Volkswagen seems to have a history of launching cars with special editions right away. That’s exactly what they’re planning to do with the new Volkswagen Beetle Convertible, which will be bowing with three special editions, each inspired by the styling of a decade. 

These special editions are called the ’50s ’60s and ’70s models, and feature age appropriate details that coincide with the decade of the model.

You can expect to see different wheels and upholstery as well as special paint jobs. There’s even a possibility of whitewall tires. The special editions are expected to make the trip to the U.S. so we can look forward to seeing these retro-looking Beetles on the road.

It’s always interesting to see how modern cars interpret their history, so these special editions might truly be special. Volkswagen is looking to launch them alongside the convertible at the L.A. auto show in the fall.
