Volkswagen with a 2.0L Boxer Engine


If you believe that even with its run-of-the-mill 44bhp 1.3-liter air-cooled engine, the 1970's Volkswagen Beetle is a tough car to handle on the road, then you can only imagine what it would be like to try and control a Bug fitted with the zappy 2.0-liter turbocharged boxer engine from a Subaru Impreza WRX STi.

To make matters worse, the German dealer who listed the converted Beetle STi on a Romanian car sales website called 'Webcar' doesn’t mention anything about suspension upgrades. The description makes word of numerous engine upgrades along with Porsche-sourced brakes, wheels and other accessories. The Subaru Boxer engine is said to produce 282hp (210kW).
