VW Beetle R to Boast Golf R Power

Published by on Jul 14th, 2011, No Comments

If you have driven the Golf R, you will be familiar about the power the VW vehicle comes with. We  hear that the VW Beetle R will get almost the same amount of power, thanks to the 2.0 liter TFSI unit that will be fitted into the car.

A new R version of the new Beetle model is being rolled out and it will get the full 270 PS (199 kW / 266 bhp) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque from the power plant.

According to a  report, the Beetle – a Europe specific vehicle – will be getting the 2.0 liter TFSI unit from the Golf GTI in a 200 PS (147 kW / 197 bhp) configuration. The car will most probably roll out later this year.

It will have the capability to race from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 7.5 seconds. Fuel consumption will be 7.7 liters/100 km and prices will start at €27,100.
