The Volkswagen [2] Beetle is an iconic piece of car design, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be repurposed to look even better. Bokja Design took a classic Beetle and decorated it in car stickers, tapestries, and handmade vintage fabrics from the Middle East as part of an exhibition at Milan Design Week [3]. The result: an ultra-colorful car that is sure to attract inquisitive stares from passers-by.

The car was sold last week in an eBay auction for 1,004 euros, all of which will go to Fondazione Francesca Rava to help Haiti [5]‘s children. What do you think–would you drive around in this fabric-covered Beetle?
