You might have guessed that this article refers to the German People's Car and you are probably surprised to see its name side by side to supercars described in our news as it is rather unremarkable from the power-producing point of view. Volkswagen fitted the special version of Beetle hatchback with a turbocharged 560-hp engine and all-wheel drive. The super turbo Beetle is aiming at the American RallyCross Championship.
The unique vehicles were built in cooperation with Andretti Autosport. Their first public start is to take place at this summer’s X-Games — one of the stages of the Global RallyCross Championship (GRC) — which will be held in June.
