Volkswagen will introduce a special Herbie-inspired 53 Edition of its latest Beetle. For now it appears the model will only be offered for sale in Spain.
As you’d expect the latest ‘Love Bug’ features blue and red decals over a white body and the the number 53 proudly displayed on the bonnet and rear hatch. Beetle 53 badging also appears internally.
Engine options start with a 77kW 1.2 litre TSI engine and a 1.6 litre TDI also offering 77kW. Volkswagen’s latest 2.0 TDI, developing 103kW, tops the 53 Edition range, which is priced from €22,090.
Oh, if you’re wondering, the ‘Escarabajo’ badging on the back, simply translates from Spanish into English as ‘Beetle’.
