The 2013 Volkswagen Beetle GSR pricing was announced earlier today for both the six-speed manual, and six-speed DSG dual-clutch automatic. Pricing begins at $29,995 and $31,095, respectively. Only 3,500 of the yellow and black GSR will be built globally, taking its cues from the 1970s.
The new Beetle features a yellow and black color scheme that seeps into the interior. The body and R-Line bumpers are mainly yellow, with a black roof, mirror cabs, and trunklid. The GRS features yellow and black racing strips with GSR lettering above the side skirts and large rear spoiler. On the inside, the GSR features a black-trimmed leather steering wheel with contrasting yellow stitching, an R-Line dash pad, GSR shift lever, leather-wrapped handbrake lever, and black floor mats with contrasting yellow embroidery.
The 2014 GSR is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter TSI engine that produces 210 horsepower and is able to go from 0 to 60 in 6.6 seconds with a top speed of 130 mph. The new Beetle comes with the Fender Premium Audio System, panoramic sunroof, RNS 315 navigation system, keyless access and push-button start, Bi-Xenon headlights, LED daytime running lights, heated front seats, Bluetooth, three-color ambient lighting, and three auxiliary instruments that include a clock with a stopwatch function and boost gauge.
