<div id="gt-res-" ="almost_half_cell"><div dir="ltr" style="zoom:1">Uruguayan President Jose Mujica, with his Volkswagen at home in Montevideo. Mujica, considered the leader of world's poorest state for its austere way of life, received a $ 1,000,000 offer to sell your Volkswagen from 1987 to an Arab sheik.

Great!


I imagine him saying to our president: "Come and drive in my car ..."


Our president might say that 40 years ago he deamed of such a car because our president is from the East of Germany and had to drive "Trabant".

Whished the up! was as good as the KÃfer once was.

Yes!

The actual substitute of the original Beetle or KÃfer, is the UP!
