Volkswagon bought all the recycled Indian Red and Flesh crayons when being politically correct became fashonable. They use these recycled crayons as the base for their sound deadener.

I've never been in a Beetle - old or new. My '08 Jetta GLI doesn't smell really any different than any other of the wide variety of cars I have owned.

After a hard run, the outside/exterior/engine bay does give off a "hot rubber" smell.

I think the smell is from the undercoating and wax sealer
