Okay...so I bought a Volkswagen...

Never really had thoughts of buying a VW, but once I saw this one, I knew I had to have it. Pretty impressive to, though there are several other makers influence in the body design. But, at any rate...here is a pic of my new Volkswagen...



Ya like it? :wink:

I could live without the Saleen vents just infront of the front wheels. Other than that I could live with it. I'm just waiting for the new Chrysler ME Four-Twelve.

Has VW made any of these for production or is this only a concept car?

I think VW has kind of abandoned the project and given up on it. I haven't herad anything about it since 2002. It was a concept car then and it appears it may stay like that forever.

Sad for them, these type of cars are good for the image of an company...

...the styling is very good for a VW.

yes it's a concept, they didn't wanted to compete with the other cars in their group as it could hurt sales unfortunually.
they did however use the design to base their 2003 Paris Dakar competitor on it., the car was called VW Tarek and driven by female rally ace Juta Kleinschmidt

i saw both cars, the W12 in Paris in 2002 and the Tarek in 2003 in i believe germany with the presentation of it
