In addition to a subwoofer with auxiliary input and Bluetooth connectivity, the Beetle Fender houses a distinctively painted dashboard that features the signature colours of Fender guitars.

Under the hood is a 200hp 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder TSI engine. The car rides on 18'' alloy wheels styled after a 33rpm vinyl record.

Retro-looking tailpipes, red exterior accents, and a lowered suspension are part of the mix as well.

Volkswagen stayed mum on pricing but confirmed that this special edition of the Beetle will arrive in North American showrooms this fall.
