Beetle Fender Edition

The Beetle Fender Edition will be the only car in Europe that can be ordered with a sound system from guitar and amp makers Fender. The Beetle Fender Edition is another vehicle with strong ties to the world of rock 'n' roll. Just a week ago, Ferrari officially revealed rock icon Eric Clapton's custom-built Ferrari SP12 EC.

Volkswagen unveiled a Beetle Fender concept car at the IAA in Frankfurt that was designed to pay homage to the legendary American company. The concept car was such a big hit at the show that Volkswagen decided to bring the car to production.

The highlight of this special edition Beetle is the Fender audio system, packing 400 watts of power, nine speakers, a subwoofer and four deluxe tweeters. The car can be ordered in two special colors, ‘Black Uni’ or ‘Deep Black Pearl Effect’. The black color is designed to show off the 18-inch ‘Disc’ alloys and the other chrome trim on the outside.

Inside, the Beetle Fender Edition will feature a special dash pad with a chrome-plated Fender logo. It is finished in ‘Sunburst’, the two-tone wood design of many Fender guitars. The Beetle Fender Edition is being launched in the U.S. this fall. Pricing for the new Fender Edition has not yet been announced.
