The Volkswagen Type 1, widely known as the Volkswagen Beetle or Volkswagen
Bug, is an economy car produced by the German auto maker Volkswagen (VW)
from 1938 until 2003. With over 21 million manufactured in an
air-cooled, rear-engined, rear-wheel drive configuration, the Beetle is the
longest-running and most-manufactured automobile of a single design
platform anywhere in the world.
The same body appeared during 1966, with a 1,300 cc engine in place of the
1,200 cc engine: it was only in the 1973 model Super Beetle that the Beetle
acquired an obviously curved windscreen. The flat windscreen remained on
the standard Beetle.
