The Beetle Fender is available in pearlescent black, and is fitted with a rear spoiler, 18in alloy wheels and Fender badging. The dashboard carries a ‘sunburst’ wood inlay in reference to the iconic finish of Fender’s Stratocaster guitars.
Fender’s 400-watt audio system features a boot-mounted subwoofer and illuminated front speaker mated to a colour touch screen. Other standard-fit equipment includes two-zone climate control, bi-xenon headlights and part-leather trim.
The limited edition Fender is available exclusively with a 2.0-litre TDI engine producing 138bhp, and the choice of a six-speed manual or DSG gearbox.
The Beetle Fender is priced at £23,015, with DSG models attracting a £1595 premium. Order books open on January 2.
