Volkswagen shows long-wheelbase Phaeton
Essen, Germany – At an auto show here, Volkswagen showed a Phaeton luxury car with an extended wheelbase that is approximately 120 millimetres longer than the standard Phaeton. Extended rear doors and a newly designed radiator grille characterise the car’s exterior, while inside the new Phaeton has more rear legroom. The long-wheelbase Phaeton will be available in Germany with V8, V10 TDI and W12 engines. Prices weren’t announced.
