The millionth Volkswagen New Beetle
will run off the production line this summer. To mark the
occasion, enthusiasts from all over Europe met on the New Beetle
Sunshine Tour. In addition to standard models from the New
Beetle and New Beetle Cabriolet range, many custom cars with
special paint finishes and completely revamped bodies will be
joining the parade along the Baltic coast.
The Baltic Sea Tour
started on Sunday 14 July in Lübeck. It will finish with a
flower-power party featuring the New Beetles at the Grömitz

was launched by New Beetle Cabriolet owner Gabriele Kraft from Lübeck in
She is organising the tour for the fourth time.
"This meeting is not just about beautiful cars, but about the people
that love the New Beetle," she says. 135 entry forms have been received
from all over Germany and its neighbouring countries. Gabriele Kraft is
optimistic that the cars meeting at Grömitz beach will number 250 for
the first time.
This does need a large amount of planning as
there will be a stage at the finish on which everybody can present their
favourite car. There will be concert by a surprise act later on. "In the
morning, the cars will be on show in the P+R car park at VfB-Lübeck/Lohmühle
football club before we head towards Grömitz promenade with a few fun
stop-offs along the Baltic," says the organiser.
