The German company will use the Chicago Auto Show to unveil a very special Beetle which will make its racing debut in a Rallycross competition in the U.S.
Rallycross is a relatively short timed race that takes place on mixed terrain (land and asphalt). There are usually bumpy sections that allow cars to jump as far as 20 meters in the air.
