Volkswagen has released today a new promotional video for the 544-hp Beetle GRC (Global Rallycross). As you may have read, this pocket rocket will be seen in action this weekend at the Port of Los Angeles two-race event.
Scott Speed will be behind the wheels of the #77 7UP Volkswagen while Tanner Foust will be driving the #34 Rockstar Energy Drink Volkswagen.
Under the hood of the Volkswagen Beetle GRC is a four cylinder 1.6-liter TSI turbocharged petrol unit rated at 544 horsepower.
The engine is matted to a six-speed sequential gear box and sends the power to the ground via an all-wheel drive system. As a result, the car can sprint from stand still to 60 mph in just 2.1 seconds. Enjoy the video and share it with your friends.
