The Volkswagen Karmann Ghia is a sports car marketed in 2+2 coupe and convertible body styles by Volkswagen, from 1955-1974.
The Karmann Ghia combined the chassis and mechanicals of the Type 1 (Beetle) with styling by Luigi Segre of the Italian carrozzeria Ghia and hand-built bodywork by the German coach-builder Karmann. The Karmann Ghia was internally designated the Type 14.
More than 445,000 Karmann Ghias were produced in Germany over the car's production life.
American industrial designer Walter Dorwin Teague included the Karmann Ghia in his list of the world's most beautifully designed products.
