Two local Oprah Winfrey Show fans drive home in 2012 Beetles they received on the “Ultimate Favorite Things” episode.
Today, Boucher Volkswagen of Franklin, the premier Greater Milwaukee Volkswagen dealer, welcomes the all-new 2012 Beetle to its showroom floor, and hands over the keys to two local Oprah Winfrey Show fans who received free 2.5L 2012 Beetles as giveaways on Winfrey’s “Ultimate Favorite Things” episode that aired November 17, 2010.
Redesigned for only the second time in history, the sportier 2012 Beetle is a modern interpretation of the iconic Beetle design. It balances classic beauty with modern edge and no-compromise German engineering, offering enhanced performance and fun-to-drive dynamics that define the Volkswagen driving experience.
“Boucher Volkswagen of Franklin is thrilled to offer Wisconsinites one of the most highly anticipated vehicles of the 21st century—we know Beetle fans have been eagerly waiting for this day,” said Pat Easterlin, General Manager of Boucher Volkswagen. “Yet, with its fierce and sporty design, extra cargo space and improved fuel economy, the 2012 Beetle is sure to gain a new generation of admirers as well.”
Boucher Volkswagen will host Wisconsin’s two recipients on October 13th, 2011 at 6:30pm. We would like to invite all media partners, customers or future customer to stop by and witness a piece of Oprah’s legacy at work!
