All new while 2012 VW Beetle Exterior
Bolder, more dynamic, more masculine. A comparison to the 1998 New Beetle
shows this: nothing remained as it was on the old car: "The Beetle is now
characterized by a clean, self-confident and dominant sportiness. The car
not only has a lower profile; it is also substantially wider, the front
bonnet is longer, the front windscreen is shifted further back and has a
much steeper incline. All of this creates a new dynamism," explains Klaus
Bischoff. While the New Beetle was defined by three semi-circles (front
wing, rear wing, domed roof above it), the new model has broken free of
this geometry. The roof profile actually runs distinctly lower and can be
considered a continuation of the Ragster concept car shown in Detroit in
2005 -- a type of hot rod based on the New Beetle. The new Beetle is
bolder, more dynamic, more masculine.

2012 ABT Speedle
A new ABT.
In the midst of developing a new "Speedy Beetle" tuning program for the
all-new 2012 Volkswagen Beetle, ABT Sportsline has released these preview
As the largest tuner of Volkswagen Group vehicles, ABT plans to upgrade all
engine variants in the range. Starting with the 1.2 TSI the standard 105 PS
(77 kW / 103 bhp) will be increased to around 140 PS (103 kW / 138 bhp),
while the 1.4 TSI (standard: 160 PS/118 kW/157 bhp) will have around 210 PS
(154 kW / 207 bhp). The top of the range 2.0-liter turbo VW offers with 200 PS (147 kW / 197 bhp)
will receive approximately 230/240 PS (176 kW /236 bhp). For the diesel
Speedles the 1.6 litre goes from 105 PS (77 kW / 103 bhp) to 125 PS (92 kW
/ 123 bhp), and the 2.0 TDI will have 170 PS (125 kW / 167 bhp) versus the
standard 140 PS (103 kW / 138 bhp).
Naturally, a comprehensive styling package will be offered as well. ABT
will give the Speedle a new front spoiler, a rear skirt insert, rear skirt
set with rear muffler and oval Exhaust
pipes, and side skirts. Decorative trimmings include front and rear
headlight brows plus the adhesive graphics kit. For the final touch ABT
Performance lowering springs give way to ABT DR wheels in inch size.
