I was at the dealer this morning picking up a friend who was dropping off her Golf and found one of VW's new Turbo S Beetle on the front of the lot. I have to admit, it was quite a beaut...
This one was a unique fluorescent orange boasting 17" rims with color-matching inserts. Orange and Black leather seating with the word 'Turbo' sewn into the headrest, body color matching interior panels and a fly Turbo badge.
Although the Beetle is not me (too small and big at the same time) this was an excellent specimen. Sticker was $24,975
I cannot find information on vw.com about the package, I assume it's an early 2002.5???
I haven't seen many on the road here...

Re: Seen the new Beetle Turbo S? (dkrutewicz)

Does it have any performance mods, or is it just wheels and spoilers?

I believe it has the 180hp motor and normal Beetles still have the 150hp motor.

Re: Seen the new Beetle Turbo S? (dkrutewicz)

Have any of you driven the 1.8T Beetle? I had the 150HP Beetle as a loaner for about a week and it was so much fun to drive. I quickly became envious of the 1.8T guys – the motor is so smooth and even though it was just the 150HP version, it was quick
I can’t even begin to imagine how much fun it would be with a chip http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Beetles have to much wasted space, I'll take my Golf any day.
Don't all the 2002 1.8t's have 180 hp?

I stand corrected.
The one on the lot here had the 180hp Turbo and a 6-speed.
