Described as Fresh Fuschia, this bug screams personality.

Driving up the coast to Santa Barbara, this beetle carved its own niche up the 101 on 17″ Alloy Wheels. Great acceleration, fluid gear transitions and impressive giddy-up, the #pinkbeetle whips down the road.
While it handles the road masterfully, the comfort level of the interior proved to be equally exhilarating. From the onset, everything is uber cool inside the #PinkBeetle.
