Is Anyone Actually Going to Buy an iBeetle?The much-rumored iCar may have never made it into existence, but VolksWagen’s Apple-themed car has finally been made official: the iBeetle offers up some pretty deeply ingrained Apple tech. But who’s actually going to buy one?

In terms of, you know, functions, then apps provided by VolksWagen allow for Spotify integration, as well as the use of a G-Meter, oil temperature gauges, fuel economy diagnostics, and a variety of social features from the comfort of the dash. Probably best to use most of them when parked up, though. Available for advance sales in October 2013, with the car finally being made available in 2014, it’s designed around the iPhone 5. A shame there will be a new iPhone by the time you can buy it, then. [VolksWagen via Verge]
