It is a fabric laminate material with an acrylic square weave facing, rubber inner-layer and filament polyester backing and available in black.

Volkswagen showcased the Beetle Denim Limited Edition convertible featuring the Haartz Denim fabric.  The   topping material is a special offering from Haartz called the Twillfast RPC HT (high-tech) Weave. This material is an acoustically enhanced three-ply topping with acrylic twill weave facing, rubber inner-layer and polyester dobby backing.  The vehicle is available in the colors pure white or stonewashed blue and the dark blue Denim soft top is the perfect piece to complete the vehicle’s look.
