For those of you who really want to relive the past, VW is releasing a 1970's retro edition of it's already retro New Beetle. Beginning this week, only 3,000 Triple White New Beetles will be released into the wild, with a white trifecta for the paint job, seating surfaces, and convertible roof boot. To make all that white really stand out, VW added black to the roof, footwells, door panels, and dash. The limited edition Beetle hearkens back to days gone by in many ways, except price. The New Bug will set you back a much more modern $26,630.

The original Beetle didn't have "leatherette" seating surfaces or 17" Oktopus rims, but we sure do like the pricing of the old Super Beetle Convertible better than the new Triple White New Beetle. VW won't have too many problems finding 3,000 takers, though.
