Caught on Tape: Footage of the 2012 Volkswagen Beetle from the New York City Reveal Event

On Monday, April 18, the world got its first glimpse of the 21st Century Beetle. Redesigned for only the second time in Volkswagen history, the 2012 Beetle is a modern interpretation of the iconic Beetle design. If you couldn’t make it to the official New York City Reveal Event, this exclusive footage is the next best thing.

The 2012 Beetle features enhanced performance and fun-to-drive dynamics that define the Volkswagen driving experience. More importantly, it features fun. Lots and lots of it. And it’s not just fun in the form of an available 200-hp turbocharged engine or the available Fender Premium audio system; it’s the fun that comes from driving a true original.
