Orders for the all new 2012 Volkswagen Beetle are now being accepted on a new online Vehicle Pre-Order (VPO) system, and Volkswagen of America is hoping to get more people to place their orders with a new vehicle to sweeten the pot. The "Black Turbo Launch Edition" is being offered to the first 600 people who place their orders online. Each model will be sold for $24,950 (quite an increase over the base $18,995).

As its name suggests, the Black Turbo Limited Edition will be offered in an exclusive black pearl paint and a new spoiler. This exterior will be combined with 18-inch alloy wheels and large brakes with red calipers. For the interior, the Black Turbo will get Bluetooth, iPod connectivity, three-color ambient lighting, sport cloth seats, and an 8-speaker audio system.

Under the hood, this special edition will feature a turbocharged 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine that delivers a total of 200 HP and 207 lb-ft. of torque. It will be mated to a dual-clutch automatic transmission.

Honestly, in all the presented Beetles, this one is the one I most owed. The rich black paint that covers the bold figure of this Black turbo was impressive. Wow, the wheels are farther concerned in this Turbo, where it is more nicer and a lot attractive. Who cares if it has only 200hp, if this Beetle has the looks that everybody wanted?

I have to agree with you ConcernCitizen, I either didn’t expect that this Beetle would be very striking and awesome like this. Well, I only hope that its engine is quite good enough for it.

I never thought that beetle cars will be as beautiful as this. My first impression about beetles is wrong. How did they make it look promising? I really like its exclusive color.
