The engineers at VW decided that the new 2012 Beetle should adhere more to the male driver. As we all know, the previous generation Beetle was a bit of a chic’s car. Although the new Beetle looks sleeker than the previous generation, it still carries the tag of a chic’s car.
The good people at VWvortex are hell bent on making it a man’s car. When we think of a man’s car, we tend to think Porsche, Ferrari, Lamborghini, etc. Since VW owns Porsche, why not use that as an inspiration to make the Beetle more male friendly. VWvortex were given access to the new 2012 Beetle and they got to work right away by borrowing visual design from the 911 GT3 RS.
The new Beetle RS receives bright orange 20 inch wheels, with low profile Continental tires. On the sides, matching color stripes with the words, Beetle RS carved out just like the GT3 RS. To make it even more visually appealing, blacked out chrome and badges wrapped in 3M brushed titanium set it apart.
Behind the 20 inch wheels, you’ll find 14 inch Brembo brake discs. No other modifications are planned until the car hits production, when that happens; VWvortex plans to tune the engine with an addition of turbocharger kit, exhaust, and a locking diff. They also plan to make a GT3 style rear wing to finish off the Beetle RS.
