Aufbauend auf der technischen Basis des unverwüstlichen VW Käfer kam 1955 der erste Karmann-Ghia auf den Markt - und fuhr sich mit seiner attraktiven, sportlich-eleganten Karosserie direkt in die Herzen des Publikums. Ob als Coupé oder Cabriolet, er blieb fast 20 Jahre fester Bestandteil der Modellpalette und musste zum Leidwesen vieler Liebhaber dieses Autos schliesslich abtreten, als die Wolfsburger den revolutionären Wandel zum Golf vollzogen. Dieses neue Buch widmet sich detailliert der ungewöhnlichen Karmann-Ghia Story und geht sowohl auf den klassischen Typ 14 wie auch den von 1961-69 produzierten Typ 34 ein, der auf den Technikkomponenten des größeren VW 1500 fusste und niemals serienmässig als Cabriolet erhältlich war. Heute werden alle Karmann-Ghia Modelle als Liebhaberfahrzeuge hoch geschätzt und in restauriertem Zustand zu stattlichen Preisen gehandelt. Das Buch ist umfangreich mit historischem und aktuellem Bildmaterial versehen und wird abgerundet durch eine Kaufberatung sowie einen ausführlichen Datenteil.

The Volkswagen Karmann Ghia represents one of those unique collaborations between three companies in two different countries: the Volkswagenwerke in Wolfsburg, Germany and Wilhelm Karmann in Osnabruck, Germany, and the Ghia coachworks in Turin, Italy. It also represents the efforts of four men who have all gone down in automobile history for their achievements: Heinrich Nordhoff at VW, Wilhelm Karmann at Karmann, Mario Boano and Luigi Segre at Ghia. From the moment the pretty coupe walked onto the world's stage it went straight into the motoring Hall of Fame. Interestingly, where most coupes of the time had some pretense towards being sporting, generally with a mildly hotted up engine, the Karmann Ghia was simply stock VW Beetle from the mechanical point of view. In other words, it was still a 72-75mph car, it just looked great doing it! And that is why owners loved it. By 1961 VW introduced the Karmann 1500 based on the Type 3 platform to supplement the original. It was nowhere near as successful and was withdrawn from production in 1969, long before its older and more famous sibling. There is a strong and enthusiastic following for the Volkswagen Karmann Ghia coupe all around the world, a movement that seems to grow each year.
