It doesn't look real. It looks like a very good digitization, maybe for a video game.

Also, the center cutout of the Kubel rim is round, which is a giveaway.

hadn't clocked the wheel centres! looked too clean and crisp to me so I was suspicious. if it's a digitisation - jeez it's getting scary. fake history follows shortly...

update - just checked back to the source of the photo and the guy who posted it is standing by the drivers door and hasn't aged a bit - also thinking the wheels could be land-rover ones.

yes, chrome 'nipple' hub caps place it about '47 and the first 'export' cars. I wonder if it is anything connected with a man called Colborne Baber who dealt with the first cars in the uk and even converted them to rhd...for an extra 15 quid!

a well known car in the uk is JLT420 a two tone blue 47 beetle that was owned by colborne baber himself.

just stumbled across these photos of two(?) 1949 coupes built by Karl Meier (Kamei) and Heinrich Schwen and funded by Peter Lorenz.

KdF-Wagen on display in Nürnberg, Germany, in August, 1938. The car is pictured with its SS security detail, along with traditional "folk maidens."
