Volkswagen PinkBeetle Limited Edition front viewVolkswagen #PinkBeetle Limited Edition is destined to be an instant social media influencer. Or at least it has been designed with that purpose. As you can see, its original name features a hashtag – the first ever in Volkswagen's history. In addition, this is the first production pink-colored Beetle ever created.

The German company will produce the model in coupe and cabriolet variants, both going on sale this autumn. Powered by a 1.8-liter turbocharged direct-injection TSI engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, the #PinkBeetle confidently produces 170 horsepower (125 kW) and 250 Nm (184 pound-feet) of torque.

Another unique thing about this cute car is that it has been painted in unique shade, called Fresh Fuchsia Metallic. The paint has been contrasted by gloss-black mirror caps and black running boards.

A difference between the coupe and convertibles is that the first will be running on 17-inch multi-spoke Linas aluminum-alloy wheels, while #PinkBeetle cabrios will be riding on 18-inch five-spoke Twister alloys. Nevertheless, both models will be fitted with Bi-Xenon headlights with LED Daytime Running Lights, LED taillamps and LED rear license plate lighting as standard.

2017 Volkswagen #PinkBeetle will go into production this fall with pricing announced closer to launch. Both coupe and convertible models will be offered in limited numbers across the United States.
