Volkswagen has announced the limited edition Beetle Fender, which comes equipped with an audio system developed by the eponymous guitar manufacturer.

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.

Volkswagen Beetle

The Volkswagen Beetle is only the third all-new model since the original launched in 1938. It is based on the Mk6 Golf, but the base car is far better

Nice - BUT ...

WAY too expensive for old technology (which is what the Beetle is based upon) ...

OK you've got me I'm a sucker for a piece of shiny wood. I even like bits of plastick made to look like shiny wood, I've got a room made of tacky dark plastics and fake wood trim from old Rovers. I have tried to seek help but the Psychiatrist just shook her head and said there was no help for me, in fact she wouldn't no couldn't give me eye contact after that. I know it's shameful but please don't turn your backs on me guys....guys?....hello is anyone there???
