The front axle had been revised and now only required lubrication every 10,000 km. The track of the rear axle was widened by 12 mm.
Inside there was a new defroster nozzle in the center under the windshield, the steering wheel color prevented reflections. The backs of the front seats now has a mechanism that prevents unintentional folding forward.
With the increased power, the headlight flasher also found its way into the VW Beetle. It was combined with the dimmer switch. The VW Beetle could now run at 125 km/h, and according to the measurements of “auto motor und sport” it could sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 28.5 seconds. Whether the headlight flasher was needed frequently remains to be seen. The faster Beetle consumed 10.8 liters per 100 km, similar to its predecessor with the 1.2-liter engine.
Customers had barely gotten used to the 1300 when Volkswagen launched new improvements in the summer of 1967. In August 1967, the faster Beetle models received new bumpers, larger taillights and steeper headlights. Even from a distance, the new model could be distinguished from its predecessor. Behind the scenes, the new safety steering system provided much better protection for the driver in the event of an accident. In addition, there was finally a dual-circuit braking system.
This 1300 Beetle was built in April of 1967 making it one of the last ones with the old Headlamps. It was delivered in Lotus white and still has the 1300 engine.
