Real Life Barbie: Heidi Klum poses with VW’s Barbie-themed New Bettle Convertible

Looking like something from the Hot Import Night’s show circuit, Volkswagen rolled out a hot pink New Beetle Convertible to help celebrate Barbie’s 50th birthday.

Made with the help of ABD Racing Werks, Katzkin Leather and FoamMolder, the convertible features a custom white leather interior and white leather roof as well as pink quilted interior details. As for the trunk, it features a motorized vanity with plenty of mirrors and rhinestones. Even the engine bay has been updated with a hot pink engine cover and a pink dipstick.

The car sat just next to the “Pink Carpet” at Barbie’s real-life Malibu Dream House, a 3,500 square foot home in Malibu, where Mattel threw birthday party with plenty of celebrity guests – Heidi Klum included.
