Volkswagen Beetle 53 Edition

Volkswagen has announced details of a Beetle 53 Edition in acknowledgement of Herbie, the iconic machine first seen in the 1968 movie, The Love Bug.

Created for the Spanish market, the body is painted in white with those familiar red, white and blue tri-colour striping running down the flanks and across the boot lid, roof and hood, which also features that racing-style number 53. A set of 17-inch alloy wheels inspired by the original Type One’s items complete the exterior, while inside the cabin the glove box bears exclusive Beetle 53 badging.

Standard equipment includes tyre pressure monitoring and the Park Pilot Assist system, with engine options consisting of a 1.2 TSI and 1.6 TDI both developing 77 kW (105 hp) and a 103 kW (140 hp) 2.0 TDI. Pricing starts at €22,090.
