THE VOLKSWAGEN BEETLE is one of the most popular cars of all time. It is almost 80 years old and more than 21.5 million of them have been made.

The VW Bug started Beetle Mania before any of the Beatles were born and even after all these decades on our roads it has never gone out of style. Not only does it have classic looks and an immediately identifiable shape – it has iconic status, too.

If you want to own a piece of automotive history we’ve rounded up five Volkswagen Beetles for sale on a variety of budgets.
