Impressive car delivery

May 11, 2006 |

Mercedes-Benz R-Class 320 CDI Sport
Volkswagen has built a really cool and unique storage facility for cars in Wolfsburg, Germany. The 20-story high facility is used to deliver new VW cars to customers:

The best idea is to begin that special day with a relaxing trip to Autostadt followed by a tour until the big moment arrives: In a fully automated procedure, your new car is brought down to you from one of the 20-story Car Towers. Large signboards in the Customer Center show you when your turn has come. Then, you’re handed the keys, your picture is taken, the glass doors open and your brand-new car appears. You’re all set to go.

At the German site Auto motor und sport you can find a photo of the new Volkswagen Scirocco 2008. It’s just one photo taken from behind (looks like an official image actually), so it’s not a spy shot.

Volkswagen Passat 3.6

Volkswagen Passat 3.6
Volkswagen have managed to do quite a journey with their brand the last four or five years – moving right up in the luxury segment with the Phaeton and the Touareg. The new Volkswagen Passat 3.6 is spot on in the upper class segment – “It’s a mini Phaeton, not a large Jetta.“. The list price is $29,950.

Honda Civic Si vs VW GTI

Honda Civic Si vs VW GTI
Two classic sport compacts go head to head in this article over at AutoWeek. I personally would prefer having the VW GTI.

The VW won the drag race, but the Honda tucked neatly into its draft and when the corners arrived, pulled away both statistically and subjectively. So when the Pomona dust settled to the ground – literally – the Civic Si emerged on top.

VW Touareg V8 Wide Body
JE Design have a tuning kit for the VW Tourareg called ‘Wide Body‘. It’s not just a body kit though, you will get a power output of 500bhp, which will increase accelleration from 0 to 100 km/h (0 to 62 mph) from 8.1 seconds to 5.6 seconds(!). Nice.

VW Beetle with jet engine

VW Beetle jet engine
What do you think about having a VW Beetle with a helicopter turboshaft jet engine in the back? It doesn’t weigh that much and gives your little Beetle an additional 1350 horsepowers. Sweet.

The original site use Photobucket as host of it’s images which means that the only thing you can view at the moment are lots of ‘Bandwidth exceeded’ buttons, but fortunately you can find some images over at Engadget.
