Ώρες-ώρες απλά δεν ξέρω τι να σκεφτώ… Στην ένατη Volkswagen Sunshine Tour, ένα ετήσιο event που μαζεύει χιλιάδες οπαδούς του Volkswagen Beetle, το βραβείο του «πιο όμορφου beach Beetle της χρονιάς» το κέρδισε το New Beetle Convertible που βλέπετε στην φωτογραφία. Το εν λόγω Beetle, είναι καλυμμένο με 40 κιλά πλεκτό. Όχι δεν είναι κάποιου είδους αργκό. Μιλάω για πραγματικό, αυθεντικό, χειροποίητο μάλλινο πλεκτό!

Οι ιδιοκτήτες του βραβευμένου πλέον Volkswagen Beetle Convertible είναι οι Marthe και Magnus Schwarz που –φυσικά- γνωρίστηκαν σε προηγούμενη Sunshine Tour. Το «εργόχειρο» πήρε περίπου 7 μήνες για να ολοκληρωθεί και όπως βλέπετε η Martha έπλεξε και μία μάλλινη γενειάδα για τον Magnus χωρίς κανέναν προφανή λόγο… Πραγματικά, πείτε μου τι σκέφτεστε γιατί είμαι πάρα πολύ περίεργος…

414 special Beetles rock the Baltic Sea Shores

  • Record participation at the ninth Beetle Sunshine Tour
  • Special guests: Motoring TV Celeb Sidney Hoffmann and The “Voice of Germany” duo Nathalie Dorra and Ole Soul

Wolfsburg/Travemuende – They come with neon wheels, as pick-up trucks and race versions: 414 Beetles in all possible derivatives meet this weekend at the largest gathering of fans of all ’round’ Volkswagen models (Beetle, New Beetle and The Beetle). Special guests: German Motoring Television Celeb Sidney Hoffmann (Die PS Profis, Sport1) and the Luebeck-based “Voice of Germany” duo Nathalie Dorra and Ole “Soul” Feddersen, who performed on stage at this open air party at the Baltic Coast.

With many thousand visitors, the tour is the largest private meeting of Beetle lovers of all three Volkswagen generations. The “most beautiful beach Beetle of the Year” was chosen by jurors: The 2013 title went to Marthe and Magnus Schwarz from Neustadt/Holstein. Their convertible in a knitted robe has been chosen among the hundreds of round Volkswagen vehicles hailing from six decades, which come from all across Europe to the event, was. “It took us seven months and 40 kilograms of wool to create this, it’s been so much fun!”, says Marthe. “It’s been a tough decision to pick only one most beautiful Beetle,” says Gaby Kraft, who organizes Beetle Sunshinetour ever since 2004.

One of the specialties of the Sunshine Tour is that not only the cars put on fancy costumes but the visitors do as well. Whether glamour Beetle, rock ‘n’ roll Beetle, wedding Beetle, beach Beetle, 007 Beetle or Charleston Beetle – the best idea and realization are what matters.

On a second stage, a trio was having its grand debut: The new iBeetle from Volkswagen, which has its European premiere at the event, were presented alongside the Beetle Cabrio Exclusive of Volkswagen R GmbH, and the Beetle GSR, in a limited edition of only 3,500 vehicles.
