2017 Volkswagen Bulli Special Edition

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! '70 YEARS OF THE BULLI' SPECIAL EDITION AT GENEVA MOTOR SHOW

◾In honour of the great classic, special edition comes wîth many visual and technical highlights
◾Yellow-and-white two-tone paintwork; refined and modern inside

Hannover, 7 March 2017: Around 70 years ago, Dutch VW importer Ben Pon visited the Wolfsburg plant and came across a curious vehicle – the 'Plattenwagen'. He subsequently made a sketch in his notebook of a vehicle type that did not exist at that time anywhere in the world. His sketch became the launchpad for a vehicle that would sell in the millions – the Volkswagen Transporter. In commemoration of this idea, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles is unveiling a '70 Years of the Bulli' special edition at the Geneva International Motor Show which combines the charm of the classic retro style wîth technology and quality of today.

The special edition model is based on the Multivan Comfortline and has been created using a mix of different elements from the Multivan Highline and the California, for example, the chrome trim and wood-look floor. Just right for spring, the special edition is also optionally available in fresh two-tone paintwork of Candy White and Metallic Kurkuma Yellow.

2017 Volkswagen Bulli Special EditionSpecial identifying features: the 'Bulli' badges and anniversary sticker on the rear window underline the relationship wîth its cult classic predecessor. The '70 Years of the Bulli' special edition also features chrome trim including diverse chrome strips and chrome-look mirror housings. In addition to that, the passenger compartment has tinted windows, the tread plates feature 'Bulli' lettering and stainless steel inserts and the loading edge covers of the rear hatch are also stainless steel. Matt black decals around the B-pillars round off the overall look.

In addition to the standard 17-inch 'Davenport' wheels, also available as options are the popular 18-inch 'Disc' wheels in the classic look wîth white rims or alternatively in classic silver.

The new special edition model looks strikingly sophisticated inside as well: deluxe lighting cleverly shows off the modified 'Visitamo' seat covers, which in turn are stylistically coordinated wîth the refined look of the 'Dark Wood' floor covering. The '70 Years of the Bulli' special edition is also equipped as standard wîth a multifunction leather §teering wheel, a 'Premium' multifunction display and an instrument panel framed in decorative 'Black Glossy' trim otherwise available only in the Highline version. The special edition has electrically adjustable, heated, fold-in exterior mirrors and also includes ParkPilot for front and rear as standard.

2017 Volkswagen Bulli Special EditionThe special edition model will be available to order in Germany from the beginning of May. ÚK availability has yet to be confirmed.
