Volkswagen “GRC” Beetle

2014-02-06 14:13:03

The opportunity to work on Volkswagen’s first entry into the world of global rallycross is an honor. Volkswagen and Andretti Rallycross unveiled the new GRC Beetle on the floor of McCormick Place at the 2014 Chicago Auto show alongside drivers Scott Speed and Tanner Foust.

The build process was hectic only due to the time constraints that we were working under, but the project was a fun and very rewarding adventure. The response the GRC Beetle has been receiving has been very positive and we are grateful.

To see the video on what went on to build this GRC Beetle, please visit our “Videos” section.


FMS Automotive Does It Again! Jetta Style!


Following the incredible response of our SEMA show Beetles from 2012, our pair of MK6 Jetta’s from SEMA show 2013 are in route to receiving the same media attention as their predecessors.

“We had such positive feedback last year after the Beetle experience with several customized Beetles, we took advantage of the limited production GLI Edition 30 launch to bring it together here in Herndon with the two SEMA show Jetta’s, and our Jetta accessory car for another featurette in the showroom,” said Robert Gal, Manager, Accessories Product Planning.

Featured is a high performance 2.0T equipped Jetta sedan pushing over 400 horse power and a tribute Jetta 1.8T inspired by the very limited 1989 Helios Jetta GLI Special Edition completes our vision of creating the ultimate Jetta experience, garnering attention from top automotive magazines and social media hubs across the globe. Enthusiasts all over the globe will have an opportunity to see our Jetta’s in person as they will be making their way to the VW National Aftersales meeting in Nashville, Tenn. and then appear at several VW enthusiast shows through the country this summer.

Before it’s countrywide tour, our Jetta’s will be displayed in the Volkswagen Showroom at the Herndon Headquarters! To have any vehicles displayed at the Volkswagen Showroom is a great honor and to have 4 cars displayed in 2 consecutive years is an achievement that very few teams can claim and we are extremely proud. Thank you for all of your love and support. At FMS Automotive we don’t just build cars we build experiences.

Jetta Body Side Moldings

FMS Automotive brings back performance and heritage to SEMA 2013

FMS Automotive returns to the SEMA show with two highly modified Volkswagen Jetta models.

• 400+ Horsepower Jetta brings to life any Racer’s dream
• 1.8T Jetta pays tribute to the 80’s special edition ‘HELIOS’ Jetta GLI

After the incredible response to their three SEMA show Beetles from 2012, landing them coverage in multiple US and European magazines, enthusiast blogs, as well as on display at multiple enthusiast shows, and on the lobby floor at Volkswagen of America’s Herndon, VA headquarters, the FMS Automotive team is excited to unveil their two new custom vehicle builds for this year’s SEMA Show 2013. With support from Volkswagen Genuine Accessories and other partners, FMS Automotive focused their SEMA show efforts on two impressive Mk6 Jetta’s: A high performance 2.0T equipped Jetta sedan pushing out over 400 horse power and a tribute Jetta 1.8T inspired by the very limited 1989 Helios Jetta GLI Special Edition.


Performance Jetta FrontOutside

The matte finished candy white performance themed Jetta is finished with premium Axalta Coatings paint, accenting special features of the vehicle including the roof, rear spoiler, and front grille in gloss black. The aggressive front brings together a Jetta Hybrid grille and a Golf R bumper with front splitter custom made by FMS Automotive. After the fenders were widened approximately two inches on each side, FMS Automotive blended the wide body rear to a GLI bumper that accommodates a custom dual exit exhaust with oval tips. The Golf R side skirts were modified to fit and are complemented by FMS’ all-new SEMA show released body side moldings.


Performance Jetta RearThe Jetta’s newly found wide body is shod with staggered 19×8.5 and 19×9.5 TSW Jerez wheels featuring silver centers and chrome lip. The wheels are wrapped in 245/35R19 & 275/30R19 Nitto NT-05 high-performance tires and brought to a stop with Brembo 4 piston brake calipers and 365x29mm cross drilled rotors. Sitting on an H&R Street coil over suspension system, the white beauty also possesses H&R Sport sway bars.

Forward motivationPerformance Jetta Engine

At the heart of this project Jetta, is VW’s 2.0T four cylinder engine enhanced with APR Stage 3+ Turbo Kit good for 425 hp on premium 93 Octane pump fuel. The engine was beefed up with APR rods, wristpins and performance pistons and to help it breath, an APR carbon fiber cold air intake system with intercooler was installed.


