Volkswagen is saying goodbye to its iconic Beetle – for the second time – with a fitting sendoff. The company has offered plenty of charming, likeable special editions that pay tribute to past models, a VW tradition that continues with the 2019 Volkswagen Beetle Final Edition. In this case, the Final Edition hearkens back to the first time we said goodbye to the Beetle, when the original Bug ended production in 2003 in Puebla, Mexico. Not only does the current Beetle have a design that’s a modern version of the classic, but the current Beetle’s final edition plays off the end of production of the Type 1 Beetle (the classic), known as the Ultima Edicion that was produced in Mexico until 2003. The Ultima Edicion was only offered in beige or light blue, with body-color steel wheels, chrome accents and interior trim that matched the body color.
