The History


The “Peoples” car is the most iconic car ever produced, the “Bug” is famous worldwide and has been in production since 1938 right up to 2003 where production ceased in Mexico. Famed on screen by the classic Herbie films and the brainchild of Ferdinand Porsche and Adolf Hitler, the design and flexibility of this quirky car has been a classic for young and older generations of drivers. 

The Background


In Aquarius blue this “Ultima” edition comes with whitewall tyres, Pioneer CD player, electric sunroof and 1.6 engine, this end of line model stands out from the crowd, a real part of motoring history with low mileage awaits the next owner and a chance to own a car with over sixty five years of history to its name in this classic guise.

The Paperwork


The car has had 5 owners including the current one, no paperwork with current owner apart from the original manuals and booklets shown in the photographs. An extensive service and maintenance was carried out in 2012. The owner has had the Beetle since June 2012 and only covered 3000 kilometres since.

The Interior


The “Ultima” edition has some unique additions to the interior of the cabin, the chrome Volkswagen badge on the glovebox, CD player, fully functional electric sunroof, all grey cloth interior that is in superb condition and tinted glass that is clear and has no chips or scratches present.

The wood steering wheel is mark free, and the gear shift, peddles and electrics are in good working order. Door cards are clean as are the floor carpets and trims. Headlining is clean and in good order.

The Exterior


The Aquarius Blue paintwork is in good condition, there are dents on the bottom left of the bonnet, and some slight rust on the near side bottom door. Tyres have good tread and the bumpers are in relatively good condition, just some marks visible on the rear bumper. Roof is clear of any damage and the electric sunroof opens freely, a nice addition to this model. 

The Mechanics


The car since in the current ownership has had very little use, it has been used as a daily driver over the last few months and according to the seller drives without any issues at all. 

Back in July 2012 the current owner a full service carried out which resulted in a £1700 bill, this covered rear hubs and seal gaskets, gearbox oil and fluids, alternator belt was checked and this was registered at 48,586 miles. Since then the car has covered only 3000 kilometres.

The Appeal


It goes without saying that everyone loves the Beetle, it is a style icon, the peoples car and this “Ultima” edition is a rare car, only 3000 were produced at the end of production which makes this a unique Beetle to own.

 About the max bid process

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.
Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.

About Max Bids

Anti-sniping

C&C prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.
Auctions are extended by 10-minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

If your bid is below the reserve price you'll bid that amount if you are the highest bidder.
If you are the highest bidder and place a bid above the reserve we will only go up to the reserve price.
Once the reserve has been met C&C will make sure you are the highest bidder using the bidding increments stated below, keeping you in the lead up until your maximum bid.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £10,000£100.00
£10,000 to £50,000 £250.00
£50,000+ £500.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.
You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.
