    We posted this a couple of weeks ago.

    I understand the driver was Don Cochrane of the London store. And the Beetle is anything but old under the skin.

    Also, the Beetle was a purpose-built track car with full roll cage, wide rear slicks for racing and it isn't street-legal like the Roadster.

    Cool showing but the Beetle is built for racing and max output for straightline driving and not everyday driving.
