While this idea will probably make most of you shake your heads, according to Jalopnik this is actually the eighth edition of the VW Beetle Denim, with the first one taking the stage in 1974. According to the details released by VW in a press release, this car really is as devoted to jeans as you would expect.

This particular form of the Denim Bug is based on the editions from the 1970s, and will also be a convertible. The vehicle’s exterior  will be available in either Pure White or Stonewashed Blue, and the convertible top will be a dark blue cloth meant to resemble denim but with better protection against the elements. The interior will feature seatback pockets that mimic the real stylized back pockets on a pair of well-worn jeans, down to tiny red brand tags attached through the stitching.
