VW Sends 100 Examples of Limited Run Beetle GSR to the UK


Adding to the many Volkswagen Group-related news coming out this week (thanks to theongoing Wörthersee Tour), there's a little something that concerns British consumers, as the German brand announced today that it will ship 100 examples of its new Beetle GSR special edition model to the country out of a worldwide total of 3,500 units.
Available for order now with first deliveries in the UK this September, the new Beetle GSR is powered exclusively by a 208bhp (210PS) 2.0-liter turbocharged petrol engine, with the six-speed manual model priced at £24,900 (OTR RRP), and VW asking for a £1,500 premium for the dual-clutch DSG transmission.
The GSR nameplate, which stands for ‘Gelb-Schwarze Renner’ in German and translates to stands ‘Gold-Black Racer’ in English, pays homage to the original Beetle 1303 S GSR from the 1970s.
A mixture of yellow and black shades can be found both inside and out of the car, though, VW says it will also offers buyers the option of a more subtle Platinum Grey and Black color combo, which doesn't make much sense considering what the name of the car means…
Added features include the R-Line design package, 19-inch ‘Tornado’ alloy wheels with 235/40 tyres, R-Line sports seats and steering wheel, the use of special interior fabrics, R-Line dash pad, GSR gear stick, leather handbrake lever gaiter and black floor mats with contrasting yellow embroidery.
