Final Beetle unveiled


Volkswagen has revealed the Final Editions of its New Beetle

The Final Edition Beetles boast a unique Aquarius Blue paint job, 17-inch alloy wheels, a sport suspension, special badging, and an individually numbered steering wheel.

The New Beetle and New Beetle convertible are equipped with a 2.5-litre inline five-cylinder petrol engine that reportedly produce 150hp and 170 lb-ft of torque.

According to Volkswagen of America CEO Mark Barnes, "Since its launch in 1998, the New Beetle - and the New Beetle convertible that later followed - have connected generations of fans that love the cars' totally unique styling and characteristics that are simply unmatched." He added, "The Final Editions combine all of the elements that best represent what people love the most about the New Beetle, and that have created the car's legacy, which will live on in generations to come."

The New Beetle is set to go on sale in the US in 2010, but production will be limited to 1500 units each.
