The VW Beetle's Dark Past


This is product designer Bruce Hannah's 1989 Beetle. It was called the Batmobile. So many love the Bug, but it was commissioned by Hitler. How did a car with such a dark past become loved by so many?

The Volkswagen Beetle is a symbol of peace, love, and harmony. It’s also a product of Nazi Germany. The story of how the Beetle transformed from Hitler’s car to the Love Bug involves a British army major and a surprising team of advertisers.
