There are a lot of cars from the 40s of the last century at a cost of about $ 300,000 due to their origin, design or a small number of made copies. But is it worth to become the owner of Volkswagen, though completely original and of historical importance, but quite ordinary VW Beetle for nearly $300,000. Judge for yourself. Until now, the highest price achieved by one Volkswagen Beetle was $126,500 which new owner paid for the original copy from the film Herbie.
It is a cult film car so it isn’t surprising that the bidding was over $100,000. Therefore, an offer that can be seen on the website Holygrailgarage.com is more than surprising given that until now no one didn’t ask $300,000 for VW Beetle!
It is about perfectly preserved and restored copy of the rarest VW Beetle from the 40s, the war years of the last century, and this KdF Type 60 Käfer was produced in 1943 and shipped in Potsdam-Babelsberg for head of the German Red Cross. The car is mentioned in Volkswagen’s archives as well as in books KdF-a so that its historical chronology is well documented.
However, the price is really excessive for the world classic, although it is a perhaps the best preserved specimen from any era to 1944 when produced very little indeed. If you are interested you can contact the owner in North Carolina and try to reduce the price, because if the car is sold for precisely $295,000, then it will earn the title for the most expensive Beetle of all time…
