Volkswagen Beetle Final Edition
In 2003 Volkswagen produced a run of old-style Beetles in a plant in Mexico, the last place in the world where the old Beetles were still made, called the "Ultima Edicion," of "Final Edition."

The light blue Beetles marked the end of an era. After 70 years in continuous production, the old-style rear-engined Beetle would be no more.

Now, after a much shorter run of just 12 years, the ens has come for the New Beetle. So Volkswagen unveiled the powder-blue and white Final Edition New Beetle at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

The cars will be available in both convertible and hard-top forms. Both will have sport suspension and 150-horsepower five-cylinder engines. They'll get 29 mpg on the highway and 20 in the city.