Performance Jetta InteriorFMS Automotive’s attention to detail is impeccably illustrated throughout the interior of the car. The black and beige Recaro Sportster CS seats match not only the reupholstered rear seats, but the door cards, steering wheel, hand brake, Performance Jetta GLI Steering Wheeland gear shifter as well. To complete the premium interior package, FMS Automotive craftsmen made a custom trunk rack to hold and display two Shoei helmets as well as an additional spare TSW wheel. Volkswagen Genuine Accessories provided an RNS315 navigation system with back up camera, a custom sound box and digital sound processor while ECS Tuning contributed an integrated digital vent gauge. Finishing touches to the interior are Corinthian Textile Solutions provided custom trunk liner and carpeted floor mats which are highlighted by aluminum pedal caps and logo’d door sills from Volkswagen Genuine Accessories.Performance Jetta Trunk



What’s old is newHelios Jetta Front

Painted in the blue and black paint scheme of the Helios Jetta GLI Special Edition from 1989, the 2014 tribute 1.8 turbo Jetta brings back key features of its patriarch. Starting the exterior package off is a Volkswagen Genuine Accessories body kit painted in gloss black that contrasts the factory dark blue body color. Light blue pin stripe accents to the grille and other trim give the project a modern twist. While FMS Automotive’s body side moldings were matched to the body color, other accent pieces such as the spoiler and side mirrors were painted in gloss black to match the body kit. Under the rear bumper, an upgraded custom sport exhaust was also added to the 1.8 turbo Jetta.

Modern performance braking and handling

Helios Jetta RearBraking duties are handled by Golf R brake rotors and calipers which were custom painted with the “HELIOS” logo. They sit comfortably behind the mesh spokes of Volkswagen Genuine Accessory‘s classic looking Motorsport wheels coated in ceramic gunmetal gray shod with 235/35R19 Nitto INVO performance tires. Cornering performance is handled by H&R Street Performance coil overs which also give the HELIOS tribute its aggressive stance when standing still.

‘89’s interior turned contemporaryHelios Jetta Interior 2

Recaro’s Specialist seats were reupholstered to have blue and grey diagonally striped inserts to mimic the original HELIOS Jetta GLI seats. The back seats, steering wheel, hand brake, and gear shifter were also reupholstered to match using the same light blue threading seen throughout the interior. The floors and trunk are lined with custom Corinthian textile mats and with embroidered light blue “HELIOS” logo. Volkswagen Genuine Accessories brushed aluminum pedal caps and logo’d door sills were also added as interior highlights.

Upgraded electronics

Helios Jetta InteriorVolkswagen Genuine Accessories provided a full navigation system with back up camera, a custom sound box and digital sound processor. Lighting systems on the inside and outside were upgraded with modern OEM LED lighting systems.

FMS Automotive makes the window at Volkswagen Headquarters!

It’s always a great feeling to see your completed project cars displayed in your booth at the SEMA Show, but it’s a whole different level when your work is showcased in the window of the Volkswagen Headquarters in Herndon, Virginia! The FMS Automotive team was overcome with joy at the sight of their three amazing VW Beetles being displayed in the window of Volkswagen Headquarters itself. The 1956 Tribute Beetle, built completely by FMS Automotive, was sitting in a featured location right on the main lobby floor. A series of 2012 VW Beetles were also featured throughout the museum including the two toned silver and matte black FMS Beetle and the European Car/FMS Automotive Beach Beetle Cruiser. The white TDI Beetle featured at the Chicago Auto Show was also included in the museum. Even the model Beetles painted and built by FMS Automotive were on display in a case.

As Volkswagen employees pass the vehicles every morning, many quickly noticed and commented on the work done by the FMS Automotive team. Upon entering the headquarters, the FMS Automotive team continuously received praise and positive feedback from several VW and Audi employees. Even VW President and CEO, Jonathan Browning has taken the time to sit in the ’56 Beetle and appreciate the workmanship of the FMS team.

Check back soon as we release a promo video shortly to show the FMS presence at the Herndon Museum!

A powerful presence by FMS Automotive at the 2013 Chicago Auto Show
