Irmscher Automobilbau GmbH is a German tuning company specializing in Opel models. However, it is not closed to experimenting with other manufacturers, and in this case it has dared with something unprecedented until now: a Volkswagen electric van that mixes a sportier appearance with a ‘camper’ kit with everything essential to travel.
This new Irmscher project is based, of course, on the Volkswagen ID. buzz electric. At Volkswagen they are already planning an ID. Buzz GTX more powerful, more performant and with a sportier appearance; but if you don’t want to wait for that version, this one here is the solution.
The German preparer has provided the ID. Buzz for a sportier and more aggressive image, with new, more prominent bumpers. It cannot be denied that its design is inspired by the ID.4/ID.5 GTX, with multiple small diamond-shaped openings that make up a larger air intake. The bumper is also complemented by a splitter front, side and rear skirts, a rear roof spoiler… And a 30mm lower bodywork.
According to Irimscher, the body kit has been optimized in the wind tunnel for better aerodynamics and, despite its appearance, meets crash protection regulations. The kit is accompanied by a two-tone white and gray paint, with orange details throughout the vehicle and black mirrors, and 19 or 20-inch wheels that can be finished in black or diamond finish. not missing a retro touch thanks to tire sidewall painted of White color. On the other hand, the Volkswagen emblems on the front hood and tailgate have been replaced by Irmscher ones.
The set of wheels costs 2,250 euros, while the body kit is offered for 3,450 euros. In total, 5,700 euros for a preparation that certainly gives the Volkswagen ID. Buzz with a more aggressive look but maintaining a certain elegance -from the tuning point of view-.
The body kit and paint set are certainly interesting; but Irmscher still wants to offer something more to increase the van’s practicality. For a price of 3,000 euros, the German trainer offers the ‘i-Box’, a country kit that includes a bed, sink, fridge and kitchen and that can be installed and/or removed in just 10 minutes.
