Mar 24, 2014 update to the Volkswagen Beetle TDi project car

The Beetle Visits Sebring

Our starting point: GRM World Headquarters. The Beetle swallowed our luggage with ease.
What's driving the Beetle like? We didn't pay attention. The road was straight, the stereo was on, and the A/C was blowing.
Our finish line: the finish line.

Sometimes cars are great because of the way they drive, or because of what they can do. Sometimes they’re great because of where they can take you. The Beetle is both, and we spent the weekend at the 12 Hours of Sebring with it.

The Beetle was a perfect appliance to make the six-hour-long drive in, but that will change soon. We’re signed up for an autocross in a few weeks–we’ll see if race slicks can knock the Beetle out of its comfort zone.

We love all VWs, whether water-cooled, air-cooled, gas- or diesel-powered. Subscribe to Grassroots Motorsports now.
