Herbie, that loveable Volkswagen Beetle that starred in a series of Disney movies, was at least ostensibly a race car. The latest Beetle special edition from Volkswagen, the just-for-Spain Beetle Edition 53, on the other hand, is all sizzle and no steak. The Edition 53 package carries stripes, "53" numbers, and is expressly not available with the turbocharged engine; you know, the engine that would actually lend an air of raciness to the Beetle's performance.
The 2013 Volkswagen Beetle Fender Edition was announced back in May, and with the car hitting dealers soon, VW has finally released the pricing for the guitar-inspired Bug. There will be two versions of this new model: the Beetle 2.5L Fender Edition starting at $24,440 and the Beetle Turbo Fender Edition going for $28,130. These prices are for manual transmission-equipped models and (*) do not include the $795 destination charge.
