MILTON KEYNES, UNITED KINGDOM – Aug 20, 2013: Volkswagen do Brasil has announced the Kombi Last Edition, a special commemorative series of one of the most successful Volkswagen models in Brazil and the longest produced model in automotive history.

The Kombi Last Edition has a production run of only 600 units and features exclusive body paint, luxury internal finishing and design elements which give a nod to the many versions made in Brazil since 1957.

The Kombi Last Edition comes with special two-tone white and blue body paint and each model will be fitted with a numbered identification plaque on the dashboard. Special design details such as whitewall tyres, white centre wheel caps and tinted rear windows provide an extra touch of nostalgia.

The upper section of the front grille, headlights and indicator rims come in the same colour as the exterior. Front indicator lights feature white crystal lenses. At the side of the vehicle decals help identify the special series: ‘56 anos - Kombi Last Edition’.

Interior - special treatment
Inside, the Volkswagen Kombi Last Edition features distinctive blue fabric curtains in the side and rear windows and curtain fasteners bear the ‘Kombi’ logo, a feature typical of the model’s top versions from the 1960s and 70s.

The seats come in special vinyl upholstery, with sides in Atlanta Blue and a matching two-tone centre (blue and white). The model can seat up to nine people.

The internal side, door and cargo panels are also upholstered in Atlanta Blue vinyl and are finished with decorative stitching. The cabin and luggage area floors are fitted with carpet and dilour Basalto inserts, the same material that covers the spare tyre.

The instrument cluster boasts a special serigraph treatment and keeps the traditional Kombi design of speedometer at the centre and fuel gauge on the right. The MP3 sound system has red LEDs and features auxiliary and USB ports.

Each Kombi Last Edition is provided with a special certificate of authenticity.

The model is equipped with the EA111 1.4-litre engine, which delivers 78 PS when used with petrol or 80 PS when used with ethanol (both at 4.800 rpm). The transmission is a four-speed manual.
