2013 VW Beetle Convertible '60s edition [HD]

By YouCar

The New Beetle Convertible was not a straight copy of the original, but a reinterpretation and development of it. And that's the case with the third-generation Beetle Convertible. Klaus Bischoff, Head Designer, Volkswagen Brand says: "Retro is not our thing: we are always looking forward. Volkswagen has reinterpreted the Beetle Convertible's timeless design with a sportier and more dynamic silhouette, just as it did with the Beetle Coupe. The car is substantially wider, has a longer hood, and has a more upright windshield that sits further back than before. The standard rear spoiler reinforces the car's sporty look." At launch, there will be three special edition Beetle Convertibles that evoke three distinct decades in American cultural history—the 1950s, the 1960s, and the 1970s. The '50s Edition Beetle Convertible is classic and classy in black with a tan interior. The '60s Edition has groovy two-tone seats and Denim Blue paint that gives a nod to blue jeans, the most ubiquitous fashion statement of the era. And the '70s Edition Convertible harks back to the more sophisticated side of the decade with a Toffee Brown exterior and chrome-look disc wheels. The topline Beetle Turbo starts at $31,195 and adds: leather seating surfaces, door trims, and dashboard; sport seats; and the RNS 315 navigation system. The '60s Edition has two-tone leather seats and Denim Blue paint: available only with the DSG transmission, it is priced at $32,395. ► http://www.facebook.com/youcarpress
