Karmann Ghia Owners Club

Welcome to the Clubs official website where passion for the famous Karmann Ghia in all its forms unites owners, past, present and future along with enthusiasts of everything air-cooled.
Although our cars are precious, we hope we are not precious about our cars! We want to encompass all aspects of Karmann Ghia’s ; from the purists who want to see original cars to those whose interests include customisation, lowering, performance modifications and restorations.
Whether you own a car, aspire to owning a car or just want to share in the enjoyment of learning about the famous Karmann Ghia, the club will have something to offer you. This includes technical advice, valuable insight on buying or importing a car, meeting members at shows and events or simply enjoying the quarterly full colour magazine as well as taking advantage of the many other benefits the club has to offer which can be viewed on the Membership page.

We hope that – having read a little about the club and the cars – you will want to join the Karmann Ghia Owners Club (GB) and link up with other like-minded automotive enthusiasts where emphasis is placed on community and support.
This extends from the club supporting its members to members supporting the club, with the committee being made up of volunteers whose devotion and dedication have ensured the club continues to thrive whilst enjoy a growing membership of well over 500 subscriptions from around the world.
So, enjoy the website and we look forward to officially welcoming you as part of our Karmann Ghia family.

Have a look around – enjoy what you see – and we hope to meet up with you soon!


We welcome members from the UK and around the world. Whether you aspire to, or already own a Karmann Ghia you are most welcome. In fact if you are looking for a car then the club is a great place to find out what to look for when buying and also contact members who may be selling their car. If you have a car already then joining the club will give you access to discounts on parts, service and insurance and allow you to find out about activities you can join in with in your car. Please see the Membership page for more details.


The club participates in various events around the country. Some are VW specific and others more general. Why not see whats happening on our ‘Events’ diary and join us. We also run a major weekend event each June which is open to non-members who attend in their Karmann Ghia.


With decades of experience our members have a vast depth of knowledge about the Karmann Ghia. We can give advice on many issues and advise where to get further help if you need it. We even have a book called Techy Tips with gives some great ideas and solutions to help you get the most out of your car.


The club has two “shops”. Our main SHOP sells merchandise related to the Karmann Ghia including clothing with the club logo etc. We also stock some difficult to get parts, including remanufactured items we have arranged, or advice on where to get specific parts, and this is through our Spares Advisor.
