The Rometsch 'Beeskow' named after its designer Johannes Beeskow, also affectionately known as the 'banana' due to its big curved look, was another coach built car based on the VW Beetle. It was expensive and owners included Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn. VW refused to sell Beetles to Rometsch so they had to be creative and buy the donor cars through their employees. Later Johannes Beeskow moved to the Karmann company in Osnabrück as their department manager of technical research.
