The uniquely-styled #PinkBeetle is a limited-edition model and the first car to ever have a hashtag in its name. Offered in its own unique shade of Fresh Fuchsia Metallic paint, the #PinkBeetle's eye-catching paint is contrasted by gloss-black mirror caps and black running boards. Interior design features of the #PinkBeetle include a black dashpad with surrounding pink accent and a leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel. The Beetle Dune Convertible harkens back to the Baja Bugs of yesteryear. Overall, the Beetle Dune has a bolder appearance in the Beetle range, thanks to the fitment of new front and rear fascias and pronounced black wheelarch extensions that flow into the bumpers. Inside, the new Beetle Dune features sport seats with contrasting orange stitching and a leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel.
