Volkswagen R GmbH has release two R-Line packages for the new Beetle in Europe. While VW hasn’t confirmed the U.S. arrival of the cars, odds are that the R-Line popularity here could persuade them to start shipping them over.

Outside, the Beetle receives a new R-Line bumper and rear diffuser. New side body panels and door mirror housings are finished in body color. R-Line badges are sprinkled appropriately around the car as well as two R-Line wheels. An 18” “Twister” style and 19” “Tornado” style, each can be selected in optional black or white finishes.

The interior receives a sport seat system covered in an active-breathing fabric called “Kyalami” design. It’s then embroidered with R-Line logos on the front headrests. A leather-trimmed sport steering wheel, gearshift and hand brake boot are all finished in “Art Grey”. Decorative inlays throughout the cabin come in a distinctive “Dark Vanadium” finish. If that doesn’t tickle your insides, the entire interior can be finished in the optional R-Line badged black leather (“Vienna”).
