Under the rear hatch is what’s believed to be this Beetle’s original powerplant. It has been treated to the right maintenance over the years, which means you will be hearing that iconic ticking from VW’s 1600cc flat-four for many years to come. As many VW fans already know, this is a Super Beetle. That means an improved steering box, bigger brakes, and a new MacPherson strut front end suspension. Combine this with the grip of modern Kumho tires, and this is one of the nicest ways to experience a vintage VW.
