Volkswagen has a long history in Brazil and is after Germany and China the most important market for this global car manufacturer. Volkswagen Brasil was founded in 1953 and has developed its own car models and variants suitable for various markets in Latin America and Africa, replacing or complementing models designed for Europe. Although most famous for the Kombi, Volkswagen has developed several unique models to the Brazilian market like the Volkswagen SP1 and SP2. Strict Brazilian import regulations encouraged also the domestic automobile production and resulted in the development of the Puma that was produced between 1966 and 1995.

Kombi Warriors: the classic car specialist from Brazil
Maybe the most famous and sought after classic car from Brazil is the first generation of the Volkswagen Type 2 with the split windshield, or the Kombi T1. It is currently highly prized among classic car collectors and classic cars investors alike. Production of the Kombi T1 started in 1950 in Europe and in 1957 in Brazil and while the German production stopped in 1967, the Kombi T1 still was made in Brazil until 1975. Brazil is one of the few places where it is still possible to find Kombis T1 for affordable prices.

Puma sports car
The impressive history of the classic car Puma began in 1964, in the city of Matão, in the interior of São Paulo, when a group of motorsport enthusiasts, led by Rino Malzoni, decided to create a sports car. Already in 1965, the first prototype of the “GT Malzoni” was displayed. In 1967 the model, renamed as Puma, goes into production. In 1971, the production of the Puma GTS / GTE line started. The sports car from Brazil became very sought after. This thanks to its spectacular design, which until today impresses by the beauty, aggressiveness and aerodynamics. The Puma sports car was exported to countries in Europe and Africa. In 1985 Puma was sold to Araucária Veículos, in Curitiba, which interrupts production. Then in 1987, the businessman Nívio de Lima buys the Puma car brand and builds a new factory, also in the City of Curitiba. In 1988 the Puma GTB is relaunched. But in 1989, with the opening of the market, Japanese cars overshadowed the brilliance of the new Puma sports cars, which were eventually discontinued in 1990. In total around 22,000 units of the Puma sports car were manufactured. The Puma is a wanted object nowadays among classic car collectors. Kombi Warriors is specialized in sourcing unique Puma models through our extensive network in Brazil.
We have a wide portfolio of different models of the sports car Puma ready for export!
In the 70s, the Brazilian market was closed for car imports and at that time the only sports car made in Brazil was the Volkswagen Karmann Ghia. Volkswagen Brasil always had some degree of independence from the head office in Germany and so in 1969 Volkswagen Brasil decided to start a new project. The result was the Volkswagen SP2 that was produced between 1972 and 1976. Only a total of 10,207 units were manufactured (670 of them exported to Europe). This classic car from Brazil is now valued as a collector’s item and the prices of a well preserved VW SP2 can be very high.
Volkswagen Karmann Gia
Karmann-Ghia is a sports car produced by Volkswagen, designed by the Italian company Carrozzeria Ghia, and built by the German company Karmann. It was first produced in Germany. The company’s growth plans in Brazil made Volkswagen to decide to produce it locally. In 1960 Karmann opened a factory in São Bernardo do Campo, São Paulo, and in 1962 the first Brazilian Karmann-Ghia left the assembly line, very similar to the model sold in the European market. About 445,000 Karmann-Ghias were produced between 1955 and 1975. The classic car VW Karmann-Ghia is really a beauty of elegance. The American industrial designer Walter Dorwin Teague included the classic car Karmann Ghia in his list of the world’s most beautifully designed products. The Karmann-Ghia was used in some films like Death Race 2000, Pretty in Pink, Kill Bill, 007 against Octopussy and Zodiac. At the end of 2016 the story of Karmann-Ghia ended for good when bankruptcy was declared in Brazil.
