Limited-edition VW Beetle Fender revealed

VW Beetle Fender has been created in conjunction with the guitar maker

This is the limited-edition Volkswagen Beetle Fender, which has been created in conjunction with the legendary guitar maker.

The Beetle Fender is only available with the 138bhp diesel engine, so it’s fitting that the car can only be had in VW’s Deep Pearl Black paint finish. Buyers can choose between a six-speed manual or DSG dual clutch gearboxes.

As well as the black paint, the Fender edition’s exterior gets a rear wing, retro 18-inch alloys and a Fender badge on each front wing.

Inside, as you’d expect, the car features a 400-watt Fender stereo, complete with boot-mounted subwoofer and illuminated front speaker mountings, which is normally a £520 optional extra. The entire dash panel also features what VW calls a “vibrant sunburst wood, just like a classic Fender guitar.”

The Beetle Fender also comes fitted with climate control, front and rear parking sensors, xenon headlights and a unique cloth interior trim.

Order books open on 2 January and production is very limited, although VW UK is currently unsure of just how many cars it will receive.

However, with prices starting from £23,015 for the manual and £24,610 for the DSG model, the Fender is better value than the Beetle Sport on which it’s loosely based. It should have better residual values, too, as it’s a limited-run car.
