Volkswagen Beetle convertible 1972
A 1972 model, our light blue Beetle is a model of the transition year, the last version with flat windscreen and updated front end with Mac phersol system. Edition with 1600 cc twin-headed engine with a more lively character than the classic 1300 cc single-aspirated engine. Driving is pleasant and very precise, it is in our possession since 2020 and freshly fully restored. The original L52A colouring is splendid.
Like all the cars we offer, it is registered and certified by the A.S.I. (Automoto Club storico italiano).
The Volksvagen Beetle has 21,529,464 units produced, a production that goes from 1939 to 2003. Ferdinad Porsche accepted the challenge that Adolf Hitler launches:
- capability of transporting 5 people or 3 soldiers and a machine gun
- consume 7 litres per 100 km, driving over 100km/h
The Porsche engineer developed the "people's machine" (Volkswagen), an economical and robust vehicle. Self-supporting frame, cantilever air cooled Boxer 4-cylinder engine and rear wheel drive. The Beetle will be the development basis for future Porsche cars.
Production began after the end of the Second World War, and over the years various structural and aesthetic changes have been made, which however do not distort the car, making it remain always clearly identifiable, above all due to its particular rounded shape.
Even today, seeing it drive by gives joy because of its forms, but those who have had the pleasure of owning one, will also remember it for its qualities of solidity, reliability and safety. In the various countries where it has spread, it is called in different ways: the Beetle in Italy; Beetle in the Anglo-Saxon countries; Kaafer in Germany; Fusca in Brazil.
