We spotted this Custom Chromaflare painted New Beetle in the BW3s parking lot on the south side of Indianapolis yesterday. Stephanie is pretty sure this is a custom paintjob and not one of the limited editions from VW. The interior isn’t what VW would make on a limited edition.

Thanks for posting this picture! I saw this car the other day in Indy and i fell in love with it! But i really wish it was a limited edition VW instead of a paintjob.. 🙁

It was actually a special edition, only the 2003 models,they did both the purple and also a blue/green one. Hard to come by, I am currently looking to buy one! But they are out there.
Actually – it isn’t one of the special edition Chromaflares. This is a custom paint job. My wife can pick out the details to explain – but I know we looked at the interior details, among other things. Stephanie is an expert on New Beetle models and paint jobs – we routinely show our New Beetle at VW shows. That’s why we stopped to take photos of this one in particular; she has detailed photos of both the purple and blue/green chromaflares from beetle shows – her friends own them. When we saw this one, she did a double-take, because the mix of colors isn’t quite the same as the purple chromaflare, so she went to drool on it.
I am putting my 2 owner 03 Purple/Cyan Chromaflair up for sale. 69k miles. Great condition.

Hi, I actually have the violet/green chromaflair beetle. It is not custom but one of 50 sold in the USA as far as I know.
If anyone has any information about it I would love to know.
