Rallycross driver Tanner Foust in association with Porsche tuner RAUH-Welt Begriff have introduced a heavily modified Volkswagen Beetle at SEMA today.

The Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show is kicking off today in Las Vegas and it appears to be one of the most populous ever as it packs a wide array of customized vehicle, including this Volkswagen Beetle tweaked by Tanner Foust and RAUH-Welt Begriff who slapped on a wide body kit increasing the vehicle's width by eight inches.

It's based on the R-Line model and has received 18-inch Motegi Racing Traklite while inside the cabin it has a variety of R-Line accessories such as a pedal set and an upgraded shift knob. Some performance upgrades are also in the works for the four-cylinder 2.0-liter engine which in stock configuration develops 210 bhp (157 kW) and 207 lb-ft (280 Nm) transferred to the road through either a six-speed manual or a six-speed DSG.
