Super Bug: Beetle GetsTransplanted With Subaru Impreza WRX STi Boxer Engine

Modified VW Beetle 1970

This 1970′s VW Beetle was only intended to have 44bhp but its original 1.3-litre air-cooled engine has been ripped out in favour of a 2.0-liter turbocharged boxer variety from a Subaru Impreza WRX STi. Various engine upgrades accompany the switch, it also gets new wheels and brakes from Porsche, although suspension upgrades were not noted – yikes!!!
