The Volkswagen Beetle is the most successful car in the history of the automobile and over twenty million examples have been built. Conceived by Adolf Hitler in the spirit of the Model T Ford and designed by Ferdinand Porsche in the 1930s, the Beetle did not enter series production until 1945, after the ending of the Second World War. Its familiar but unconventional lines have since become recognisable throughout the world and, incredibly, it is still being built at VW s Mexican factory. This edition brings the story up to date and charts the arrival and evolution of the New Beetle, visually inspired by the original, which appeared in 1998. About the authorJonathan Wood is a founder member of the staff of Classic Cars, the magazine which gave its name to the movement. He is the author of some 35 books, which include an acclaimed history of the Volkswagen Beetle. Other titles for Shire by this author are: The BeanAustin SevenThe CitroenThe Bullnose MorrisClassic CarsThe Model T FordThe Rolls-Royce"
