2013 VWvortex SUPER BEETLE/SEMA: Collaborating closely with performance specialist APR, the Volkswagen VWvortex team transformed a 2013 Beetle Turbo into the ultimate 500-horsepower all-wheel-drive hot rod show car. The eye-catching exterior is finished in a lightweight paint alternative vinyl film of Oracal Matte Azure Blue metallic. Complimenting the body is an FMS Automotive custom rear wing; 19-inch fifteen52 three-piece Split Formula TR wheels and Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires. Under the hood, is a 2.0 liter four-cylinder equipped with an APR Stage IV GTX turbocharger system. To accommodate the significant increase in power, APR updated the fuel system and added a high-performance intercooler system, as well high-flow cylinder head and intake manifold; high-strength coated pistons; an upgraded balancer shaft; and a balanced rotating assembly. An APR RSC Turboback exhaust system was added to improve airflow while a DXD Racing Stage III clutch and Volkswagen Racing short shifter have been employed to help put all of the newfound power to the ground.
