Volkswagen launches New Beetle Black Orange special edition, goes for a little Porsche look |

While popular with retro fans, the Volkswagen New Beetle wasn’t really the hit the German company wanted. Who knows, maybe the next generation will be different, but until then, VW has announced a new special edition of the small city car, dubbed the Black Orange.

While we’ve seen a few other special New Beetle editions, this one is quite interesting, as the exterior will be offered in a choice of either black, with white stripes on the side or orange with black stripes, managing to pull off a classic Porsche look.

The special edition will be available for both the hatch and the convertible verison of the New Beetle, and will also arrive with a set of 17-inch five-spoke alloy wheels on the outside and for the interior, a three-spoke, leather-wrapped steering wheel, aluminum pedals and sport seats, all featuring orange stitching.

Starting at a hefty €22,550 (around $33,800) for the hatch model with the 1.6-liter petrol engine developing 102 HP, the New Beetle Black Orange will also feature standard equipment like A/C, an upgraded audio system, armrest and electric windows.

Does this funky new edition spark your interest or is the Beetle a lost cause in your view? Don’t be shy and leave a comment below.
