The new VW Beetle is way cooler than the previous one, but it's still not high on the average guy's list of favorite cars. The Beetle Dune concept, the Beetle Turbo, and rumored Beetle R have helped a bit, but this is indeed the icing on that cake. 

This is an all wheel drive Beetle with "more than" 560 hp from a 2.0 I4, that has been set up for Global Rallycross. The drivers will be Top Gear USA's Tanner Foust and former Red Bull F1 driver Scott Speed. That spoiler is certainly helping this German coleoptera look a lot more aggressive too. Can we have a road-going version?
