This 300HP Turbo Beetle is a BEAST

Beetles are a staple of the free-love generation. Whenever you pass an old Punch-bug on the highway, it's safe to assume it's just a couple ol' Deadheads freewheeling it to a Phish concert. This '59 custom Beetle thunders like the Flash loading a Howitzer, and at 2:15 of this video, you can hear it charge into battle like a Motorhead song. Sporting over 300HP through a 2165cc custom built engine out of L.A. with custom turbo, a custom control module, W/A cooler, and race-spec driveline, all on a budget of around $30K means this screaming battle Beetle is no slouch.
