Volkswagen can try and hide it as much as they want, but some of the people who drive Beetles are… special. Some eat nothing but vegetables, others will use 40 kilograms of wool to knit their convertible a gigantic sweater so it doesn't get cold. True story!
If you don't believe us, just check out the picture over yonder above, which shows one of the cars gathered at the 9th annual beetle Sunshine Tour, held on the Baltic shores of Europe.

The folks in the picture are its owners, Marthe and Magnus Schwarz from Neustadt/Holstein. “It took us seven months and 40 kg of wool to create this, it’s been so much fun!”, says Marthe.

Yes, that sounds like so much fun in the winter time!

“It’s been a tough decision to pick only one most beautiful Beetle,” says Gaby Kraft, who organises Beetle Sunshinetour ever since 2004. Yes, the knitted Beetle won the top award at the show.

Bet you people who chose to wrap your Beetle in brown feel very normal right about now.
