Oprah Winner Receives the 2012 VW Beetle at David Maus Volkswagen

David Maus Volkswagen welcomes the 2012 Beetle to its showroom floor, and hands over the keys to one local Oprah Winfrey Show fan on October 13th, who received free 2.5L 2012 Beetles as giveaways on Winfrey’s “Ultimate Favorite Things” episode that aired November 17, 2010.

Redesigned for only the second time in history, the sportier 2012 Beetle is a modern interpretation of the iconic Beetle design. It balances classic beauty with modern edge and no-compromise German engineering, offering enhanced performance and fun-to-drive dynamics that define the Volkswagen driving experience. Available 2012 models include the 2.5L Beetle and 2.0L Turbo Beetle.

“David Maus Volkswagen is thrilled to offer Central Florida residents one of the most highly anticipated vehicles of the 21st century. We know Beetle fans have been eagerly waiting for this day,” said Randy Dulaney, General Manager of David Maus Volkswagen “Yet, with its fierce and sporty design, extra cargo space and improved fuel economy, the 2012 Beetle is sure to gain a new generation of admirers as well.”

The 2012 Beetle was built to perform—it features a lower, more aggressive stance. The increases in width and length allow for better handling and increased interior space. These modifications complement Beetle’s vintage characteristics, including its unique shape. The second skin program allows customers to design their 2012 Beetles with an array of accessories for interior and exterior personalization.

The 2.5L Beetle has a starting MSRP of $18,995 plus destination fees, and comes standard with a split folding rear seat, aux-in for portable audio players, a leather steering wheel, unique and customizable17-inch alloy wheels, and an eight-speaker audio system. Attractive options include a kaeferfach additional glovebox, Bluetooth® technology, iPod® connectivity, heated front seats, three-color interior ambient lighting, a panoramic sunroof, 18-inch alloy wheels, the Fender® Premium Audio System, and leatherette seating surfaces.

The 2.0L Turbo Beetle, which has a starting MSRP of $23,395, comes standard with a six-speed manual transmission, with the option of Volkswagen’s DSG© dual-clutch automatic transmission. In addition to the standard equipment found on the Beetle, this model adds Bluetooth® technology, iPod® connectivity, three-color ambient lighting, larger brakes with red calipers, the kaeferfach additional glovebox, sport seating surfaces, 18-inch alloy wheels, a rear spoiler, foglights, three additional gauges n the dashboard, and alloy pedals.
