VW has released a new photo set that shows its new US special edition models -- Fahrenheit, Wolfsburg, and Triple White -- in greater detail, and we're able to learn a few more things as a result. First of all, the Triple White Beetle Convertible does not have a white top, which is what we theorized when the initial press release came out. For it to be truly "triple white" the roof boot must be fitted when the top's down. Another nice detail is the embossed Beetle Convertible icon on the driver and passenger headrests.

The two Fahrenheit editions are nicely done, with their namesake colors (orange for GTI and yellow for the GLI) appearing on door, dashboard and steering wheel inserts, as well as in the contrast stitching on the leather wrapping the handbrake, steering wheel and shifter boot. The insert on the bottom steering wheel spoke is emblazoned with the Fahrenheit logo and shows which number of the 1,200 cars made you're sitting in.

Finally, the Wolfsburg Edition Jetta looks just like a fairly nicely appointed Jetta. Heavy-duty floormats, leatherette seating, and open-spoke five-star wheels are the package highlights, so-to-speak, but if this wasn't wearing the Wolfsburg badging, it wouldn't stand out from any other 2.5L Jetta.

So while we'd pass on the Jetta Wolfsburg, we'd gladly welcome either Fahrenheit into the driveway. And while Triple White (with the roof boot on) Beetle ragtops clearly aren't for everyone, this attractive package is sure to appeal to Beetle aficionados. VW was obviously looking for a way to mix things up a little, and for the most part, we like the results.

Check out the photo gallery after the jump for all the new pics.

      In the past a wolfsburg edition ment that it was built in Germany. I wonder if that's the same with this wolfsburg?

      so...the wolfsburg edition only has bright chrome window trim only on the driver's side? The concept of must be asymmetry. That's first...

      I agree with Bill and Swift. The Jetta still resembles upscale Corolla and there is nothing Cool about Wolfsburg edition...well except the asymmetry...

      I like the color of the rabbit, but why not paint the black pieces on the bottom? The stock cars come all one color.

      And yet the ride height is still so astronomical. Easy to remedy, sure, but...shouldn't be so 4x4.
