We are anxiously awaiting the release of the 2013 VW Beetle Convertible and those at Vee-Dub-Ya are being really stingy with the images and information. Well our friends over at Jalopnik managed to get a hold of some images of the new VW convertible rocking a killer disguise [dripping with sarcasm].
VW thought it could fool everyone by taking stickers, in the same shape as the previous generation VW Beetle convertible, and slapping them over the revised taillights on the 2013 Beetle convertible mule. Anyone that has ever frequented a “Gentleman’s Club” in a conservative city, county, or state knows, sticking pasties over the goodies does not really eliminate your ability to imagine what’s under them.
This is doubly true when you make the stickers so thin that the goodies show through – a trick often undertaken at said gentleman’s clubs and obviously at VW too. Someone behind this new Beetle caught it just as the taillights came on and snapped a shot of the new lights shining through in all of their glory.
What makes matters worse is in order to mimic the old New Beetle convertible’s backside a little more, Vee-Dub added in some extra tasteful stickers on the bottom of the rear fascia. One happens to have a gigantic air bubble in it and the other one is pretty crooked. By the way, VW, the last-gen Beetle convertible didn’t have dual exhaust.
Thanks for the “LOLs” VW, we needed that one.
