Volkswagen Beetle R Concept

Check out pictures of the Volkswagen Beetle R Concept from the 2011 LA Auto Show.

The Volkswagen Beetle R concept is an interesting update to VW’s brand new overhaul of the classic bug. Designers started by widening the stance of the concept just a hair – by 1.2 inches – with new front and rear bumpers. Air intakes on the concept are also new, as are the unique brake calipers, new front and rear spoilers, and 20-inch wheels. Inside, you’ll find bucket seats that seem borrowed from a racing car, a new instrument cluster and gauges, brushed aluminum pedals, and new upholstery.
