The number 53 is seen on the hood, the iconic symbol for the famous Herbie Beetle. Other features include Park Pilot parking assist sensor and 17-inch wheels.

The special edition 53 Beetle will be available with four different powerplants out in Spain, ranging from the 1.2-liter TSI to the 2.0-liter TDI. Pricing starts at around $28,400 (€22,090).
