VW Beetle R: Coming with 270bhp!

VW Beetle R

The VW Beetle R will receive serious 270bhp. Nice!

VW will, indeed, be trotting out an R version of the new Beetle, according to a report by German car magazine Auto, Motor und Sport.

And the Beetle R will be getting, at the very least, says the report, the full 270 PS (199 kW / 266 bhp) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque from the same 2.0 liter turbocharged power plant that goes into the Golf R.
