Volkswagen has revived its Beetle Dune Concept from 2000, with a new interpretation of the concept based on the current Beetle.

If the sketches are anything to go by, the 2014 version will build on the original's look, with bigger wheels and arches, and more aggressive styling; although less aggressive than the similar Buggy Up! Concept from 2011.

The basics for a ‘beach-buggy’ are still present, however, such as an increased ride-height and some underbody protection, plus the newest version has now added two sets of rear-mounted ‘dune skis’ and LED daytime running lights.

Power comes from Volkswagen’s 2.0 litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine producing 155kW, matched to a six-speed DSG automatic transmission.

The 2014 Dune accelerates from zero to 100km/h in 7.5 seconds, on its way to a top speed of 225km/h.

Inside, the 2014 concept uses a similar theme to the original, with yellow and black seats, door trims and dashboard.

Updates include the glove box – which has been replaced by a grab-handle – along with a 7.7 inch touchscreen and three gauges mounted centrally on top of the dash.

Volkswagen says the Dune is just a concept for now, but German magazine Auto Motor Und Sport is reporting production is due to begin in 2015.

The 2014 Volkswagen Beetle Dune Concept will be on show at the Detroit Auto Show. Stay tuned to TMR for more news from Detroit soon.
