New Beetle Makes You Happy #gethappy: Super Bowl Commercial

Volkswagen New Beetle, definitely looks better than the first generation New Beetle but still front engine! However, this minor problem does not prevent people to smile according to Super Bowl  2013 commercial of Volkswagen.
As I am not from America, I couldn’t get the fun part of the advertisement but I can say one thing, everything except the New Beetle was coloured really badly :) I think that was the point of New Beetle commercial.
Actually, I was expecting something funnier however, New Beetle is way better than first generation :P
US spec Volkswagen New Beetle is powered by two petrol engine; 2.5-lt with 170 HP and 2-lt TSi with 200 HP. And one diesel 2-lt with 140 HP.

Cars in James Bond Skyfall

James Bond Skyfall, I have just watched the movie and I wanted to write about the cars in the movie. Because, there are more cars placed in Skyfall that you imagine.
The list starts with Land Rover Defender and Audi A4. Then JaguarXJ as you expected, then we Range Rover as usual. China sequences starts with Mercedes S500 (S550 for US market) and the taxi was a Volkswagen Passat. And we saw Land Discovery 4 as police vehicles and as a normal vehicle. I totally forgot the wrecked Volkswagen Beetles in the Turkey.
The London Police was driving Kia Optima, Sportage and Opel/VauxhallAstra. I really don’t know whether the London Police drives Kia or not! And the fire trucks were Dennis, a British classic. Later on, Bond left the Jaguar XJ and moved away with the Aston Martin DB5.
If there are more cars, I will update the post later. It was quite hard to keep up with in the Skyfall :)

VW Beetle: A new car

VW revealed the new Beetle.
The engine is still sitting in front of the car and drives front wheels! Still, it is not a rear engined, rear wheel car :( For me; Beetle means a car which has the engine placed at the back and drives the rear wheels. I do know that mass production of contemporary world does not allow this. However, VW has enough money to do this! I hope one day, we will have a proper Beetle with an engine placed at the rear.
