New Beetle cabrio “Dark Flint”
The last breath of new 2005 New beetles is that limited edition called Dark Flint.
Basiacally an all black car with a cool 2 tone red/black interior. And a great looking red top!
With red in the wheels too.
But again, this is only available in Europe. And there, the 2.0Liter Automatic is priced at 30 000Euros.
Which is over $35 000!!!!!
What the hell are they thinking?! No wonder the new Beetle was never a big hit in Europe…
The “revised” 2006 comes out next summer. New fenders, bumpers, headlight and a slightly revised interior. But the standard engine is now the 2.5 Liter 5 cylinder engine from the all new Jetta.
