Luxury Cars: You've met the Beetles, the original fab, four-cylinder everyman marvels that first launched Volkswagen's world-renowned recognition some fifty years ago. Now meet the headliner -- the car that the people actually want!

It was a tough act to follow, but the Phaeton program from VW is a virtuoso that merits center-stage attention and accolades of its own. Indeed, this 12- cylinder vehicle is Volkswagen's clarion call to discerning luxury-sedan owners seeking value and luxury in one unmatched package. This car is so quiet that you truly have a hard time believing the engine is on until you reach 100mph, and the external wind noise lets you know that, yes, Virginia VW really wants to make the best car in the world.

Fashionably perched onto 18-inch alloy wheels, the Phaeton is equipped with a six-speed manually interactive adaptive automatic transmission with overdrive, and an interactive, adaptive variable suspension. World-beating engineering includes Phaeton's patented power-speed sensing rack and pinion, variable-assisted steering provides drivers with velvety fluidity and command of the road.

The Phaeton also offers variety. You can opt for a convertible top or a removable sunroof. Its interior features genuine eucalyptus wood trim and a leather steering wheel atop a power telescopic steering column. Separate driver/front passenger climate controls and rear HVAC ducts keep the cabin cozy regardless of the weather especially important in those long Teutonic winters. A CD navigational aid along with a 190-watts, 10-speakers stereo system puts both driver and passengers into an incomparable pleasure zone. You may lose yourself in creature comforts, but you will never lose your bearings.

From style to wow, Volkswagen's Phaeton permeates opulence akin to the most revered masterpieces put forth from Germany's most esteemed manufacturers of elite sedans. And, just like it's $16,000 Golf cousin, it wears its VW nameplate proudly.
