Volkswagen Sambabus Typ 2 (T1) ’62

The Pimp Bus is back! Gold and chrome everything. This time with gold wheels and gold brakes! Known officially (depending on body type) as the Transporter,Kombi or Microbus, or, informally, as the Bus (US) or Camper (UK), in GT6 the Volkswagen Sambabus Typ 2 (T1) ’62 is the official Pimp Bus. If you remember from GT5 I originally made a Pimp Bus tune that was for pure fun for driving on two wheels and just getting crazy. It’s basically mandatory to paint to something crazy with insane rims to impress people online with. Wasn’t actually useful for anything else in GT5 however this time around I decided to slam it down and make it into a drift machine. At least now you can use it online against people and blow their minds when they see this crazy van volkswagen made years ago rejuvenated into a drift beast. It is still more for fun as it can drift and I have drift entire tracks without stopping, but you really have to work for it due to the low horsepower. Great for fun and it would be hilarious to see a whole room of tricked out buses drifting around a track. Posted by Onnimaru/Shmogt

I took a lot of really awesome pictures of this van which can be seen at the Team Shmo tumblr
