Volkswagen Beetles and their variants are some of the most iconic and easily recognizable cars on the road! The classic air-cooled Volkswagen Beetle, officially the Volkswagen Type 1, is regarded as one of the most important and well-engineered vehicles of the twentieth century. It was the most popular imported car in America in the 1960s, and before that it enjoyed a humble beginning as "the people's car" in its native Germany. The Complete Book of Classic Volkswagens encompasses the evolution of the popular Beetle as well as other variations of Volkswagen's air-cooled cars, vans, and trucks. Thoroughly illustrated, this is an invaluable reference to Volkswagen's collectible and iconic cars. The history of VW automobiles is just as colorful as the hues they were manufactured in, and this book illustrates the full story. German automakers originally sought to supply their countrymen with an automobile that was easy to mass produce. By 1938, they finalized the design for the VW "Bug"--the first rear-engined, rear-wheel-drive configured car. In its heyday, the little rounded Beetle was produced at a rate of more than one million per year. Today, with more than 23 million cars built, the Beetle holds the record as the most-produced passenger car of all time. But the Beetle is only one part of the air-cooled Volkswagen story. The rest--from Type 2 vans, pick-ups, and campers to the Type 113 "Super Beetle"--is included here. If you're the owner of a Volkswagen or if you just love their iconic look and you're interested in their evolution, this book deserves a place on your bookshelf.

Über zwanzig Jahre Recherche, unter anderem in den sehr frühen Archiven von Volkswagen und Porsche, eine Vielzahl von bislang unveröffentlichten Fotos und Entwicklungsplänen sowie die Kompetenz eines der renommiertesten internationalen Motor-Journalisten und ausgewiesenen Käfer-Kenners verdichten sich in "Der Käfer" zu einer faszinierenden Auto-Biografie. Zahlreiche Bücher haben bislang den Werdegang des Käfers beleuchtet, doch alle streifen nur sehr vage seine Entwicklungsgeschichte. Autor Chris Barber konzentriert sich hingegen exakt auf diese Epoche des Kultautos aus Wolfsburg. Er geht noch einmal siebzig Jahre zurück und begleitet den genialen Autoentwickler Ferdinand Porsche und seine Mannschaft auf ihrer Mission, ein Fahrzeug zu bauen, das den Automobil-Markt revolutionieren sollte. Der Volkswagen sollte einfach zu bedienen sein, er sollte einer fünfköpfigen Familie ausreichend Platz bieten, er sollte robust sowie in Großserie zu produzieren sein und: Er sollte extrem preiswert sein. Ferdinand Porsche gelang dieses Kunststück in einem politisch diffusen und gefährlichen Umfeld. Chris Barbers souveränem Blick ist es zu verdanken, dass aus der Beschreibung des technischen Bravourstückes keine blinde Laudatio auf den Führerstaat Deutschland wird. Vielmehr schafft er es, die einzigartige Entwicklungsgeschichte des Käfers ohne Pathos in die herrschenden Zeitläufte einzuordnen. Übersetzt wurde dieses künftige Standardwerk über die Geburt des Volkswagens von Deutschlands wohl kompetentesten Käfer-Experten: Dr. Bernd Wiersch, der schon seine Promotion über den Käfer verfasste, leitete über viele Jahrzehnte das Wolfsburger "Volkswagen Museum"
