‘The Bug was de­signed first and fore­most to be fun’

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Buying & Selling - chris hope, Fea­tures ed­i­tor

With its bright tan­ger­ine paint­work, for­ward-fold­ing canopy, and wedge shape, you can tell at a glance that the Bug was de­signed first and fore­most to be fun – and that’s not changed in the five decades since it was launched. Per­for­mance may be mod­est, but it’s ca­pa­ble of reach­ing the national mo­tor­way speed limit and does drive rather nicely. Only around 2270 were built, so sourc­ing re­place­ment parts to­day can be an is­sue, es­pe­cially the canopy. All the more rea­son, then, to join the Bug Club, where like-minded en­thu­si­asts can help keep your car in fine fet­tle.
