Driving the New VW 550hp Beetle GRC Rallycross

by Kenny Hoeschen

Tanner Foust of rally racing and Top Gear fame the chance to be the first one to drive the all-new 550+ horsepower Beetle GRC Rallycross. With a 0-to-60 time of just 1.9 seconds, it seems Volkswagen Motorsport and Andretti Rallycross have built a machine that’s more than ready to compete in the Red Bull Global Rallycross championship. On top of the Beetle’s 1.6 TSI 4-cylinder turbocharged and intercooled engine, the GRC has a sequential six-speed transmission and fixed-ratio all-wheel-drive system.

In the video, both Tanner Foust and Scott Speed reveal their GRC-ready Beetles fitted with their Rockstar Energy Drink and 7-Up liveries, respectively and they head out onto the track for the recent GRC event at RFK Stadium.
