Volkswagen unveiled the hotted up version of the new Beetle, in concept form, at Frankfurt Motor Show.
The high-performance Beetle R comes with a body kit featuring new bumpers at front and rear, rear diffuser and a tall rear wing, wider fenders, “Serious Grey” pain job, 20-inch “Talladega” alloy wheels, and blue brake callipers in R design. The wheels, and the design of the body kit on the whole, are inspired by VW’s Golf R and Scirocco R.
Inside the cabin you get motorsport shell seats in gray nubuck leather, upholstered in black Nappa leather, with R logos and space blue stitching. You also get Black High Gloss and aluminum accents ad trims for more sporty feeling.
No word on performance figures, but since this car is similar to the the R members of VW family, Golf and Scirocco, it should have 260+ hp.
