Volkswagen of America has disclosed that the 2014 Volkswagen Beetle GSR will have a starting price of $29,995 six-speed manual transmission models and $31,095 for six-speed DSG dual-clutch automatic versions. Volkswagen will just build around 3,500 Beetle GSR for global sales. The vehicle takes its cue from the GSR (“Yellow Black Racer”) of the 1970s, thus its yellow-and-black color scheme.

Yellow dominates the model’s body and R-Line bumpers while black governs the hood, trunklid, roof, and the exterior mirror caps. The model boasts of yellow/black stripes with “GSR” lettering above the side skirts and a large rear spoiler. The Beetle GSR features 19-inch “Tornado” aluminum-alloy wheels shod with 235/40 tires and black-painted brake calipers.

The vehicle’s interior features a yellow/black theme, sport seats, and a leather-wrapped sport steering wheel. The GSR’s black-trimmed leather seating surfaces and high-grip leather-wrapped steering wheel have contrasting yellow stitching.

The 2014 VW Beetle GSR now features an R-Line dash pad, a GSR shift lever, a leather-wrapped handbrake lever. The car also has black floor mats with contrasting yellow embroidery. To highlight the uniqueness of the car, a badge on the steering wheel is marked with the special-edition number from 1 to 3,500.

It is powered by a EA888-turbocharged and direct-injection 2.0-liter TSI engine that provides 210 hp of output and 207 pound-feet of torque. This allows the 2014 VW Beetle GSR to accelerate from zero to 60 mph in just 6.6 seconds and reach an electronically limited top speed of 130 mph. Ensuring smooth acceleration is the engine’s capability to deliver peak torque from as low as 1700 rpm.
