With the last Beetle rolling off German carmaker Volkswagen's production line in Mexico on Wednesday, the hatchback's legend of more than 80 years has come to an end.

In its factory in Puebla, Mexico, Volkswagen held a ceremony to commemorate the shutdown of the current, third-generation Beetle and its last vehicle will be displayed at a local museum.
