Volkswagen Concept One
The Volkswagen Beetle is one of the most iconic cars ever built. It ranks right up there with products like the Ford Model T and Willys Jeep. The original Bug was in production for decades, spanning years between the late 1930s and the early 2000s. How’s that for a run?
When the company decided to introduce a new version of the Beetle they premiered the idea with a special design study; it was called the Concept One. This bubbly-looking car took a bow back in 1994, presaging the release of the New Beetle four years later.
Like a certain name-brand of electric mobility scooter this vehicle was “round for a reason,” featuring an arched roof, curving fenders, circular side-view mirrors and more. It was remarkably similar to the production version that came out in the 1998 model year.
