    Wonder what it feels like to drive that thing? Never thought I'd see a Beetle with 500 horses.

    I've always had a theory about that car. And with the engine upgrades and braking upgrades, I'll bet it could be proven.

    My theory is that if you hit 80 mph in that car, slam on the brakes you will do a foward somersault. I swear!!

    Saw it today... sweet car. FCI actually had something like a 700hp version of a Beetle several months ago. It had tons of body panels and goofy looking bumpers.... but beneath the bonnet, oooo la la. It had more pipes and hoses stuck into it than a Las Vegas hooker, but it was spectacular.

    Yeah, how can a Ferrari dealership sell an $80k V-Dub, when they'll have many $80k Ferraris surrounding it?

    I'd be surprised if they could get much over 40K for that car.

    That's what I was thinking.
    Well maybe it would be understandable if it had the vase in it. ;)

    Yeah, but how cool would be to kick some Camaro/Mustang/Vette's ass in a stop light drag with a Bug??? :D
