2012 Volkswagen Beetle on oprah
Volkswagen has decided to tease the 2012 Volkswagen Beetle on one of most watched daytime talk shows, The Oprah Winfrey Show. Everyone remembers the time Oprah Winfrey gave a Pontiac G6 to each audience member on her day time talk show. “During today’s Part Two of Oprah’s Ultimate Favorite Things show,” says Mother Proof, “Oprah and Santa gave everyone in the audience keys to their own 2012 Volkswagen New Beetle.”
“Volkswagen isn’t revealing what the newer New 2012 Volkswagen Beetle looks like. “Jonathan Browning, chief executive of VW North America, explained that Oprah had approached the company and said ‘the Beetle was one of her favorite things,’” the New York Times elaborates.
“Mr. Browning added that the Volkswagen Beetle would come with a TDI engine option, which would also be offered on the Volkswagen Beetle Cabriolet. Even though Oprah’s audience and the public don’t know much about the newest new Volkswagen Beetle that’ll hit the market in May of next year, audience members did luck out this time. VW is paying the bills.
Volkswagen isn’t revealing what the newer New "Volkswagen Beetle looks like". The “Oprah” audience was allowed to see only a silhouette line of the car and Ms. Winfrey’s reaction to the design (in a video clip showing her as she saw the car for the first time). Oprah selected the Volkswagen Beetle as one of the items in her annual “Favorite Things” show, the second part of which aired on Monday. Ms. Winfrey will end “The Oprah Winfrey Show” next May and start her own cable channel, OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network.
