The notion of a people’s car – a car affordable and practical enough for common people to own. Hence the name, which is literally "people's car" in German, pronounced [ˈfɔlksˌvaːɡn̩] Is a rear-engine design with a two-door body-style. design. Béla Barényi is credited with the original basic design for this car in 1925, notably by Mercedes-Benz, with his original technical drawing as proof five years before Porsche claimed to have done the initial version. The Beetle is the longest-running and most-manufactured car of a single platform ever made. The Beetle was equipped with the 1600 four-cylinder, air-cooled engine that generated 58 horsepower, as well as with a dual braking system, four-wheel independent suspension, and a flow-through ventilation system. Additionally the Beetle had seat belts for the driver and passengers, two-speed windshield wipers using a pneumatic washer system, swiveling sun visors, coat hooks, assist straps, folding rear seats, and luggage space under the front hood, plus a three-foot carpeted compartment behind the rear seats. The Beetle's engine, transmission, and cylinder heads were constructed of light alloy. An engine oil cooler (located in the engine fan's shroud) creates optimal engine temperature and extends engine life.
