At last week’s Los Angeles Auto Show, Volkswagen introduced the redesigned 2013 Beetle convertible. When I was done with my show duties, I attended the international media drive event for the Beetle convertible in nearby Santa Monica. In addition to numerous variations of the new Beetle drop-top we were there to experience, VW had some classic models on display. I was able to get behind the wheel of an air-cooled Beetle, a German-market 1980 convertible.
While I finish up the full review of the 2013 Beetle convertible, please check out these snapshots of the one-off 1960 Jolly prototype that VW had on display.
