2012 Volkswagen Beetle Sees First Tuning Job

The new 2012 VW Beetle seems to have truly adapted itself with a more modern look. VW approached fan base VWvortex to put their perspective on the Beetle. Although, the completely redesigned model looks a lot better and extremely improved over its predecessor, this particular light tuning job version is not street legal. VWvortex then asked their readers to submit ideas on how they would modify the Beetle by using Photoshop to illustrate their designs.

The most significant change has to be the wheels, which are a set of Porsche 19-inch GT3RS replicas, with a price tag of $1,500. Next up was a stainless-steel Golf/GTI 6 adjustable coilover suspension provided by H&R. They also used a Forge Motor Sport carbon dual intake system from their previous GTI project. VWvortex also installed a set of Brembo Stage II front brakes, which included 14-inch front two-piece cross drilled rotors, aluminum mounting brackets, four-piston radical mount calipers, stainless braided lines and pads.

Finally, VWvortex added some graphics to the sides and opted to go with a GT3RS graphic and 3M Titanium Brushed vehicle wrap material. VW fans will have to be patient as these modifications were only the first stage of development from VWvortex.
