Description

Volkswagen is partnering with Giuliana Rancic, her initiative FAB-U-WISH, and The Pink Agenda to bring you this amazing opportunity to support breast cancer research and awareness.

Be the first in the United States to own the limited edition 2017 Volkswagen #PinkBeetle, the first vehicle ever to officially be named as its own hashtag, and fly to New York City to meet Giuliana Rancic with two tickets to The Pink Agenda's Annual Gala on October 13th!

Perks of the limited-edition vehicle include: 

  • Unique shade of Fresh Fuchsia Metallic paint, the first factory-offered shade of pink in the Beetle’s history
  • 1.8-liter turbocharged direct-injection TSI® engine and a six-speed automatic transmission
  • 17-inch multi-spoke Linas aluminum-alloy wheels
  • Bi-Xenon headlights with LED Daytime Running Lights, LED taillamps and LED rear license plate lighting
  • Pink Club cloth seats, reminiscent of the signature plaid insert famous in the Volkswagen GTI
  • Volkswagen’s MIB II infotainment system, the foundation for the VW Car-Net® App-Connect suite of features. App-Connect technology enables smartphone integration through three major platforms—Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™ and MirrorLink®

The 2017 #PinkBeetle is the first production pink-colored Beetle, and is destined to be an instant social media influencer. Initially shown as a concept at the 2015 New York Auto Show, the exclusive run of #PinkBeetle models will be available in coupe and convertible configurations and will go on sale later this year.

Offered in its own unique shade of Fresh Fuchsia Metallic paint, the special edition Beetle model’s eye-catching paint is contrasted by gloss-black mirror caps and black running boards. Fitted with 17-inch multi-spoke Linas aluminum-alloy wheels, the #PinkBeetle comes with Bi-Xenon headlights with LED Daytime Running Lights, LED taillamps and LED rear license plate lighting as standard.

Interior design features of the #PinkBeetle include a black dashpad with surrounding pink accent and a leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel. The Pink Club cloth seats are reminiscent of the signature plaid inserts of the GTI, replacing the classic design’s red striping with a perfectly-matched pink hue.  Standard equipment includes Volkswagen’s MIB II infotainment system, which serves as the foundation for the VW Car-Net® App-Connect suite of features. App-Connect technology enables smartphone integration through three major platforms—Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™ and MirrorLink®—allowing seamless connectivity for compatible devices.

The #PinkBeetle is fitted with Volkswagen’s Composition Media infotainment system that has a 6.3-inch screen with a capacitive touch sensor (similar to smartphone and tablet technology) to enable gesture controls like swiping and pinch-zooming. MIB II also features a proximity sensor, which detects when a hand is nearby and automatically switches its display to allow easier selection of specific features. USB and Bluetooth® connectivity for compatible devices is standard, along with a rearview camera and a 3-month trial of SiriusXM® Satellite Radio. Other standard equipment includes heatable front seats and KESSY® Keyless access with push-button start.
