I once read about the SP2, people in Brazil jokingly say that SP stands for Sam Potententia "no power".

pretty unknown VW the SP2 developt for the brasil market, it was planed to become a world car but changed safty regulations mainly in the USA and Germany with new minimum high of the front lights stoped that plan, ~10,200 SP2 were build between 1972 and 1976. Only 681 SP2 were ever exportet from VW Brasil. they even developt a stronger version with water cooled inline4 engines but they only build one prototype of the SP3
