Technical specifications and historical significance

The Volkswagen Beetle 1200 was equipped with a 1.2-liter engine that produced approximately 34 horsepower (25 kW). A small but powerful unit for a vehicle of this size. The model had a 4-speed manual transmission and reached a top speed of around 112 km/h (70 mph).
