Tanner Foust and former F1 driver Scott Speed will pilot a pair of Volkswagen Beetles with some serious balls starting at the June Summer X Games in Austin, Texas.
The news comes as part of an announcement Volkswagen made today that it will enter a 560-hp Beetle as part of its 2014 rallycross program. Both Foust and Speed will compete initially with European rally cross-prepped Polo. VW will partner with Andretti Sports Marketing for the new Beetle rally car, which will be powered by a turbocharged, direct injected TSI engine. Further details on the engine are still unreleased. Of course, it will direct power to all four wheels.
