After it's release in 1998, the VW New Beetle has gone on virtually unchanged. For the 2012 model year the bug is getting some new bodywork. It appears they are trying to make it less cute, and the styling brings it more into line with the Mini Cooper, and the Fiat 500. VW has also announced they will be offering an R-Version of the Beetle running a 270 horsepower, 252 lb-ft turbocharged 2.0 liter inline-four. This engine will be shared with the Golf R (an intermediate step between base and GTI specs). VW has promised both of these R types to the US market by 2013, VW faithful rejoice. LINK
