Two words lasts for whole description... legendary car.
Designed by Ferdinand Porsche (well... with lot of ideas from Tatra). Prototypes were build and tested within 1934-1938. During World War 2 the car was produced only in special, heavily modified versions for the army (even amphibias !). The civilian production started in 1945.
The last Beetle left the production line on 30.07.2003 in Puebla(Mexico), almost 72 years after the very first prototype was built. Serial number counter stopped at 21.529.464.
With a production number like that, it isn't a surprise, that a lot of cars was customized and modified. One of the most popular modifications was to a off-roader. Such an car, called a Dune or Beach Buggy was featured in the Bond film 'For Your Eyes Only'.
