Special Edition 2013 VW Beetle pays tribute to Herbie, only for Spain

VW is bringing back the classic Disney “Herbie” character with the Beetle Edition 53.

Paying homage to the original Herbie from the 1968 film “The Love Bug” and its several following sequels, the VW gets its exterior coated in Herbie’s colors. All white paint is accented with red and blue stripes on the hood, doors and rear tailgate. The “Escarabajo” (Beetle in Spanish) logo is on the tailgate as well as the number “53” on the hood.

Standard for the car is a set of 17-inch wheels, a tire pressure monitor and Park Pilot parking assist sensor.

The Volkswagen Beetle Edition 53 is only available in Spain and comes with four powertrain options. The variants start with the 1.2-liter TSI petrol and go up to 2.0-liter TDI mated to a 6-speed DSG transmission, with prices starting at $28,400.
