Brazil has always been an alternate reality for VWs, with their long-closed borders forcing all kinds of interesting mutations and developments of the old air-cooled VW line. Without foreign sports cars to import, VW Brasil made their own: the SP2. Parked, it was the fastest car you've ever seen.

This lovely, citrusy 1972 Volkswagen Type III Fastback is named Edna.
The SP2 was built on the Type III platform, and used the same flat-four, 1700cc "pancake" engine. Which made all of 75HP. Which gave the SP2 the Portuguese nickname "Sem Potência," which in English means "without power."
