It's time you discovered a modern classic with serious rarity. This 2003 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS Turbo is a Color Concepts special edition. These are rumored to be as rare as only 2,000 for each color, and so someday soon we may talk about it in the same kind of rareness as Hemi muscle cars. And this distinct-looking coupe also is loaded with all the best modern features. So that makes for a car with a true pedigree and everyday appeal.
<br><br> Blue Lagoon is already a sought-after color in VW crowds. It lives up to its name by having the look of a tropical ocean, and so it has everlasting appeal. This one has some cool upgrades, like the darkly tinted windows. And the rear looks great with a color-matched spoiler, upgraded tail lights, and a new Turbo badge. Plus, the 18-inch Elbrus alloy wheels add to the sport appeal you get in a turbocharged Bug. The car's odometer reflects its full actual mileage. So while this one has seen some time on the road, it also has been appreciated correctly. This one is coming from a collector who amassed the five Color Concepts models and kept them all for a few years.
<br><br> The interior really shows off how the Color Concept cars earn their name. Every New Beetle came with door tops that were color-matched to the outside. But these special editions make it a far more thoughtful package with a matching blue also on the door panels, rear side panels, grab handle, and center armrest. And the blue inserts in the leatherette seats really the rare Color Concept cars apart from the rest. The overall condition is reflective of the mileage, but since this one was part of the collection for its completeness, it remains looking impressive today. Plus, this coupe is loaded with all the best features, including power windows, power locks, an alarm, tilt/telescopic steering column, electric rear defogger, heated seats, and an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo with USB and Bluetooth. You even have the best in safety with dual front airbags, side airbags, and anti-lock brakes. And with cold-blowing air conditioning and a power sunroof, you can really understand how this is a breezy, fun, and comfortable collectible.
<br><br> The engine of choice in these earlier New Beetles was the turbocharged 1.8-liter fuel-injected motor. They were the most powerful offered of their time, and the peppy turbo nature just goes well with the Beetle's style. This fires up readily and runs smoothly, like a modern car should, and you'll even spot the right maintenance pieces that contribute to its everyday kind of appeal. In fact, the four-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and cruise control make this great for the long hauls. But nimble handling and four-wheel power disc brakes also remind you that this turbo Beetle is also a fun all-around driver.
<br><br> Complete with the owner's manual, this is the cool modern classic that gives you a terrific balance of true rarity in a package that fits into your daily routine. Call today!!!
