Volkswagen ‘70 Years of the Bulli’ edition

When the Volkswagen Type 2 van was introduced in 1950, people in Germany soon gave it the nickname ‘Bulli’. Now, that same moniker is being used officially for a special model based on the current Transporter Multivan.

The ‘70 Years of the Bulli’ edition commemorates the anniversary of Volkswagen’s Dutch importer, Ben Pol, visiting the Wolfsburg factory. Seeing the ‘Plattenwagen’, a cobbled-together parts mover, he came up with the rough concept for a cargo-carrying vehicle.

As well as some ‘Bulli’ badges, the exterior gains 17” Davenport wheels (unfortunately, 18” Disc wheels will cost extra), tinted windows and some additional chrome. For a properly retro look, the optional two-tone Candy White and Metallic Kurkuma Yellow colour scheme really needs to be ordered.

Inside, the main feature is a dark wood floor covering, but Visitamo upholstery and gloss black dashboard trim pieces contribute to the ambience too. The enhanced specification also includes ParkPilot front and rear, heated and power-folding door mirrors, a Premium multifunction display and a leather-covered steering wheel.

Customers in Germany can order the ‘70 Years of the Bulli’ edition from the beginning of May. Availability in the UK (where admittedly the ‘Bullli’ label doesn’t mean much) hasn’t been decided yet.
