2014 Volkswagen Beetle GSR

While the yellow/black design is unique and striking, in person the yellow appears light and milky, like the designers ate a bad enchilada and threw up all over the design sheet. The vast use of matte black and large 19-inch alloy wheels do detract somewhat from the vomit-like colorings, but only in a way that reminds you how bad the yellow actually is.

2014 Volkswagen Beetle GSR

February 8, 2013

Back in 1970, VW released the Beetle GSR. Limited to 3500 units, the “Yellow Black Racer” (Gelb Schwarzer Renner) looked remarkably like a bumblebee, and amassing just 50 hp, it produced about the same amount of power, too. For 2014 the bee returns, boasting the same yellow/black paint scheme, but a far more prominent powerplant.
