Worldwide VW Beetle Day is held on June 22nd, celebrating one of the most sold cars ever built!

On that day, back in 1934, Adolf Hitler commissioned a team of engineers to develop a car for the people, which had to be an inexpensive vehicle with low running costs and low fuel consumption.

The prototype was designed by Chief Engineer Ferdinand Porsche the same year! The “Bug” became a symbol of the 1960s. Alexander Gromow, an expert on the VW scene and cofounder of the Brazilian magazine Fusca Clube Brazil created the observance in 1995. This event is one of the most important VW veterans and special Beetles meetings.
