This is how you want your VW drop-top to be. You start with the
final year of the evolution - the 1979 Volkswagen Super Beetle
Convertible - and then give it investments to keep this
richly-colored car a great all-around cruiser.
This VW has a crisp and clean look inside and out, and so it's at
the premium end of classic Bugs. The paint sets the tone for that
correctly. After all, we all love a red convertible, and this gives
you that boldness, but with deeper and more sophisticated tones. It
has a vibrant metallic element, and the glossy finish does a
terrific job of showing off Volkswagen's iconic curves. This car is

The clean black roof looks great against the darker red paint. And
it even goes with the classic black running boards and upgraded
tinted windows for a well-coordinated style. But really, a car like

a smooth dash complete the full quality feel. There are nice
details everywhere from the working clock to the clean trunk up
front. And the upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo means you get the best in

example seen here was the final evolution for the Beetle. This has
the clean look of a well-maintained style. It makes for a car that
fires up easily and idles nicely. So you get the best original
style-power to pair with the sturdy and versatile four-speed manual
transmission. In total, this package allows you to confidently get
the most out of the motor. Plus, as a Super Beetle, you have the
MacPherson strut independent front suspension, and modern touring
