2015 Beetle R model appears to be on the way, spotted testing - Spyphotos
Excellent news here that a Beetle R high performance model is on the way. The vehicle was spotted testing as you can see in the photos below. The Beetle R is expected to essentially mirror the recently revealed MKVII Golf R
drivetrain. That means a 296 horsepower 2.0 liter direct injected and turbocharged four-cylinder motor with a DSG dual clutch transmission mated to all wheel drive. This makes for a much more desirable Beetle model than the upcoming Beetle GSR
Bodywork changes are minor and the car is not as aggressive as the Beetle R concept unfortunately. Regardless, let's all hope this model comes to the United States and be thankful Volkswagen seems intent to produce it.
