Volkswagen Beetle Fender announced
The limited-edition Beetle comes in black, and adds a rear spoiler, 18-inch alloy wheels and 'Fender' badging on the front wings.
The biggest changes are to the interior, though, with the dashboard housing a panel of bright Fender guitar-inspired 'Sunburst' wood. Appropriately, it also comes with an upgraded 400-watt Fender sound system, complete with a boot-mounted subwoofer and illuminated front-speaker mountings.
The Beetle Fender also comes with dual-zone climate control, front and rear parking sensors and cloth seats with leather-look bolsters.
Just one engine option is offered – the 2.0-litre TDI 140 – while there is the choice of either the six-speed manual or the semi-automatic DSG gearbox.
Order books open on January 2, and the Beetle Fender costs £23,015 for the manual, and £24,610 for the DSG version.
