|Notes:||Volkswagen corrects one of the world's most iconic parking fails and reparks the 5th Beatle on Abbey Road to highlight Park Assist technology.
In 1969, a Volkswagen Beetle was wrongly parked on Abbey Road. Sadly, the parking mishap ended up on one of the world’s most iconic album covers. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of The Beatles’ Abbey Road, Volkswagen released a limited edition vinyl cover. But this time, with a perfectly parked 5th Beatle.
The tribute highlights Park Assist, a parallel parking assistant that automatically parks the car – a feature that was obviously not available 50 years ago. Volkswagen dropped the Reparked Edition in record stores and online, selling out in 2 hours and 19 minutes. All proceeds were donated to BRIS, a children’s rights organization.
