Volkswagen announced that the first 600 exemplars from the new generation 2012 Beetle that will be sold across the US will be part of a special edition called the Black Turbo Launch Edition.
Customers can already start placing reservations online for a refundable fee of 495 USD, and the car will be distinguished by a set of unique 18 inch alloys, fog lights, bigger brakes with callipers painted in red, a rear spoiler, and a series of discrete touches at the interior, like aluminium pedals and sport seats covered in cloth.
The VW Beetle Black Turbo Launch Edition will also feature an extra glove-box, an 8-speaker audio system (RCD 310) and Bluetooth and iPod connectivity as standard. Under its skin the Black Turbo Launch Edition will feature a 2.0-litre 4-cylinder TSI engine producing 200 HP and 207 lb-ft of torque and responsible for an estimated 30 mpg on the highway.
The VW Beetle Black Turbo Launch Edition price starts at 24,950 USD and the car comes with a DSG dual-clutch transmission.
