Volkswagen Beetle GSR Limited Edition

The Volkswagen Beetle is a name which takes us way back in history, which allows memories come back to life and which makes us conscious about the way ages change and things together with them, too.  The Volkswagen Beetle entered production for the first time in 1945, although it was designed sooner, in 1930. The Beetle was thought as an economical car and back then it shook the world through its futuristic and unique look. The same shape has been kept over years, and now everybody can recognize the bug at the first sight.

The Volkswagen Beetle GSR is the German company’s more awesome version of the Beetle Turbo that comes as a limited edition. A number of 3,500 units will be manufactured and 100 will go to the UK clients. The Beetle is all dressed in yellow and black paint, making it worth the name. The vehicle comes with its own livery, as well as a rear wing and 19-inch Tornado wheels wrapped in 250/40 rubbers. The same yellow and black colour theme is kept on the inside on the car, too. R-Line brand makes room in here, too. The vehicle has R-Line sport seats, R-Line dashpad and a leather sporting steering wheel, a GSR gear stick, black floor rugs, of course with some yellow elements on them. The car also wears a badge with the special edition’s number (from 1 to 3,500).

The Volkswagen Beetle is powered by a 2.0 liter TSI petrol engine which generates 210HP (154 kW) and 280Nm (207 lb-ft). It sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.3 seconds and it is expected to have a fuel consumption of 38.7 mpg with CO2 emissions of 169 g/km. The Volkswagen can be ordered with a 6 speed manual or DSG gearbox. The correct sum clients have to pay for the vehicle starts from $29,995 or $31,095 if they wish for the DSG dual-clutch model.
