Volkswagen Beetle

Volkswagen Beetle

Volkswagen has had a couple of goes at bringing back one of the most iconic cars ever built. The latest version, known simply as the Beetle, was released in 2013, but underperformed on the sales front and was dropped at the end of 2016.

It’s actually not a bad car, though, as it sits on the same underpinnings as the Golf Mk V. This, of course, makes it a front-engined front-wheel-drive, as opposed to the rear-engined rear wheel drive of the 'Type 1' original. Volkswagen also tried the retro trick from 1997 to 2011, even fitting the New Beetle with a thin vase on the dashboard, complete with a fake sunflower that still survives in some examples 20 years later.

Currently, the line-up composes of one car, the Beetle CLASSIC which is priced at $36,990.

This vehicle is also known as Beetle / Super Beetle, Bug / Superbug", Käfer, Type 1, 1302.
