1:18 1949 Volkswagen 1200 - Red
The VW Beetle (VW Type 1) is a passenger car model of the lower middle class of the Volkswagen brandwith an air-cooled four-cylinder boxer engine and rear-wheel drive, which was built from the end of 1938 until the Summer of 2003.
With excess of 21.5 million vehicles, the Beetle was the bestselling car in the world before it was surpassed by the VW Golf in June 2002. The origins of the VW Beetle date back to the government efforts of the National Socialistic Germany for the creation of an affordable Volkswagen, for a broad section of the population,which was called KdF car. Ferdinand Porsche who is commonly referred to as the creator of the Beetle, contributed largely to its development. However, it was not only the idea of a technically simple and economically produced Volkswagen, in principle older than his development at the NS time also the technical concept of rear-wheel drive and rear oscillating axle was not new.
