Welcome to the SuperKäfer
71 1302S
The Super Beetle was Volkswagens' 'biggest' Beetle. First introduced in 1971, it had the largest engine to be installed on a Beetle from the factory, and an incredible 85% increase in boot space over the standard Beetle. Another big change was the use of the MacPherson strut front suspension, replacing the torsion bar system that VW had used since the start of Beetle production (and is still using in Beetles produced in Mexico). The Super Beetle was updated in 1973 with the 1303, and production ended in 1975 (with convertible Super Beetles still being made at Karmann until 1980).

The SuperKäfer is dedicated to specifications, information and history of the VW 1302 and 1303 'Super Beetles'. Hope you enjoy your visit!
