The last ever fleet of VW Kombi camper vans to be imported to the UK have arrived in Southampton.
They were shipped in from Brazil, after the factory is to close down.
The 99 vans were unloaded at the port of Southampton before being taken to Bristol, where they will be turned into right hand drive cars with luxurious interiors.
All of the vans are unpainted shells so they can be painted in various colours.
VW called time on the production of the iconic car due to the designs not meeting safety standards.
Five members of a gang have been sentenced to a total of twenty-two years for bringing Hungarian women into Britain and forcing them to work as prostitutes.

The Greenpeace activists jailed for their part in a protest against Arctic drilling are expected to be granted an amnesty by the Russian parliament.
This morning the Duma voted for an amendment that extends an amnesty decree to those charged with hooliganism. There will be a final vote at 4pm today Moscow time, but the only way the activists would be removed from the amnesty is if the entire bill is rejected - which is extremely unlikely.
The Russian parliament has voted to extend an amnesty bill to include hooliganism, the charge against the crew of 30 people detained on the Greenpeace protest ship.
The State Duma this morning adopted final amendments to the bill which would free thousands of Russians, mainly juveniles, veterans, pregnant women, and women with children.
The amnesty is extended to suspects of hooliganism, which means that charges against 30 people abroad the Greenpeace ship who were held after an oil rig protest in Russia's Arctic in September are likely to be dropped.
The bill is also expected to release Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Maria Alekhina, the jailed members of the Pussy Riot punk band who are serving two years on charges of hooliganism for an impromptu protest at Moscow's main cathedral.
Russian authorities have told a group of Greenpeace activists and journalists, which includes an environmental campaigner from Oxford, that they cannot leave the country while on bail for protesting against drilling in the Arctic.
Phil Ball, from Chipping Norton, was one of 30 people to be arrested back in September during the protests.
The group, known as the Arctic 30, have all been granted bail but have stayed in Russia as efforts to give them permission to leave are made.
Greenpeace revealed that Russia's Investigative Committee has written to one of the 30 indicating they are not free to leave the country.
The father of a 22-year-old man from Oxford who's gone missing hiking in the Canadian mountains has appealed for information about his whereabouts.
Tom Billings was due to return home last weekend -but hasn't made any contact with friends and family for more than two weeks.
Tom, who recently graduated from university, had been exploring Canada for the first time. He was staying in Vancouver and said he wanted to trek in the North Shore Mountains, where several rescue teams have been searching for him.
Sangeeta spoke to Martin Billings from our Didcot newsroom.

AFC Bournemouth legend Steve Fletcher and Sam Matthews visited Twynham Comprehensive School last week to help raise money for the Typhoon Haiyan disaster in the Philippines.
The duo visited the school, based in Christchurch, to sign items for the school to later auction to rebuild the lives of those affected by the disaster, which forced over 4 million people from their homes.
Fletcher also led a question and answer session with Matthews, as the two entertained pupils with tales about life as a footballer at AFC Bournemouth.
Staff at the school also took part in a ‘I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!’ eating challenge, and the whole school contributed to a spare change appeal, with the two activities raising, as it stands, an additional £115 on top of the money raised via the auction.
