VW Beetle R: Hardcore concept revealed!

VW Beetle R

VW has revealed the VW Beetle R concept at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Very cool and shiny!

The engine is the same 265-horsepower turbocharged 2.0-liter TSI four-cylinder, and though Volkswagen doesn’t mention it, the Beetle R is likely to get the same Haldex 4Motion all-wheel-drive system, too. Large 20-inch wheels and blue brake calipers accent the Golf R’s performance nature, while special bumpers with aerodynamic tweaks and wider fenders complete the look.

Inside, the Beetle R Concept gets Nappa leather and a set of sport seats, R-specific instruments, R-logo door sill plates, and brushed aluminum pedal caps. Blue piping and blue contrast stitching finishes the R look.
