The new Volkswagen Beetle R is set to be the fastest Beetle ever, even faster than the famous love bug from Herbie Rides again. The VW Beetle R Concept is by far the best looking version to date and it gives you a glimpse of what is easily achievable by the Volkswagen design team, this would also add to the current R line up which so far consists of the Scirocco R and Golf R.
No confirmation on the Power Unit yet, but expect to see the same 2.0 litre Turbo 266bhp engine found in the Scirocco R and Golf R, Volkswagen has also said the VW Beetle R could come with four wheel drive as standard.
Some of the outstanding features on the VW Beetle R include 20 inch chrome five spoke alloy wheels, sports bodykit which is 30mm wider front and rear which may not sound much but aesthetically makes a big difference. The rear of the VW Beetle R has been fitted with an oversized roof spoiler, rear diffuser for added down force and twin exhausts either side of the diffuser.
Grey Nubuck leather sport seats with the Volkswagen R branding and black high gloss inserts add a premium look to the Beetles interior.
Volkswagen will wait to see what kind of reaction they get from the general public before they give the go ahead to build the VW Beetle R. A standard VW Polo 1.2 TSI fitted with an R-line body kit shows what the Polo would look like in R clothing, which has fueled rumors of a production Polo R.
