I was contacted by a Harlequin owner about 6 weeks ago who wanted to know if we could do a Harle design for their oft-ignored Mk3 niche. We kicked some ideas around as a group and shortly after I set to work. I really love automotive asterisks like the Harelquin, they are an interesting part of a manufacturer's history and often represent a specific period in time really well, like a rolling time capsule.
One of 8380's goals is to select noteworthy cars like these to highlight in our designs, and to showcase what it is that makes these cars so interesting and cool. For the One of One design I wanted to include something that paid homage the rarity of the cars. The problem is there is no hard and fast "official" number, so incorporating 1 of 264 could be controversial. The name is a play on the rarity and VW owners' individuality; regardless of having the same colorway as someone else, everyone makes their cars their own. One of One.
The design is currently available for PreOrder through January 26th, and will ship the week of February 14th.
