Five Speed Tiptronic Transmission!  In manual mode you will just be shifting out of second gear as you pass 60 MPH!  No problem merging with traffic! This unique Passat W8 has had only two owners - both with no children.  The present owner is a meticulous retired airline pilot who has spared no expense to keep everything in perfect condition.  When professional refinishing did not remove 100% of the headlight lens haze, both headlights were replaced with factory new ones, at $500 each.  Front brakes were just replaced.  Rear brakes are fine.  This car just passed the NH state inspection.  It comes with EIGHT brand new tires (less than 5,000 miles on them), one set of original VW alloy wheels and one new last year set of wheels & winter Michelins from Tire Rack - all wheels road force balanced. VW requires full synthetic oil and recommends oil changes every ten thousand miles.  I have had the oil changed every five thousand.  It has a trailer hitch which has only been used to mount a bike rack.   It has only been serviced ONLY by certified Volkswagen and Audi technicians.  It has never seen a Jiffy Lube or a McDonald's drive through.  No food has been eaten in this vehicle! In the three years that I have owned it I have only carried a passenger on two occasions.  The leather steering wheel is in almost mint condition because it has had a cover on it most of the time.  I just bought a new set of VW Monster mats at a cost of $99 - only because there was a small hole in the driver's mat.  Always garaged!  Other than two and a half years in New Hampshire it lived its earlier life in sunny Dallas, Texas where it was also garaged - so no sun damage.  Many luxury features like headlight washers!  Lots of parts from the Audi parts bin in this unique vehicle which originally listed for almost $40,000. Unlike later model wagons and SUV's the bottom of the back seats are hinged at the base and fold forward, providing a protective barrier between driver, passenger and any cargo. VW recommends premium fuel, which I have used.  However, it will adjust to and run on lower grades. With EIGHT cylinders the acceleration is smooth, vibration-free and awesome.  On cruise control at interstate speeds of 65-75 MPH it averages 26-27 MPG which results in a range of over 525 miles!  Note actual computer calculated range in one of the photos. Further than Boston MA - Washington DC!
List Price when new:  $39,275.00   All service records available. This car was ahead of its time safety-wise, with stability control and side curtain airbags!

VW agrees to halt next-gen rally car development to help others stay in WRC

Sat, 22 Jun 2013 09:00:00 EST

Volkswagen has petitioned the FIA to hold on to the current specifications for cars in the World Rally Championship, according to Autosport.com. The move is evidently an effort to keep as many competitors in the sport as possible, despite the fact that using the current spec racers may actually hurt Volkswagen's chances at winning. The three factory teams currently competing in the WRC are at the end of a three-year homologation cycle at the end of 2013, and new cars are expected to bow next year. But developing new racers could cost as much as $4.7 million.
That price tag would put M-Sport (which fields Ford racers) out of the WRC game for 2014 and would put Citroën participation in question as well. VW has already begun work on the next iteration of its Polo R WRC, and the hatch has nabbed four wins in six rounds this season. Now it appears that car won't bow until at least 2015. The FIA has officially agreed to freeze homologation of new WRC cars until the end of next season.

Volkswagen considering a four-door, four-seat XL1

Fri, 22 Aug 2014 10:15:00 EST

According to a report in Autocar, Volkswagen might have more in mind for the XL1 than mining it for advances to grace the next-generation Golf. Aiming to fight the Honda FCEV due for public consumption next year, we're told VW executives have put a four-door, four-seater version of the XL1 - it could be called XL2 - on the drawing board. The impetus is said to come from the top, with VW Group chairman Ferdinand Piëch intent on staying in the deep end of "super-efficent vehicles."
Autocar suspects the necessary changes could raise the weight of the car from 1,749 pounds to 2,068 pounds, which would make it four pounds less than the 2,072-pound Up! we drove a few years ago. Crucially, however, the mag thinks the extra capacity wouldn't change the two-seater's 310-mile-per-gallon rating, with tech tweaks and the aerodynamic benefit of a longer car offsetting the weight. Speculation is that the back seats would be staggered like the fronts in order to maintain the XL1's overall profile.
We recently heard about another XL1 variant that's gone off the radar entirely, the Ducati-engined XLR that we thought we'd see at the Geneva Motor Show and that was said to be going into production, so this one could go the same way. The biggest hurdle to making such an idea a reality, though, could be the price: the current XL1 costs 110,000 euros ($146,116). If VW really is going to compete with the Honda FCEV and the Toyota FCV - $70,000 in Japan - that might be where it wants to start.

European car sales up 8% in February

Sat, 22 Mar 2014 09:02:00 EST

Three weeks ago an analyst increased projections for European car sales this year, expecting them to climb three percent compared to last year instead of 2.7 percent. That number is a postive sign after years of hard times but it turns out February was especially good, overall European sales climbing eight percent on a wave of southern European recovery and discounts - and this comes after five months of gains including January's 7.2-percent jump over the year before.
The only country of Europe's five largest markets to post a decline was France, just as it did in January, Germany, the UK and Italy posting solid double-digit numbers, Spain rocking the charts with an 18-percent increase because of a government program to encourage trade-ins.
The only brand to miss the wave was Volkswagen, dropping 0.8 percent as it watched the double-digit growth at sister brands Audi, Seat and Skoda lift the Volkswagen Group sales up by seven-percent. Peugeot overcame flat sales at Citroën to improve the group by 3.5 percent, BMW and the Mercedes-Benz/Smart combo rose by four percent, the Fiat group jumped 5.8 percent, Ford was up 11 percent, the Renault Group 11.5 percent, General Motors 12 percent and the Toyota clan by 14 percent.
