Press Release) The New Beetle Cabriolet will begin the
next open-air season in an attractive, limited “Dark Flint” version:
the anthracite coloured open-top New Beetle will be available with a
garnet red hydraulically-operated top and Bordeaux red leather
interior trim in a limited series of 250 vehicles from January 2005.
The special model moves on 17-inch alloy wheels with colour-coordinated
trims to match the top. Design is the central focus of this model:
alongside the gearstick knob, hand brake lever handle and grab
handle in Bordeaux red leather, great importance has been given to
even the finest details, such as Bordeaux red seams on the
comfortable perforated leather seats, on the leather steering wheel
and on the leather centre arm rest.
Air-conditioning, Parkpilot, winter package (incl. heated front
seats and fog lights), “gamma” radio with CD player and 10 speakers,
windbreak and the Highline package complete this limited series,
making it a real eye-catcher. Not forgetting the flower vase of
course, which rounds off the unique appearance of the Cabrio.
Remote control central locking and electric windows are of course
