If it’s true that everything that’s old is new again, there’s little further proof needed than the reveal of the limited edition Beetle Classic that’s now on sale, beginning at $20,195 for the 1.8T Coupe.

No longer will one hear the sewing machine engine nor wait for the giddy up with the 1.8-liter, 170 hp, Turbo engine that mates to a six-sped automatic transmission. VW notes that this is now the lowest priced model in the Beetle lineup, starting nearly $1500 lower than the Beetle 1.8T automatic. VW lists a combined EPA of 33 mpg.

The Classic trim features 17-inch “Heritage” aluminum-alloy wheels, a rear spoiler, a leather-wrapped shifter knob and handbrake lever, Sirius XM® Satellite Radio, an RNS® 315 navigation system, a multifunction steering wheel, two-tone brown “Sioux” leatherette and checked cloth seating surfaces, comfort front seats with driver’s side lumbar support, and a six-speed automatic transmission. The car is available in three colors—Pure White, Black Uni, and Reflex Silver—and has an understated retro look inside and out.

The Beetle Convertible Classic will go on sale early in 2015, starting at $25,995. It adds the same interior and exterior features as the Coupe.
