A million bestseller, cult object, and design icon. The idea for the Beetle started more than 80 years ago on a white sheet of paper and initially had only three demands of its developers: room for four people, travel at a maximum of 100 kilometers per hour, and costing a maximum of 1,000 Reichsmarks. Today, the Beetle is regarded as a symbol of the German economic miracle and the revival of mobility in the post-war years. With over 21 million units sold, the Beetle was the best-selling car in the world in the 20th century.
