WOLFSBURG – Aug 26, 2013: They came with neon wheels, as pick-up trucks and race versions: 414 Beetles in all possible shapes and sizes met last weekend at the largest gathering of fans of all ‘round’ Volkswagen models (Beetle, New Beetle and The Beetle) at the open air party on the Baltic coast.

With many thousands of visitors, the Sunshine Tour, now in its ninth year, is the largest private meeting of Beetle lovers of all three Volkswagen generations. The “most beautiful beach Beetle of the Year” was chosen by jurors: The 2013 title went to Marthe and Magnus Schwarz from Neustadt/Holstein. Their convertible in a knitted robe has been chosen among the hundreds of round Volkswagen vehicles hailing from six decades, which come from all across Europe to the event, was. “It took us seven months and 40 kg of wool to create this, it’s been so much fun!”, says Marthe. “It’s been a tough decision to pick only one most beautiful Beetle,” says Gaby Kraft, who organises Beetle Sunshinetour ever since 2004.

One of the specialities of the Sunshine Tour is that not only the cars put on fancy costumes but the visitors do as well. Whether glamour Beetle, rock ’n’ roll Beetle, wedding Beetle, beach Beetle, 007 Beetle or Charleston Beetle – the best idea and realisation are what matters.

On a second stage, another trio was making its grand debut: The new iBeetle from Volkswagen, which had its European premiere at the event, were presented alongside the Beetle Cabrio Exclusive from Volkswagen R GmbH, and the Beetle GSR – one of a limited edition of only 3,500 vehicles.
