Updated Herbie Goes to Spain

Volkswagen launches a new Herbie-inspired special edition Beetle in Spain called the 53 edition. Just like the original ‘Love Bug’ this car features a white exterior with red and blue racing stripes. Complementing the paint job are the Type One 17-inch wheels, unique badging, and number 53 decals. The very high level of standard equipment that comes with it is what really sets the 53 Edition apart.
