B&B Makes a Bad-to-the-Bone Volkswagen Beetle


B&B Automobiltechnik has released a new aftermarket program for the VW Beetle.

You don't see very many tuning packages for the Volkswagen Beetle but after taking a gander at B&B's latest aftermarket program for the classic German car, opinions about the little car are sure to change. Based in Germany, B&B Automobiltechnik has given the VW Beetle some added power in the form of a new exhaust system and some tweaks to the engine. Three power stages have been made available for the Beetle's 1.4 TSI engine and four stages have been produced for the Beetle's 2.0 TSI engine.

The top of the line 2.0 TSI engine cranks out an impressive 320hp and 310 lb-ft. The enhancements come from an increased turbocharger and intercooler along with a stainless-steel exhaust. Performance times have been measured at a 0-62mph sprint in 5.6 seconds and a top speed of 155mph. On the exterior, B&B has added an aerodynamic body kit and some high-performance brakes to handle the Beetle's added power. It sits on a set of Alus wheels available in sizes ranging from 17- to 20-inches.
