CM4Sci over on Eurobricks has posted details on a new LEGO vehicles set that is rumored to come out possibly later this year and that is the Volkswagen Käfer, aka the Beetle. He mentions that it’ll be similar to some of the previous vehicles like the Mini Cooper (10242) and the Ferrari F40 with set number 10252. Keep in mind that LEGO has already released a version of this car in 2008 with set 10187 so this might be the newer style of the Beetle.

Yes, I know that today is still April Fools Day but remember that Just2Good also posted about the Disney Collectible Minifigures (71012) last year on this same day and it was in fact true so don’t put this rumor on the backburner just yet but don’t get your hopes up too high if this is a false rumor.

I’ll have more details, if any, when they become available.

Update: CM4Sci over on Eurobricks has reported that the set will indeed be the Volkwagen Beetle. It will be available for general release on August 1st for $99.99 with it being available for VIPs in July.
