LA Auto Show 2009: Volkswagen reveals Final Edition New Beetle collection, marks the end of the generation


During the 2009 edition of the Los Angeles Auto Show, Volkswagen took the chance to introduce the last (hopefully) special edition of its New Beetle model, which marks the end of the current generation which despite bearing the iconic name, hasn’t really been a hit.

The Final Edition New Beetles will come in coupe and convertible flavors, each in a limited run of 1,500 units. They will all be powered by the 2.5-liter inline-five cylinder unit, which developrs 150 HP and is coupled to a six-speed Tiptronic automatic gearbox that sends the power to the front wheels. Speaking of wheels, they will be feature a unique set 17-inch alloy rims, coupled to a new sport suspension.


In terms of looks, the new Final Edition will featured an Aquarius Blue paint job, with the hardtop model sporting a black roof and integrated fog lights, as opposed to the convertible, which goes for a two-tone look, alternating the Aquarius Blue with Campanella White, the former stretching out to cover the folding canvas top.

You should also expect special badging to adorn the interior of the models, which start from $20,240 for the coupe and $27,170 for the convertible.
