Volkswagen Australia is preparing to launch no fewer than four special-edition models before the end of 2016, following in the wheel tracks of the just-launched Golf GTI 40 Years edition.

Kicking things off is the Volkswagen Beetle Classic Final Edition due to arrive in September. It’ll be the last opportunity for people to buy a Beetle before the iconic model is axed from the local line-up.

This special version, to be priced at $36,990 plus on-road costs, gets unique 17-inch retro alloy wheels, classical exterior and interior design elements, and unique numbered decals.

Also due in September is the Volkswagen Polo Beats, based on the 81TSI Comfortline. This version gets a large 300W Beats sound system, unique interior and exterior trims including quilted seats, and 16-inch alloy wheels.

The Polo Beats will cost $21,990 drive-away with a manual or $24,490 drive-away in DSG guise.

Launching around the same time as this pair will be the Volkswagen Touareg Wolfsburg, an uber-luxury derivative based on the 150TDI with 20-inch ‘Mallory’ alloy wheels, diamond-stitched Nappa leather seats with heating/cooling, radar cruise and AEB, and the availability of a unique Reef Blue metallic paint.

This version will be priced from $88,990, which is $7000 more than the car on which it is based.

Finally, the company will launch the Volkswagen Scirocco R Wolfsburg in November, limited to 150 units, which adds motorsport-style bucket seats, 19-inch black alloy wheels and the availability of either Oryx White pearl or Rising Blue metallic paint.

The six-speed manual version will be $49,990, while the DSG version will cost $51,990 — $4000 more than the regular versions.
