Volkswagen New Beetle Ragster Concept 2005

New Beetle Ragster In a nutshell
World premiere – the hottest Beetle ever

Study of the New Beetle Ragster with a roof lowered by 150 millimeters
Large-sized ragtop, newly designed exterior, racing car bucket seats, cargo area

• Wolfsburg / Detroit. It’s a statement, an automotive way of
life. More than 800.000 drive one, the Volkswagen with the
perhaps most famous design in the world: the New Beetle.
For the North American International Auto Show in Detroit
the German company presents the hot potential of the design
classic – with a study on the New Beetle Ragster. Its most
visible characteristic: a drastically dropped roof with a large
ragtop.

• Ragtop + Speedster = Ragster The development team based
the Ragster on the reinforced convertible, shortening the Apillars
by about 90 millimeters and creating a set u-shaped
roof fixing for the Ragtop’s frame. It becomes instantly clear
where the „Hot Rod“ with its ragtop and speedster
dimensions got its name.

• New design: The Ragster shows new visual ways. And this
does not only hold true for the top. The fenders, bumpers,
headlights, tail lights and 19” aluminum rims are all newly
designed as well and more progressive and sporty than ever.
Newly designed interior: Racing car bucket seats, sports car
type steering wheel with integrated engine start button (right
side) and ragtop control (left side), center console and the
extremely clean designed cargo area.

• Power? Anything goes: The drive - A powerful gasoline
engine or a high torque TDI are imaginable. Although it has
yet to be determined which motor will be built and if the
study will be produced in series – Anything goes. Just as in
New Beetle Ragster / NAIAS 2005 / Volkswagen / 2
Concept 1, the study on the New Beetle, which also started in
Detroit. - A great place for a world premiere…

Its strange how they designed the new beetle to represent the old one, and to re-live the legend, but now theyve successfully done that they make stuff like this which completely ignores the fact that its a modernised VW Beetle. They should realy leave it alone and keep the concept cars for something else.

The only word to describe this car is "silly." Beetles should be cute or fun, but no delusions of Porschehood, please.
