eBay find of the day: HPA Motorsports' 400 HP New Beetle
Cars with 400hp are a lot more common than they were only a few years ago, but a VW Beetle with that kind of grunt doesn't come along every day. For the "buy it now" price of $29,900 you can get behind the wheel of this HPA Motorsports of Canada-built hot hatch with all the bells and whistles. The bug is a 1999 model with 38,592 miles and more mods than you can shake a stick at. The twin-intercooled, 2.8-liter engine is mated to a five-speed manual sending power to all four wheels, with stopping power supplied by Porsche calipers. Other modifications include updated rims and tires, body kit, enlarged front air dam, and Recaro seats.
Other than the balding tires and the prodigious torque-steer, we'd say this is one bad-ass little ride. Check out the 13 gallery images below.
