      To obtain the seal of 'very sexy' from Helmut Newton is quite a special commendation. To be selected for a whole photo series is like a dream coming true.
 
And that's what happened with the Volkswagen New Beetle! Helmut Newton was just not able to resist its flowing curves. And the added attraction of photographing a car that is more of a cult for the young generation in particular. So, Helmut Newton went into a studio in Milan to set the scenes for the Volkswagen New Beetle!
 
As many people as possible were to enjoy the 'Autoerotic' series of photographs created. The New National Gallery in Berlin presented the photographs from 01.11.2000 during the exhibition 'Helmut Newton: Work'. The exhibition of photos taken over the last four decades subsequently toured the world. The photos of the New Beetle were also presented as gifts to other international photo museums.
  However, the real show stopper was that the photos were also on the Internet and everyone could download a motif on 30.10.2000 - the day before Helmut Newton's eightieth birthday!
