Another version of the Triple Black Convertible which was available during the last model year for the Beetle at the regular sales price of $7140. The Black paint (L41) cost $195 extra.

What makes the Wolfsburg unique is its Black top combined with the smooth Ermine Leatherette interior (9001LW). All US Convertibles from 1979 on featured 165 SR 15 whitewall tires, GT (Lemmerz) Sport wheels, cigarette lighter, quartz crystal clock, dual outside mirrors, heated rear window, Leatherette covered sport steering wheel and woodgrain dash applique as standard.

This edition was probably limited and every Dealer got only one similar to the Epilog. There is discussion that that the Triple White, Triple Black/Epilog and Wolfsburg editions were special paint order only, rather than special editions in their own right.
