VW Beetle Dune Concept Bows to the Web with Official Photos, Likely Heading for Production

Volkswagen is revisiting an idea from January 2000, when it presented the New Beetle Dune concept in Los Angeles, with a similarly themed concept car at next week's 2014 Detroit motor Show, but you won't have to wait until tomorrow to see it as more than a dozen photos surfaced online today.

The new Beetle Dune Concept for a taller-riding and tougher looking version of the retro-inspired compact is very close to production, something that the company itself admits.

In the press release VW stated that while the 2000 concept "was far from a production possibility, the Beetle Dune is very much based on the current production model, using the same 210PS [207hp] turbocharged petrol engine and six-speed DSG gearbox, providing power to the front wheels."

We'll have more on the Beetle Dune on Monday.
