Beautiful 1982 Vanagon Diesel Westfalia on 2040-cars
Dennard, Arkansas, United States
|This is a beautiful 1982 Vanagon Diesel Westfalia. the outside is in good condition, original paint and all. perfect for a new honey mooning couple, adventurous bachelor, or someone going through a midlife crisis and wanting to travel the states in style. Has a complete working stove, ice cold refrigerator and freezer combo, fold out bed and table, and a custom folding out bunk as an extra bed if you are brave enough to bring little ones along for the trip. It needs a little bit of love. The motor is outside of the vehicle as of now in pieces, its was originally taken in to fix a bad valve. you could rebuild it or i know where you can get an upgraded motor for 2000, the canvas on the pop top has some mouse chewing, and the rear passenger corner has had some body work that needs to be redone if you wanted to restore it like new. It has a rust spot near the bottom of the middle passenger side which you can see in the pictures. It just needs a little work to bring it back to it's original beauty. I had a rack on top installed originally worth $1,200.00 and a bike rack on the rear side originally $300. Rack lifts up with the pop to so you don't have to worry about that. I have taken it on a road trip with my two children into Canada while they where still young, and will always remember it as one of the best bonding experiences and most fun times of my life. It has been sitting in a garage for years and thought someone of similar taste might have some of there own adventures in it. Don't miss out on the experience worth every penny. The bikes and canoe are not included, just showing the vans potential. feel free to call me at 870-504-1922 if you have any questions!

The Volkswagen Group is comprised of 11 brands producing 240 vehicles across 49 factories throughout the world. So the best way to show off the range of the VW family is to cram a few thousand journalists and VIPs into a massive makeshift stand to outline the Group's goals, what's in the pipeline and what you'll be able to buy later this year.

To that end, VW pulled out all the stops on the eve of the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, bringing along 10 vehicles from across the range. We'll be delving into the details of each over the next two days of show coverage, but before that happens, you can read all about what we saw tonight from the cheap seats after the break.
Volkswagen looks to be getting ready to jump into the large three-row crossover game. The automaker has officially pulled back the curtain on the CrossBlue Concept at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show.

Designers and engineers penned the machine specifically for the Canadian and US markets, and with a plug-in diesel electric hybrid drivetrain, the hulking five-door, at least in concept form, should offer substantially better efficiency than anything else on the market. The drivetrain pairs a 2.0-liter turbo diesel four-cylinder engine with two electric motors for a combined output of 305 horsepower and a ludicrous 516 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed dual-clutch gearbox handles shifting detail, while one electric motor spins the front wheels. The second motor spins the back axle independently, make the CrossBlue a through-the-road hybrid.
As a result, the crossover can pop to 60 mph in 7.2 seconds. Perhaps more impressively, the CrossBlue can whir around on all-electric propulsion for up to 14 miles at up to 75 mph. Once the diesel four kicks in, the drivetrain can yield up to 39 mpg, though Volkswagen says the hardware can hit 89 MPGe on a full charge thanks to a 9.8 kWh lithium-ion battery pack. Check out the full press release below for more information.
Ahead of its official unveiling at next week's Detroit Auto Show, Volkswagen has released some preliminary details and images of its Passat Performance Concept - a car that, as its name suggests, adds a little more spice to the automaker's midsize sedan formula. VW makes no mention of any production intent for this road-ready-looking sedan, simply stating that the Performance Concept is a way to "explore this practical four-door's sportier side."
It certainly doesn't look too sporty, the only visual upgrades being larger 19-inch wheels, dual exhaust, bi-xenon headlamps with VW's Advanced Front Lighting system, LED taillmaps and carbon-look mirror caps. Inside, there are carbon interior accents and two-tone leather upholstery. But no matter, the real upgrades for this mightier Passat are found below the sheetmetal.
Powering the Performance Concept is a 1.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, churning out 250 horsepower and sending its grunt to the ground via a six-speed automatic transmission. For reference, that's 80 more horsepower than the Passat's base 2.5-liter inline-five, but 20 horsepower less than the potent 3.6-liter VR6. As for other performance upgrades, Volkswagen has fitted the car with a lowered sport suspension and revamped electronic steering, which should indeed add a bit more dynamic feedback to the already nice-driving sedan.
