Puebla, Mexico, where Volkswagen has built cars since , has been a home to the VW Beetle for more than 50 years. Long after production of the original Beetle ended in Germany in , the car continued to be built in Puebla and sold in Mexico—until When reborn as the New Beetle for , the model was built exclusively in Puebla and exported around the world (mostly to the United States) before finally going out of production in The latest Beetle (no longer New) debuted for , and it, too, is a product of Puebla, built on the same line as the Tiguan in the massive complex, which also makes Golfs, Jettas, and other models.

VW has a history of ushering the Beetle off the stage with special models. For the original, air-cooled version, was the final model year in the United States, and those Bugs were all triple-white convertibles. In Mexico, production of the original Beetle ended with the Última Edición, which was available in Harvest Moon Beige or Aquarius Blue. When it was time for the New Beetle to make its exit, in , Volkswagen rolled out a Final Edition with special color schemes—Aquarius Blue with a black roof panel for the coupe, Aquarius Blue and Campanella White two-tone for the convertible.

And, now that the current Beetle has entered its last model year, Volkswagen is again doing a Final Edition, available as both coupe and convertible, and it consists of special trim, equipment, and colors but is mechanically unchanged from the regular car.

Volkswagen invited us to drive the Final Edition Beetle on the car's home turf, during Mexico's Día de los Muertos celebration. The combination was novel but also fitting, given the degree to which the Beetle has become a part of Mexican culture, including the original's longtime use as taxicabs in Mexico City. The first-generation, air-cooled Beetle is still a common sight in Mexico, where it's colloquially called the Vocho.

Our drive was confined to the new Final Edition, which comes in both hardtop and convertible body styles. Like all Beetles, it's powered by a hp turbocharged liter inline-four, driving its front wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission. (The manual gearbox bowed out in ) This engine replaced the previous turbocharged liter four last year and has been the Beetle's sole offering since then. In our test of a hardtop, it pulled the Bug from zero to 60 mph in seconds and through the quarter-mile in seconds at 91 mph. What those numbers don't reflect is the sometimes frustrating nature of this engine's power delivery. Although its peak torque of lb-ft is available at only rpm, the turbo seems to spool up slowly, and when you're on the move, calls for more acceleration are answered lazily. The powertrain feels more energetic when pulling away from a stop. The six-speed may be down on ratios compared to more modern automatics, but we really can't fault its behavior, as it's willing to downshift when prodded and is generally smooth in operation. Fuel economy is 26 mpg city and 33 mpg highway, according to EPA methodology.

The mean streets of greater Puebla feature plenty of rough pavement with potholes that rival some of Detroit's finest. But whether riding on the SE model's inch wheels or the SEL's 18s, the Beetle takes the tattered tarmac in stride, shrugging off most bumps without transmitting any harshness to the cabin. Despite the supple suspension, body motions are effectively damped. Responsive, nicely weighted steering is another component of the well-tuned chassis.

The specialness of the Final Edition is not in the way it drives, however. It's primarily the interior finishes. Even the SE looks fancy with its cloth seats in black and tan with rhombus-patterned contrast stitching, while the SEL Final Edition features diamond-patterned stitching on its black and tan—or all black—leather seats. Both models are further dressed up with a tan-colored dash insert, pedals trimmed in stainless steel, and gloss-black finish for the center console and upper door panels. The net effect is a premium-looking interior, although the inch touchscreen is smallish for a model. Any Beetle is roomy inside—at least up front—and relatively easy to see out of, although all Beetles augment the generally good outward visibility with standard blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert this year.

Outside, the Final Edition's two exclusive hues—Aquarius Blue and Safari Uni (tan)—nod to colors of previous last-of-the-line Beetles. Black, white, and gray also can be had. The SE Final Edition gets spoke inch wheels, while the SEL's 18s feature a more retro-looking chrome center disc with a white-painted wheel.

The good news is that the Beetle's funereal finery doesn't cost a lot. In fact, it comes at a discount. The standard Beetle coupe and convertible are available in S and SE trim levels; the Final Edition SE costs $ less than the regular SE convertible and $ less than the SE coupe. The Final Edition also is available as an SEL—which is the only SEL Beetle for —and it brings the aforementioned inch wheels; bixenon headlights with LED daytime running lights, taillights, and license-plate lights; fog lights; navigation; Fender premium audio; front and rear audible parking aids; and leather.

