Video: Watch Jay Leno try out a very unique rotary-powered Volkswagen Beetle

Volkswagen Beetles are known for many things, one of them being a reason to punch your siblings while saying, “no punch backs.”

But they are not known for going fast, that is, unless you shoehorn something at the back in place of the Beetle’s simple four-banger. Many owners have done that, ranging from more modern Volkswagen engine transplants, to even full-fledged Chevy swaps.

This latest swap however is something that’s even more of an oddball–a rotary swapped Beetle, which Jay Leno gets a chance to try on his latest episode of Jay Leno’s Garage.

Check it out after the jump.
