VARX turns pink for season finale

1 Mins read

Volkswagen Andretti Rallycross drivers Tanner Foust and Scott Speed will race in their Red Bull Global Rallycross championship showdown in Los Angeles sporting new liveries on their Beetles.

Promoting #PinkBeetle, a limited edition model launched to increase visibility for The Pink Agenda—a non-profit dedicated to raising awareness and money for breast cancer research and care among young professionals.

“We’ve had a lot of success with our Beetle GRC this season, so it will be fun to mark the end of the season with a fresh coat of paint,” said Speed. “The #PinkBeetle already has lots of eager fans across the VW community, so I’m looking forward to adding some excitement to the launch of this special car with our 560-horsepower version.”

“It’s an awesome opportunity to be able to support a great cause like The Pink Agenda through our racing,” added Foust. “The Perfectberry Rockstar Beetle GRC will be hard to miss out on the track and I’m looking forward to hopefully put it front and centre—at the top of the podium.”

The first production #PinkBeetle recently sold at auction for $30,272 (approximately £23,299).
