A re-imagining of the classic VW Camper/Microbus could be on the cards, if reports from the LA motor show are to be believed.

The VW Camper is one of those iconic designs that companies are often threatening to resurrect and this time it's the turn of VW chief designer, Klaus Bischoff. He told Auto Express that "I would not be doing my job, at Volkswagen, properly if I was not thinking of bringing back the Camper."

The big question, apparently, is what form it would take. "It could be a traditional MPV, with a conventional interior," said Bishop. "Or we could be much bolder, designing a more flexible, versatile machine - perhaps one that is closer in spirit to the original model."

If it ends up looking anything like the stunning concept from the 2001 Detroit show, We'll be pretty impressed.

However, we'll be even more impressed if it comes out like this 1700bhp dragster called 'Mental Breakdown'.

And yes, if you're wondering, this whole story is largely an excuse to post this pic and video of the creation of Warwickshire's Wayne Allman. Although we doubt very much that a new Microbus would get an 8.4-litre supercharged V8...

Haha that is brilliant.

They need to somehow make the front more streamlined.
