Wilhelm Karmann GmbH - or simply Karmann - was one of the largest independent motorvehicle manufacturing companies in Germany, specially known for its products developed for Volkswagen . Two of the most famous vehicles developed by Karmann are Volkswagen Beetle Cabriolet and the Volkswagen Karmann Ghia developed between 1955 and 1974.
Today, as a tribute to Karmann, Volkswagen launched the special edition Golf Cabriolet Karmann which is now on sale at a price of €27,275 — about $37,000 at the current exchange rates.
The new special edition can be combined with all the standard Golf Cabriolet engines and will be distinguished by special 17-inch Porto-style alloy wheels and various chrome elements. The interior is updated with sport seats upholstered in black Alcantara, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, gear knob and handbrake grip, and various "Karmann" logo placed both on the exterior and the interior.
