“That car is alive! You gotta believe me. It's mocking me! I'm telling you! That car is alive! Look!”
Not many cars have had a whole Disney franchise made about them – but the Volkswagen Beetle is the exception. Starring a sentient VW Beetle capable of driving himself, the Herbie films are testament to just how popular and loved the Beetle is as a car. It is, after all, one of the best selling cars in history.
Designed in 1930s Germany as a ‘people’s car’, the Beetle has gone through many different models over the decades, but its distinctive bug-like shape has stood the test of time. Though no longer in production, the car remains an instantly-recognisable cultural phenomenon – one we’ve chosen to celebrate with this stunning tea towel. Know someone who drives the Bug? Well this is the gift for them!
