Flatout 1 used to have Beetles in early WIP screenshots

It's a shame they didn't make it in the actual game, couldn've been an alternative to the Pepper. But then VW might've sued Bugbear then.


Cool! I didn't know that! :D

Isn't the rear engine car we've seen in the trailers pretty much a Beetle/Imp clone though?




Screams more Fiat than VW for me

I wonder if that car is still sitting on some Dev's hard drive or on a thumb drive somewhere, along with all of those sweet alpha paintjobs.


How I wish it was so ::)
Whelp, there's always the FOJ. Shoutout to the VW Bug model for FO1.


I look through our custom car download section for Flatout 1 and do not see VW bug. I look through the many patch files I have for Flatout 1 FOv3 mod and don't see and VW bug. I do not remember racing with the VW bug in Flatout 1, but I could be wrong. Maybe there was a VW bug uploaded to K. C. site.

Now in Flatout 2, there are 2 VW bugs. One an offroad version and one new modern version.

That NCG car is a FIAT 850.
Playing Flatout online has made me hate people who can't speak English and shove their nationalities in your face.

So, maybe there would be a own event for these supersmall-no-power cars like the VW Beetle, Citroën 2 CV, Fiat 850, Daihatsu Midget I, ...?

1+ for the Beetle

Would be just another weak car but with great moveability.

Hahahah, another vote for Daihatsu Midget from me. How long can you keep it on the three wheels?  :D

I actually meant VW Beetle, sorry. Is there a difference between VW Bug and Beetle?

Bug/Beetle, same name. Just I don't know for sure there was a custom VW beetle/bug done for Flatout 1.

Whelp, there's always the FOJ. Shoutout to the VW Bug model for FO1.

Hmm, did I miss understand your post? Did Shoutout mean the Bugbear bug that did not get release in Flatout 1?   :-[

Cool! I didn't know FO1 had beetles originally.
That yellow car that looks like a Fiat also looks like a variety of Russian cars, and a bit like a VW type III.

I also wonder why the beetles were removed...

I think they just used the beta as a way to get a publishing deal. Then the publisher demanded they got more muscle cars just to appeal to the mass market.

Unlike today that is, we could likely get that dream Beetle in NCG now that Bugbear is working alone.
