The Ultimate Car Collection #06; 1973 Volkswagen Super Beetle

 

In its day it was more comfortable and powerful than most European small cars, and ultimately became the longest-running and most-produced automobile of a single design. It remained a top seller in the US, even as rear-wheel drive conventional subcompacts were refined, and eventually replaced by front-wheel drive models.

The Beetle was the benchmark for both generations of American compact cars such as the Chevrolet Corvair, and subcompact cars such as the Chevrolet Vega and Ford Pinto. It is often considered a German equivalent and counterpart to the Austin/Morris Mini. In an international poll for the award of the world's most influential car of the twentieth century the Beetle came fourth after the Ford Model T, the Mini, and the CitroŽn DS.
