Super Beetle

When we first saw the new (new new?) Beetle on the VW display at Worthersee 2011 I personally thought it looked awful and to be honest not much changed on that front when it was released to the dealers.

Skip forward a year or so and you think someone’s crazy for bagging one or painting one in original Beetle colours. But what happens when some crazy Americans get their hands on a brand new Beetle and a written off Golf R. Well apparently the result is a Super Beetle.

With a basic plan including a big power 2.0T engine, 4wd and some motorsport inspired touches it was sounding like any other drunken conversation with the lads but these lads are actually midway through building this!!

Here are the first few updated and all future updates can be found here.

Enjoy.
