of all the automotive eye candy being exhibited at the shanghai auto show, one specific model is sure to catch people’s attentions, just for the name alone.  volkswagen has teamed up with apple to create the ‘iBeetle – all the comforts and reliability of the VW fully integrated with a newly designed docking station and special iPhone application integrated into the dashboard. the car comes in seven different exterior colors with galvano grey and chrome handles and wheel covers. black vienna leather sports seats stand out with light ceramique seams. owning an iPhone is obviously key to enjoying the new capabilities, but users must also download the beetle app that puts a new array of digital accessories at your fingertips, including spotify, expert (extended dashboard functions on your iPhone), trainer (calculate driving times, distances, fuel economy, and share tips such as traffic data or route preferences on social media networks), postcard (sends your current location to your friends), photo (takes photos inside the car), and milestones.
