more on this channel in the future.
