The world's third largest carmaker Volkswagen (VW) seems to be determined to continue the epic of the Beetle car. At the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show, VW unveils a new sport Beetle.
Emphasizing its sport character, the two-door car wears a front lip spoiler. In addition, the coupe also gets LED daytime running lights incorporated inside the headlamps for better safety. Providing the car plenty of downforce, VW also provides the car a rear wing which is significantly larger than the production model. Further distinguishing itself from the production model, Beetle R Concept also has a rear diffuser and quad tail pipes at the back.
Inside, the legendary car offers a lavish cabin with a pair of bucket sport seats, which are upholstered in black Nappa leather. Making the cabin sportier, VW also adorns the car with unique instrument gauges along with aluminum pedals and door sills.
VW, however, has not revealed any detail of the car's engine. Yet, because of its "R" label, the car is expected to use the same engine as Golf R's and Scirocco R's, which is a 2,000 cc TFSI four-cylinder engine with 260-270 bhp of power. (sgcarmart)
