Pink VW Beetle: a Joyful Cliche

Stories about cars tend to be serious and dry, like strong alcohol. But autoevolution does have a small but loyal female readership and we like to do something… for the ladies every once in a while. Well, we doubt things can get any more girly than a pink Volkswagen Beetle.

Everybody has that friend, that girl who knows absolutely nothing about cars but goes bananas every time she sees a Beetle. Not the new one that came out in 2012, but the first "New Beetle", which is rounder and cuter.

As if a flower holder in the cabin wasn't enough of a cliche, this Beetle appears to have damage to both bumpers from failed parking attempts. Rather than a respray the female owner of the car, who appears to be a masseuse, had it wrapped in bright pink.

This is the work of cartecdesign.de, the same company from Monchengladback who made that camo wrap Astra OPC we showed you yesterday.

Launched in 1997, the New Golf was an instant hit thanks to its bubbly, girly look. Kept in production right up until July 2011, this is one of the most long-lived modern VWs. Having the engine in the front driving the front wheels, the car is closely related to the Golf. Many special editions existed, including the Malibu Barbie New Beetle.
