The Volkswagen Beetle has gained an unequaled reputation as one of the best-selling and most instantly recognizable motor vehicles of all time. Officially called the Type 1, Volkswagen sold 21.5 million examples over a remarkable 65-year production run, it is beloved for its simple, robust construction, cheerful design, and ease of ownership. The Super Beetle was introduced in 1971 to keep the Beetle competitive in a growing market of compact competitors, improving comfort and practicality with a more powerful 1,600 cc engine, MacPherson strut front suspension assembly, and a larger storage area. Today, they continue to attract a happy-go-lucky contingent of owners who enjoy memorable weekend cruises and grabbing attention at local car shows.
