Last OG Volkswagen Type I Beetles Ever Produced Circa 2003 Mexico

Original Volkswagen Beetles can be had for a couple of thousand at minimum these days, so why pay €1 million for one? Because it came from Mexico.

For just €1,097,000 ($1.2 million USD), one wealthy individual would have the honor of owning one of the last Beetles to leave the assembly line in Puebla, Mexico in 2003, Autoblog reports.

Despite being one of the final Última Edición models, there isn’t much to the Beetle 1600 Mexico waiting for the new owner’s arrival. The interior is black cloth, the exterior is beige, and it only has around 75 miles on the odometer.

The owner, Maik Patzwaldt, says he was personally involved in his and the other Última Edicións’ celebration event as “a former Employee of VW de México in a strategic position,” with his Beetle being one of the last of the last from the second and final day of production back in 2003. Whether the history behind his car is enough to place a million euros into his account, though, is up to the market to decide; the Última Edición originally sold for $7,700 in 2003 dollars.
