Since the new VW Beetle uses Golf engines and gearboxes, we expect the vehicle to receive an infinity of tech tuning packages and we are here to talk about such a development. German tuner B&B has developed a set of tech updates for the vehicle, seriously increasing the power.

The 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, which allows the driver to play with 203 hp and 280 Nm (207 lb-ft) when it leaves the factory, has received five stages of power boosting: 240 hp, 250 hp, 265 hp, 295 hp and 320 hp & 420 Nm (310 lb-ft).

Stage 5 consists of a B&B turbocharger, an intercooler system, a complete sports exhaust and an ECU remap. Fitted with this pack, the Bug can play the 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) game in 5.6 seconds and offers a top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph), all for a price of EUR8,950.

B&B also played with the 1.4TSI unit, which comes with a stock output of 160 hp, increasing output to 210 hp & 285 Nm (136 lb-ft) or 225 hp & 310 Nm (228 lb-ft) via an ECU remap, or to 240 hp & 340 Nm (251 lb-ft) using a tweaked turbo, a sports exhaust system and a new air intake. The last kit can be yours for EUR5,950.

The tech story goes on with the addition of a set of 19- or 20-inch rims, as well as a beefier braking system that brings massive stopping power.
