      " IAA 2011 - Beetle R Concept The Beetle as sports cars: World premiere of the Design study Beetle R Concept Beetle R Concept with individualized front and Heckpartie and 20-tariff rims Sport seat plant of the Beetle R Concept is worked in noble Nappaleder Wolfsburg/Frankfurt, 13 September 2011 The letter „ R" as auxiliary designation a performance promises on highest level with Volkswagen. Up-to-date this promise the gulf redeems R (199 KW/270 HP) and Scirocco R (195 KW/265 HP) with turbo-printing. In a world premiere Volkswagen shows now on the IAA in Frankfurt a third variation of this sporty topic: the Beetle R Concept. Basis: The 21st Century Beetle. Like its two strong brothers in the spirit, also the R-version of the Beetle developed before the gates of Wolfsburg into resounding the enterprise-own Volkswagen R GmbH. Still the Beetle R Concept is a Design study. Who knows the Beetle 2,0 TSI (147 KW/200 HP), white however, what dynamic potential in this new car puts. As „ R" the Beetle could exhibit a similar achievement potential, as the gulf R and Scirocco R. Exterieur with 20-tariff rims In „ Seriousgrey" painted Beetle R Concept optically already gives a very concrete view on a possible series version. Outside the study is equipped with 20-Zoll-Talladega-Leichtmetallrädern, as they are used from the Design also on the gulf R and Scirocco R. There however Talladega rims become in 18 - and 19-Zoll-Format blocks. To recognize under the Beetle wheels arranged with 5 three-fold spokes well: the blue brake calipers in the R-Design. Arranged new and broader bumpers The designers arranged the front and tail bumpers completely widened around 30 mm new. The bumper module in front consists those practically of 3 air intakes, in the contrasting color „ black Hochglanz" are implemented. The middle air intake supplies the engine with oxygen, the two outside contributes to the cooling of the brakes. The front spoiler, likewise in „ black Hochglanz" painted, is implemented as flat fragments (with a chrome border); Fragments of this kind are used for usual in racing. In order to hold the temperature budget of the engine also under extreme conditions within the optimal range, air discharge slots are on the right of and left in the hood. In the back the bumper exhibits likewise air discharge openings, which are merged into the aero dynamic concept of the Beetle R Concept. In addition also a diffuser integrated within the lower range of the bumper belongs. In connection with contrary to the Beetle standard models clearly larger tail spoiler including black outline edge, strong up to 200 HP, so ideal drift values at the rear axle are reached. Optically like a highlight the exhaust system with its 2 chromium plating double final pipes is acoustic. Laterally the bumpers change into the cantilever fenders; also those are accordingly broader per side around 15 millimeters. In „ black Hochglanz" the Seitenschweller is held; here trained is a noble chrome border. Also in „ black Hochglanz" painted are the roof, that here to the rear following upper section of the rear flap, the outside mirror housings and the door handles. Interieur with Nappaleder Sportsitzanlage As usual is the case for the R-models, also the Interieur presents itself sportily individualized. Drivers and front seat passengers take place on engine haven bowl seats with so-called Ergopads from grey Nubukleder. The seats with black Nappaleder are referred. Here stamped: the R-logo. The seams and piping of the seats are in the colour „ space Blue" worked. The contrasting color already used in the Exterieur „ black Hochglanz" in the interior among other things for the applications in the instrument panel and the Zierelemente around the Schaltknauf one uses approximately. the Interieur designers arranged R-specific besides the instruments. Were modified thereby both the central combination instrument (tachometers centrically in styles of sports cars) as well as the auxiliary instruments arranged above the center console. With the R-logo the entrance borders are improved. From brushed aluminum to be manufactured meanwhile the caps of the Pedalerie. Similarly to the seats with blue piping the textile floor mats were provided with a blue-black double setting in volume. "

      Bring this over DSG as the antidote to a manual only Golf R. This thing is freaking hot.

      Rumors fluctuate now on whether a Beetle R will have AWD or FWD. VW has supposedly built a concept that Dr. Winterkorn hinted might be at the Frankfurt Auto Show.

      We'll see.

      An AWD Beetle R would be extremely interesting and would probably help differentiate it from the Scirocco R in Europe. If it did come as AWD, that might be enough to make me consider it as a possible cost-saving option to the Golf R (assuming it's priced lower than the Golf R). All things being equal, though (like price and performance), my needs are better filled with the Golf. There is a unique appeal, though, in the more aggressive look of the Beetle R.
      There’s more to it than that, though. I feel the fast Golf is a part of me. We’ve grown up together. When it came along, all simple and full of fun, I was living in a flat in London. Now it’s soft and luxurious and I’m slouched in a house in the Cotswolds. It’s like 1970s rock music. New stuff comes along which I’m sure is cleaner and better produced but it doesn’t have the heart and soul of the original.

      I asked Jaime directly, and he said that it would most likely be FWD like the Scirocco R, but that AWD is possible. Point is... I think we need to start a serious lobbying campaign to get the car here with AWD. I'm so enamored by it that I'm considering putting off a potential Golf R purchase to get this.

      FWD and AWD, FWD price would be more affordable and if you have the extra $$ you can get an AWD.

      The Beetle just showed up here, so I wouldn't expect an R version until after the Golf R has had its run.

      Bring it!

      Speaking of the Golf R, we just took our first deposit on a new Golf R today! It is going to be sweet!
