who ever filling in the description section of that webpage is not the brightest person out there about the "modded RSI replica". They provided incorrect information about the engine as a:"Engine: 4 - Cyl. 4 CYLINDERS 3.2 LitersStandard Equipment:4 CYLINDERS 3.2 Liters "Now look at the motor pictures and count the spark plug wires. I counted 6 plug wires...So maybe a newer VR6 3.2L Just my

Yeah looks like some of the information is based on the vin number. Probably a good thing for anyone hoping to license it for street use.A twin turbo 3.2VR6 awd Beetle with RSI body seems pretty damn cool to me - even if it is not a real RSI

Value is what you are paid for, not what you list it for. I would love to know what the car really sells for not what some dealer lists it for.

this looks familiarhttp://www.hpamotorsports.com/projects/rsi.htmthey list on their site 14-16k for the 4motion conversion, and more $$$ for the turbos and the labor. I bet with the price of the car whoever had it built paid at least 60khttp://www.hpamotorsports.com/r32.htmhttp://www.hpaownersclub.com/jw/index.htm but I think I still want their r32 more than this one

If it wasn't this one then there was a NB exactly like this for sale a few years ago on ebay. Guy also wanted 60 large. I sent him an email just to ask about the twin turbo setup and the AWD conversion. He said he wasn't really anticipating selling the car, he just wanted to see what kind of interest there might be. This is a sweet ride but I can think of a bunch of other thigns I'd rather dump 60 grand on.

I really think it's actually quite the steel imo....... for 60K you get a car that will womp on a 120k 911 turbo.That HGP kit is money, about 500+hp with similar torque numbers

Yup that's the same exact car. The owner sold it to the dealership and they obvviously have no idea what they bought. Cool thing is all the body parts are acctual Bettle RSI parts. But there is no way he is gonna get 60 for it
