Volkswagen Beetle 1.8T Cabriolet

It is not the greatest car to drive but then nobody buys a VW Beetle Cabriolet to go racing. That’s only in the movies. In reality it is a fun, stylish car with a neat power hood and room for four adults. The wind won’t bother them, or you, even at motorway speeds and reliability is as you would expect from Volkswagen. Just leave the driving to Herbie. A Final Edition Beetle was launched at the beginning of 2010 and there are rumours of an all new car to follow it.
