The Beetle is the first and to date only car in Europe that can be ordered with a sound system from guitar and amp makers Fender®. In 2011, Volkswagen showcased a concept car at the IAA in Frankfurt that was designed to pay homage to the legendary American company. That was the exclusive Beetle Fender®. With its powerful looks and no less powerful sound system (400 watts), the concept car thrilled visitors to the show so much that Volkswagen decided to make it into a production car. That vehicle is now making its world premiere at AMI 2012. The new Beetle model can be ordered in two colours: ‘Black Uni’ or ‘Deep Black Pearl Effect’. Black has been chosen so that the Beetle Fender® Edition’s many chrome details – including 18-inch ‘Disc’ alloys as standard – are shown off to best effect. The standard specification includes bi-xenon headlamps and LED daytime running lights. The car’s interior also has a very refined appearance. One striking feature is the dash pad. Complete with chrome-plated Fender® logo, it is finished in ‘Sunburst’, the two-tone wood design of many Fender® guitars. Also included as standard are sport seats, air conditioning and, of course, the Fender® sound system with USB interface (media in). The Beetle Fender® Edition is being launched this autumn.
