Trivia

Herbie The Love Bug was a 1963 Volkswagen Beetle deluxe ragtop sedan painted in Volkswagen L87 pearl white. Under normal circumstances, the interior would be a matching white. However, Herbie's interior was painted a special non-reflective grey color so the camera and studio lights would not reflect. See more »

When Herbie crashes into the table at the gypsy camp, the gypsy setting the table throws both hands in the air, but in the next shot both his arms are at his side. See more »

Quotes

Wheely Applegate: [sees their opponent Bruno Von Stickle whiz by them, and he says a line that Jim said earlier, that goes with the problem] Well, you can believe this: We are now out of the money, because 'sometimes a comeback comes second.'
Jim Douglas: Who's giving up, buddy? Not Me!

Rubbish but sort of endearing
17 July 2013 | by (Lincolnshire, UK) – See all my reviews

If you thought Herbie trying to kill himself by driving off a bridge in 'The Love Bug' was daft, wait until you see him acting horny in this bewilderingly silly second sequel. Dean Jones is back as the driver competing in the Paris to Monte Carlo rally; this time his sentient VW falls in love with another car in the race, a Lancia driven by Julie Sommars.

By this point in the series the energy and charm is lacking even more than in 'Herbie Rides Again'; the movie is overlong and threadbare, although it's watchable thanks to a few funny bits, the cast's frantic mugging, and the return of Jones, who turns in a typically likable performance.
