2009 VW New Beetle BlushEnlarge Photo
Destined to land in one of GayWheels' Top 10 lists, the re-make of Devil Wears Prada, or the driveway of a Mary Kay exec, VW unveils a sassy little special edition VW New Beetle for '09; the New Beetle convertible "Blush."
As if the New Beetle's "Hi!" styling and standard flower holder weren't enough, the Blush adds metallic White Gold paint outside, a rich red leather interior within, and a red convertible soft top. A red boot to cover the retracted roof and unique 17-inch alloys are also included.
You can get this little automotive equivalent of Kathy Najimy for $26,990, but the only motivation it receives is VW's workaday 2.5-liter Rabbit/Jetta inline five. Torquey and adequate, for sure, but if they threw in the 2.0-liter TDI diesel and the DSG six-speed, I'd actually be tempted.
