FMS Automotive unveiled this awesome looking 1956 Beetle to this year’s SEMA Show, a fully restored car with a touch of the modern age. Their booth also came with a 2012 model for that “then and now” combination.

While the ‘56 was fully restored from the ground up, they also brought it into the modern age, with disc brakes on every corner. They also played with the engine but stopped short of turning this thing into a monster.
The styling is more modern and features a satin black paint accents, some chrome deletion and body colored front and rear bumpers.
