Volkswagen has just released an awesome new clip looking at its brand new Volkswagen Beetle Global RallyCross racing car.

The new Beetle GRC will be driven by Tanner Foust and former Formula One racer Scott Speed in the championship in place of the VW Polo currently used by the duo.

The new Volkswagen Beetle Global Rallycross car is powered by a tiny 1.6-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Despite its size, this powertrain puts out an insane 544 hp meaning it hits 100 km/h in less than 2 seconds! The car only weighs 2668 pounds so this too aids in the incredible performance capabilities.

Beyond the engine, the Volkswagen Beetle GRC car features ZF dampers with about 9.1 inches of travel. It also features 14-inch ventilated discs at the front and 11-inch discs at the rear with four-piston aluminium brake calipers at all four corners. The 17-inch racing wheels are wrapped in 240/640-R17 Yokohama racing rubber.
