The well-loved Beetle GSR will be back for 2014 at Chapman Volkswagen.  The GSR was originally a special Volkswagen Beetle launched in 1972, which proved so popular it sold out in just two months. Much like the original, only 3,500 units will be produced, but this time, they will be sold world-wide.

The 2014 Volkswagen Beetle GSR will be the most powerful Beetle in the lineup when it goes on sale in the second half of the 2014. It will feature a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, producing 210 horsepower and 207 pound-feet of torque. Along with the blistering engine, the Beetle GSR will feature 19-inch aluminum wheels, six-speed manual or dual-clutch automatic transmissions, and distinctive gauges to provide readouts for the clock, stopwatch and turbo boost pressure.

Much like original 1970’s model, the latest Beetle GSR will throw on a yellow and black paint scheme, which carries into the cabin. Owners will find black leather trim on the seats contrasted by yellow stitching. This Super Bug also boasts an R-Line dash pad, GSR shift lever and sill plates, leather handbrake lever, and black floormats with contrasting yellow embroidery along with a sequence-numbered Special Edition badge on the steering wheel.

The car will also feature the Beetle’s sporty R-Line bumper package. The Beetle GSR also comes comprehensively equipped with a Fender audio system, xenon headlights, Bluetooth connectivity, and push-button start. A Media Device Interface with iPod cable is also featured, as is three-color ambient lighting and aluminum-alloy pedals.

According to Volkswagen, the 2014 Beetle GSR performs a 0-60 mph time of 6.6 seconds and an electronically limited top speed of 130 mph.
