IOW, if you have to ask, you can't afford it.

OTOH, they probably don't work in carbon fiber, and surely don't in basalt fiber.

Were one to create an .STL file from a game asset or something, it could be 3D printed at 110% to increase flotation.

I didn't make it to the Bug Run or the Portland Roadster Show this year, but the videos are available. Silver Lining Restorations had their over-restored crew cab back (the only vehicle I remember from years past) but they also had this white Beetle (ignore thumbnail):

It has chrome rims with white centers like my Superbeetle had, but these are wide fives with some sort of trick riveting (else trim rings?) At 6:05 they show a Dove Blue panel van with bullet turn signals, much like the one I drove for (counts fingers and toes) about three decades. Mine was never that straight. ....or that blue.

Saturday I had a chat with a restaurant owner, whose 19y.o. son owns a '68 Beetle. He didn't know why sealed beams have those 3 tips at the lens, and many US-spec cars of the '90s still had even though they already had composite headlamps instead of sealed beams.

I've run Hella H-4s since the 1980s, when they were only legal in Oregon and Washington states. White light wall-to-wall and 80 feet tall, but with a good low beam cutoff.
