Volkswagen brings four special-edition Beetles to the 2015 New York auto show to celebrate 60 years in the American market.
At the 2015 New York auto show, Volkswagen is celebrating 60 years in the United States with four conceptual special-edition Beetles.
The pink metallic paint was chosen in response to a demand for a pink Beetle special edition. Beneath the pink hue are an aggressive R-line front and rear bumper.
VW is presenting the Pink Color Edition as a coupe, but when the model hits dealerships, it could end up as a convertible.
The Convertible Wave features habanero orange metallic paint on the outside, but it's the inside that makes this concept special edition... special.
The interior features a dashpad that is constructed of wood and is designed to resemble a surfboard. The Wave is a concept, but it complements the Dune special edition, which hits dealerships in 2016.
The Volkswagen Beetle Denim previews a special edition that is inspired by — you guessed it — blue jeans. The convertible features a dark-blue top that resembles denim and special stonewash-blue metallic paint.
The interior is also inspired by denim with light-blue fabric and dark-blue V-tex leatherette. Interestingly, it doesn't appear that VW uses any actual denim in the Denim special edition.
The R-Line concept starts by dropping VW's 2.0-liter turbocharged into the Beetle's chassis and then it beefs up that chassis with aggressive looks and aerodynamics.
The R-Line has an angry body kit, massive intakes up front and beefy wheels. Onyx white pearl effect paint and sporty graphics complete the looks.
Along with the Beetles, Volkswagen is also showcasing its new Golf SportWagen Alltrack, which is due at dealerships in 2016.
Based on the Golf SportWagen, the Alltrack features all-wheel drive and slightly more ground clearance.
Volkswagen claims the Alltrack boasts the "off-road capability and load-carrying capacity of a
compact SUV along with the on-road manners and fuel economy of a compact wagon."
