Limited-edition Beetle starts at under $30,000

Volkswagen has announced pricing for the latest limited edition Beetle variant. The car is called the 2014 Beetle GSR and starts at $29,995 for versions featuring a six-speed manual transmission. The GSR will also be available with a six-speed DSG dual-clutch automatic transmission for $31,095.

Volkswagen plans to produce only 3500 of the yellow black GSR models globally. The car gets 19-inch Tornado aluminum wheels and features to 235/40 tires and black brake calipers. Inside the vehicle, the yellow and black theme carries through on the sport seats and the leather wrapped steering wheel.

Power for the GSR model comes from an EA888 turbocharged direct injection 2.0-liter TSI engine producing 210 hp and 270 pound-feet of torque. That allows the vehicle to accelerate from a standstill to 60 mph in 6.6 seconds. The vehicle also promises a top speed of 130 mph.
