About the Volkswagen New Beetle
The Volkswagen Beetle was developed in 1938 as Hitler's conception for a car for masses. 60 years later, the New Beetle, which featured many changes, made its appearance at the beginning of 1998. The rounded design of this new version clearly reflects the characteristic image of its predecessor. Mechanisms are brand new and the rear engine/rear drive has been changed to a front engine/front drive. Equipment for optimal safety has also been installed making this cute car even more charming.
