In love with the Cal Look and searching for the next piece in your high-performance puzzle?

Whether it is the form or function of Beetle Decklid Standoffs that tickle your fancy, these beautifully engineered offerings from Vintage Speed will be right up your strasse.

Produced from stainless steel, the Vintage Speed latch extensions fit at the base of the decklid and allow for the lid to still shut and lock but with a 3in ventilation gap around the bottom.

Alternatively, as a less permanent addition, their standoff which attaches to the engine lid lock is a great quick fix on hot days.

The base standoffs are listed for 47-53, 54-64, 65-67 and 68-79 models and the decklid mounted item for 50-64 cars. All are held in stock by official Vintage Speed distributor, Heritage Parts Centre, and for less than £40 a piece they could be arriving on your doorstep within a matter of days.

To order give them a call on 01273 444 000 or log onto and search for AC82710 to see the full range.