The latest Beetle traded less on nostalgia than did its New Beetle predecessor, but style still has played no small part for those choosing a Beetle over its more practical—and excellent—showroom sibling, the Golf. So it's not hard to imagine that same audience falling for the Final Edition, if only for its nicer interior. They'll have until next summer to grab one, at which point the Beetle is, again, muerto. At least until its possible return in all-electric form on Volkswagen's new EV platform. Because the Beetle, it seems, never stays dead for long.

Be Smart, Check in Advance. CARFAX — Your Vehicle History.

CARFAX — Your Vehicle History Expert

Sometimes what you don't know can't hurt you, but that's not the case when buying a used car. As an independent vehicle history provider, at CARFAX we've made it our mission to tell you everything you need to know by uncovering as many events as possible from the previous life of a used car. Our primary goal is to help you get to know your next car from the inside out before deciding to make an investment that will be part of you and your family's everyday life. We believe your next car shouldn't be hiding anything from you.

CARFAX Vehicle History Reports contain over 28 billion historical records from 20 European countries, the US and Canada, which are updated daily with new information.

Even if you live in a country we don't collect vehicle data from, it's still always worth checking the Vehicle Identification Number without obligation. The used car import and export market is booming and many owners would be surprised to find out exactly what happened to their vehicle during its previous life abroad.

Privacy for Customers — Transparency over Vehicles

Let's be clear: Although we strive to find every detail of a vehicle's life so far, we are focused only on the vehicle's history, and do not collect any information on previous owners. The information we provide relates solely to the vehicle, its odometer reading, any accidents that have been covered up, where the vehicle comes from and much more — it never gets personal. We've uncovered irreparable damage several times in the past, but other times our vehicle history checks draw a blank — and sometimes that's actually a good thing.

Second Hand — Not Second Best

Did you know that considerably more used cars are sold than new cars? We think this second-hand system is nothing short of fantastic. However, it goes without saying that it gives rise to different methods and tactics: Some sellers will disguise a car that's been in an accident under a fresh coat of paint, tamper with the odometer or conceal theft. This is one of the less appealing aspects of buying second hand. Our goal is to establish trusting relationships between buyers and sellers, since this is the best way to help customers make the right decision. Your new car should be reliable and make you feel safe, as well as make you feel like you haven't paid too much.

But more than anything else, we don't want you or your family unknowingly sitting behind the wheel of a vehicle that isn't 100% safe. This is why we strive to take these vehicles off the road, which not only makes the used car market safer but our streets safer too.

CARFAX — 35+ Years of Experience in Vehicle Histories

CARFAX was founded in the US in 1984 and expanded into Europe in 2007. Around 100 team members spread across six European offices process vehicle information from 22 countries.

Fostering strategic partnerships with registration authorities, law enforcement agencies, government departments, insurance companies, inspection centers and numerous other leading companies around the world has enabled us to compile a unique international database for vehicle histories. We use this database to help make the used car market more transparent. We give everyone in the process of buying a used car access to what is currently the world's most comprehensive source for vehicle history reports, and is growing day by day.

We remain neutral and independent despite our partnerships — our sole purpose is help customers make an informed choice and ensure their safety and the safety of their family. This includes never collecting any personal details — we do not accept any PII from data sources amongst the information we provide about a vehicle. We ensure that data protection laws are observed at all times. Furthermore, we always collect our data in compliance with legal and regulatory frameworks — in all the countries in which we are active. We expressly distance ourselves from illegal activities such as data theft, scraping and hacking.

A VW Beetle enthusiast gets her dream car after 12 years of saving

At 15 years old, Tiera Powers vowed she would one day own a Volkswagen New Beetle GLS convertible with an Aquarius Blue coat. Never losing sight of her goal, she saved for over a decade to buy her dream baby blue Beetle. “I always loved how the Beetle stood out in a crowd … It’s so unique,” said Powers, now

Powers was inspired to start her Beetle fund after spotting her ideal ride while out shopping with her mother for a family car in The Upstate New York teen couldn’t keep her eyes off the shiny new Bug parked across the street in the lot of a Schenectady County Volkswagen dealership.

Even though Powers didn’t have a job &#; or even a driver’s license &#; at the time, she was committed to making her vision a reality. “I decided right there I was going to get a job to buy that car,” she recalls.

And she didn’t hesitate. From the VW lot, Powers headed straight to a local church where she secured her first job as a part-time administrator. Since then, her career has taken her from dentist’s offices to TV newsrooms, though she never stopped pinching pennies throughout. She even kept a scale model on her desk to keep her eyes on the prize.

“Having a goal makes it easier to save,” Powers explained. “You don’t realize how much money you can actually put away until you really want something.”

Last summer, she had finally saved enough funds to buy her dream Bug and started scouring listings from across the state. Lucky, her boyfriend found a match at a used car dealership in Latham, New York – just down the road from her home in Schenectady – in January.

