VW

A 42-year-old Volkswagen Beetle with just 90 km (55 miles) on the clock will find its second owner during Silverstone’s May 28-29 auction in Denmark.

The car has been in a barn for almost 40 years, and it is a LHD car with a manual transmission. It is blue with a black interior. The original books, invoice and never-unwrapped tool kit come with the car.

“The VW Beetle is one of the most successful and loved cars worldwide, and we’re no strangers to them at Silverstone Auctions, but this one is a very special example and something we rarely see,” said Nick Whale, Silverstone managing director. “With such an incredibly low mileage it is in virtually new condition, 42 years after it was first bought.” Read more.
