"Despite its unpropitious origins in Nazi Germany, where it was designed to meet Hitler's requirement for a people's car & was initially known as the kdfwagen, or strength-through-joy car, the Volkswagen Beetle went on to become one of the most popular vehicles in automotive history & an icon of twentieth-century design. Even today the basic elements of its improbable shape still survive, clothing the high-tech innards of the New Beetle." Size: 250mm - 330mm. 143 pages.
