It appears the Dodge Viper isn’t the only model bowing out at the end of this year. Volkswagen’s iconic New Beetle, which has been on sale since 1998, is also set to meet that parking garage in the sky, and in the lead up to its demise the automaker is launching a new Final Edition version of both the Coupe and Convertible.

Available in the spring of 2010, only 1,500 Final Edition Coupes and another 1,500 Convertibles will be built. The Final Editions will receive a host of unique upgrades and touches that will set them apart from others cruising across the country.

On the outside, the Final Editions come dressed in special Aquarius Blue paint with a painted black roof on the Coupe, and a two-tone Aquarius Blue and Campanella White paint scheme with a white top on the Convertible.

Other touches include unique badging, fog lights integrated into the bumper, a sports suspension and special 17-inch wheels. Inside, there’s a custom Final Edition steering wheel, sumptuous white trim, and individually numbered badges.

Under the hood of both models is Volkswagen's 2.5-liter inline five-cylinder gasoline engine, with an output of 150 horsepower and 170 pound-feet of torque. A 6-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic pseudo manual control puts the power to the pavement. With the automatic transmission, the New Beetle can achieve an EPA-estimated 20 mpg in the city, and 29 mpg on the highway.

The 2010 Volkswagen New Beetle Coupe and New Beetle Convertible Final Editions will be available for $20,240 and $27,170 respectively.

  1. This one is so cute. I thought there is nothing that will be more admirable than the former car models of Volkswagen. Even if this is the last generation of the iconic models, this will lasts forever, like what happened to other Beetles. Bumblebee might be very envious by now.

    Bad stuff?

  2. Hi,
    Have you seen the movie, Cars? This is something like one of the characters there. If you want to be more masculine, this is something you should not buy. This looks like a toy, toy for the not so big boys.
