The VW Beetle was initially designed to provide cheap transport for the hard working German masses. Built in very small numbers before and during World War II, the Beetle literally rose from the ashes of its bombed-out Wolfsburg factory. The Beetle was an instant success in Europe, Britain, America and virtually every other country in the world. The model evolved through various face lifts and running gear changes and provided a platform for other models including commercial and sporting derivatives (Karmann-Ghia). As production raced past the 15,000,000 mark, the Beetle went on to be crowned as the best selling car of all time. Pr
