a rare copy is for sale

Produced in only 251 copies, the Beetle RSi is Volkswagen’s rarest model. One of them is now for sale on eBay.

It is a car that does not go unnoticed, but remains very rare on our roads: indeed, the Beetle RSI is the most extreme version of the New Beetle, but it is also the rarest production model in Volkswagen history, with only 250 copies produced between 2001 and 2003.

In fact, there have been 251 copies in total, the latter being a special and unique production for a Volkswagen executive, recognized by its blue paint, while all 250 models produced were painted in metallic gray. One of them is now up for sale on eBay in the UK.

This Volkswagen Beetle RSi looks straight out of the track, with its body kit extreme including shields, fender wideners, specific rocker panels, not to mention a huge spoiler and a small spoiler at the top of the tailgate. 18-inch OZ Superturismo rims complete this bestial look, not to mention a revised sports suspension, a specific chassis, more efficient brakes and an exhaust system signed Remus.

Volkswagen Beetle RSi: only 28,164 km on the odometer

But the most unexpected element is hidden under its hood: the Wolfsburg firm has equipped the Beetle RSi with a 3.2 liter VR6 engine

of displacement, developing a power of 224 horses for 320 Nm. This big six-cylinder was taken directly from the Golf R32, and transmits its power to the four-wheel drive of the 4Motion system via a six-speed manual transmission. the 0 to 100 km / h is swallowed in 6.7 seconds, for a maximum speed of 225 km / h.

The car is 100% original, and displays only 28.164 km (17,500 miles) on the odometer. It appears to be overall in good condition, with the exception of the interior where the orange leather Recaro seats show some signs of wear. Aluminum inserts, Alcantara trim and carbon fiber elements complete the sporty ambience of the model.

The owner asks for the sum of 45,000 pounds, or the equivalent of approximately 52.700 euros. By way of comparison, it was displayed at 75,000 euros when it was launched in 2001: a completely insane amount for a Volkswagen!
