It was designed and made by Volkswagen do Brazil. There were two versions, the SP1 and SP2, which differed in engine size only. As the more powerful (or rather less power-lacking) SP2 model was only a little more expensive there were only 162 SP1 among the 10.193 SP built in total between 1972 and 1976. We could write Volkswagen SP, or use SP2, as the chances finding an SP1 are very small.

The green metallic colour can either be 'Verde Amazonas' used in 1972 or 'Verde Mentol' used 1973-75.

I don't think that the SP2 is the first car 100% developed and manufactured by Brazilians, Ander-san. What about the Gurgel's?

The wikipedia page states that SP is an acronym for São Paulo, but I think that it actually stands for Sport Prototype. The SP1 is even more rare. It's 65hp engine - 10 less than the SP2 - wasn't strong enought for a sport car.

My stepfather owns a 99% original SP2.

Aren't the Gurgel's not just some Buggies, assmbled on VW Typ 1-platforms?

The SP2 is rare indeed. In Germany exist less than a dozen, as I've heard. All private imports, because it was never officially sold here.

The Brazilian Karmann TC is much more rare. There are two ober here (owned by a friend of mine). From the 4-door-VW Type 3, built in Brazil, too on the basis of the German 1961-prototype, there is only one single car in Germany (owned by the same guy). He bought somewhere around Sao Paulo - after some years of searching. Even Brazil don't know winter-times, he hasn't found any of them -SP2 and Karmann TC either- in just acceptable condition. Always worst rust problems. After 7 or 8 years intensive searching he found his 4 Brazilian VW's.

:hello: to Brazil!

Does anyone of the Brazilian members over here have any closer connections to Volkswagen SP2 owners or parts-dealers? Today a friend of a friend has told me, that he owns now one of the 10-12 known SP2 in Europe. For sure speical Brazilian parts are not available over here.

Actually I own one with only 54000 km. It's very rare, even rarer than the Karmann-Ghia TC, also made in Brazil. The variety of colours despite the low number of units produced is wide. I drive a Violeta Pop one in La Paz, Bolivia. There were officially 16 SP2 exported to my country and outside Brazil there were not many countries having it available. The Middle East, Canary Islands, Portugal and then Latin America. 10205 units were produced between 1972 and 1976. It's believed to be the nicest car ever made by Volkswagen.