On top of that, she was able to secure a good deal on the used convertible since it was wintertime. “After I went to the dealership and test drove the car, I took a week to think about it,” she said.
The following week, after a huge snowstorm, she decided to make an offer &#; $5, &#; and drove the car home two days later.

The “Dream Beetle,” currently unnamed, is sitting in Powers’ garage with 84, miles on it. She’s also keeping her previous car to brave the Northeast’s wintry conditions.

Powers plans to christen her new car with a name and celebratory first drive this spring.

THIS IS ONE OF Monogram’s classic 1:24 scale Hot Rod kits, originally released in 1964 as the Blue Beetle, but now renamed the ’29 Ford Street Rod Blue Bandito.


Mat Irvine:The original Blue Beetle kit represented a custom car, based a 1929 Ford Model A pickup, fitted with a V8 engine, mag wheels and modern tyres. Included in the kit were a surfboard and scuba gear - tanks, flippers, weight-belt and goggles.
Now the Blue Beetle is back from Revell-Monogram, still under the Monogram banner (though the instructions include the Revell name) but renamed the Blue Bandito. The rest of the kit remains the same as before, and you still get customizing components for an alternative Roadster version, with a choice of wheels, dropped axles, engine mods, and wood-look stakes for the pickup bed.

Parts layout of the new kit (below) shows the 112 components on their runners.
The Blue Beetle has been reissued once before though the basic kit was also released as a generic custom 1929 Ford Model A pickup, in a kit that included wooden slats for the pickup sides, but missing anything to do with nautical activities.

Original Blue Beetle box (below) from 1964.
Original parts layout (below) built just the Beetle version.

Old decal sheet (below left) next to the far more comprehensive replacement, which comes in the Blue Bandito box.


So far as building the Blue Bandito goes, the original Blue Beetle parts breakdown was somewhat simpler than the mouldings for a new-tool kit might offer. For example, the magneto is built in into the engine halves, rather than being a separate component, while the front and rear axles are offered as single items. But the final result (below) is none the worse for that, and being a Monogram kit, the moulding is top-notch, with excellent parts fit.

Five pix (below) show the assembled Blue Bandito. I created a suitable setting, and added surfside figure from the Jimmy Flintstone Studiosrange.

Engine detail (below) good, rewarded by some work with leads and plugs.



Choice of board colour is up to you, though the supplied decal is fine as is.

Assembled and painted models (below). Both versions assemble well and look good on display.

Monogram did a whole series of ‘colour’ cars, here (below front to back) the Blue Beetle, Black Widow, and Green Hornet. The spectrum was expanded later with the Yellow Jacket and Red Chariot, and I suppose you could also add Darryl Starbird’s Orange Hauler to the list.

Summation
Another attractive kit that's been resurrected from times past. Goes together well and looks good when assembled. A great kit for all beach bums, especially with added glamour, courtesy Jimmy Flintstone Studios.

A VW Beetle enthusiast gets her dream car after 12 years of saving

At 15 years old, Tiera Powers vowed she would one day own a 2005 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS convertible with an Aquarius Blue coat. Never losing sight of her goal, she saved for over a decade to buy her dream baby blue Beetle. “I always loved how the Beetle stood out in a crowd … It’s so unique,” said Powers, now 27.

Powers was inspired to start her Beetle fund after spotting her ideal ride while out shopping with her mother for a family car in 2006. The Upstate New York teen couldn’t keep her eyes off the shiny new Bug parked across the street in the lot of a Schenectady County Volkswagen dealership.

Even though Powers didn’t have a job — or even a driver’s license — at the time, she was committed to making her vision a reality. “I decided right there I was going to get a job to buy that car,” she recalls.

Since then, her career has taken her from dentist’s offices to TV newsrooms, though she never stopped pinching pennies throughout. She even kept a 1:12 scale model on her desk to keep her eyes on the prize.

“Having a goal makes it easier to save,” Powers explained. “You don’t realize how much money you can actually put away until you really want something.”

Last summer, she had finally saved enough funds to buy her dream Bug and started scouring listings from across the state. Lucky, her boyfriend found a match at a used car dealership in Latham, New York – just down the road from her home in Schenectady – in January.

The following week, after a huge snowstorm, she decided to make an offer — $5,100 — and drove the car home two days later.

The “Dream Beetle,” currently unnamed, is sitting in Powers’ garage with 84,000 miles on it. She’s also keeping her previous car to brave the Northeast’s wintry conditions.

Powers plans to christen her new car with a name and celebratory first drive this spring.
