Volkswagen began production of its new Beetle in 1997. Drawing details from the original Beetle’s design concept, this new model broke with tradition and installed its engine to the front enabling front wheel drive. With boot storage to the rear, it resembled many other small runabouts of its era, but with added quirky style and of course excellent VW mechanics. Throughout the Beetle’s production run, several special editions were launched, until manufacture ceased in 2011.
This inexpensive example looks very smart in its famous ‘Herbie’ livery. In presentable condition throughout, we are informed by its owner that the 1984cc engine and manual transmission produce a ‘nice, quiet drive’ and good performance, with all the refinements that one would expect of a modern era Beetle, such as a CD player with multi-changer. A lubrication service has recently been carried out and ‘Herbie’ is equipped with a new battery. There are no known mechanical faults.
The file contains the handbooks in their original wallet and the V5C registration certificate.
