The Kübelwagen Type 82 looks a lot like the much later Volkswagen Type 181 Thing, but it was developed by Ferdinand Porsche and build by Volkswagen using parts from the Type 1 Beetle at the request of Adolf Hilter way back in 1938.  The 82/3 version added a crazy faux armored vehicle look and a light machine gun turret with swively chair.

Out back was a big part of the reason for the low armor/curb weight -- a 1.1 liter aircooled flat-4 that pushed out 25 horsepower on a good day.   However, the little bucket-seat car proved to be a surprisingly good off-roader.  With a limited slip rear differential, gear reduction hubs, and decent ground clearance, the Kübelwagen could go just about anywhere a US Jeep could go.
