December 2004 - The New Beetle Cabriolet will begin the next open-air season in an attractive, limited Dark Flint version: the anthracite coloured open-top New Beetle will be available with a garnet red hydraulically-operated top and Bordeaux red leather interior trim in a limited series of 250 vehicles from January 2005.<br> The special model moves on 17-inch alloy wheels with colour-coordinated trims to match the top. Design is the central focus of this model: alongside the gearstick knob, hand brake lever handle and grab handle in Bordeaux red leather, great importance has been given to even the finest details, such as Bordeaux red seams on the comfortable perforated leather seats, on the leather steering wheel and on the leather centre arm rest.<br>Air-conditioning, Parkpilot, winter package (incl. heated front seats and fog lights), gamma radio with CD player and 10 speakers, windbreak and the Highline package complete this limited series, making it a real eye-catcher. Not forgetting the flower vase of course, which rounds off the unique appearance of the Cabrio. <p>Remote control central locking and electric windows are of course also included.<p>The New Beetle Cabrio Dark Flint is available with four engines:<p>1.6l 75 kW (102 PS), 5-speed 26,300<p>2.0l 85 kW (115 PS), 5-speed 27,550<p>2.0l 85 kW (115 PS), 6-speed automatic 29,450<p>1.9l 74 kW (100 PS), TDI, 5-speed 28,125<p>The price saving is more than 2,500.</TD></TR></TABLE>
