The base of the Ragster (a ragster is the cross between a ragtop and a speedster) was a regular New Beetle Convertible. They made some changes, such as chopping the top, penning a new U-shaped roof, and creating a unique paint job with silver double stripes.

The interior differs from the original New Beetle, being a 2+2, and having distinctive control dials. Another item of interest is that the Ragster's rear-view mirror is mounted on its dashboard, a retro feature, reminiscent of the first Type 1s. The Ragster's profile[clarification needed] is lower than that of the prior New Beetle.
