2012 Volkswagen Beetle Long Term Road Test

2012 Volkswagen Beetle Turbo: Wolfsburg Panzer

May 15, 2012


An amazing transformation of the Volkswagen Beetle. A stretched nose and a chopped turret-style top have made this into a big serious car instead of a small cheerful one.

With this car's glossy black paint, dark windows, zippy wheels and an interior overlaid with chrome accents and faux carbon-fiber trim, this is the most thoroughly stylized car in the Volkswagen portfolio, a kind of Wolfsburg panzer.

Assuming of course that a Beetle made into a panzer is what you want.
