Volkswagen Produces Last Special Edition Of Its Iconic ‘Hippie Van’
By Anthea Quay, 18 Dec 2013
As Volkswagen’s production of its iconic “hippie van” comes to a halt—due to its inability of meeting newly introduced safety standards—the brand will be producing one last batch of its mini busses for it to go out in style.
Produced exclusively by Volkswagen Brazil, the ‘Last Series Special Edition Kombi’ celebrates the humble German automobile.
The Kombi is one of the most iconic and successful models of the car manufacturer, and a last limited edition of 600 would be produced.
Like its previous counterparts, the special editions would feature the unique “skirt and blouse” decorative band that surrounds the entire vehicle, with a paint finish in white, and blue below the waistline.
It would have upholstery vinyl reminiscent of old models of the vehicle, in the colors of blue with white bands.
Nostalgia-inducing, the vehicle’s side windows and rear windscreens would also feature curtains, in blue, and curtain holdbacks embroidered with the “Kombi” logo.
The last-edition Kombi sits up to nine people and, to add to the retro-touch, it will have white tire rims.
The mini bus it would be sold exclusively in Brazil, each priced at US$35,600.
