The Volkswagen Beetle — especially the original one — is a very appreciated model among tuners and enthusiasts alike. It has an infinite tuning capacity, so you rarely ever see two like-tuned Beetles roaming the streets.
MR Car Design announced today a new tuning kit based on the newest-generation Volkswagen Beetle that improves both the look and the performance figures of the little "Bug." The kit includes software optimization, car body ennobling, an exhaust system, a set of wheels and a set of upgraded brakes.
MR Car Design spent the majority of its time under the Beetle’s hood where it updated the 2.0-liter, TDI engine with a new software that increased the total output up to 210 horsepower and 309 pound-feet of torque — a healthy bump from the standard 140 horsepower and 236 pound-feet of torque. The kit also includes a new exhaust system, a new G-Ride air suspension and coilovers.

Volkswagen Beetle by MR Car Design in Detail
The car sits on a set of 19-inch wheels wrapped in 225/35R19 tires. MR Car Design then added a new, fully electronic G-Ride air suspension system that the driver can adjust by remote control or set it to adjust automatically. This air suspension drops the Beetle closer to the ground, increasing the model’s handling characteristics and its look.
The tuner also offers a wide range of wheels, and, depending on the customer’s taste, numerous colors and textures for the foil wrapping.
