Volkswagen Unveils Beetle Dune Concept At Detroit

By   |   15 January,2014

This is the new Volkswagen Beetle Dune Concept and it looks really cool. This pays homage to the Baja Bug and we would like to see it make it to production as quickly as possible. The concept is painted in “Arizona”, a yellow-orange metallic, with two-part wheelarch extensions that are offset in black. Like other off-road oriented VW's there a lot of rugged styling elements done.

The wheel housings widen the body by 1.1 inches per side to give a total width of 73.4 inches, an increase of 2.2 inches over a stock Beetle. The overall length has increased by 0.5 inches to 168.9 inches and the car is both 2.0 inches higher off the ground and 0.8 inches taller.

The huge 19-inch wheels and 255/45 tyres add to the presence to this car. Just like the exterior the interior is funky as well and being based on the Beetle R-Line it is no short of power with a 210 bhp engine. We like.
