The sum may seem bit high for a VW “Beetle” from 1963, but this item, which was sold at auction is a world famous. The famous “Herbie” was sold for $86,250. It is a copy that was used for the filming of “Herbie Rides Again” and “Herbie Goes to Monte Carlo“, the second and third sequel of the series.

In addition to the famous colors, the vehicle is modified so that it can be driving from the back seat. This setting allows the driver to be unnoticed, so that it seemed as if the car is traveling without driver. Herbie was lost for decades, only to be re-discovered in a warehouse in Florida a few years ago.
