VW Presents The 2011 Phaeton

Here’s the new generation of one of the world’s most refined luxury saloons, the VW Phaeton.

The Phaeton always had a conservative and discrete design, but the quality of engineering and attention to details in this car is just bewildering! The new also follows the same recipe, but everything is tweaked in it for the better.

The design has been redone and become mores sporty thanks to the new bumpers and grilles, but it stays loyal to the original form. You can still mistake it for a Passat which is like 50 grand cheaper, and that’s a good thing!

You can have the Phaeton with a 3.6 litres V6 FSI engine developing 206 kW / 280 PS, or a V6 TDI with 176 kW / 240 PS. You may also go for a V8 petrol with 246 kW / 335 PS and maximum torque of 430 Newton-metres, but the best choice is indeed the 6.0 liter W12 engine with a colossal 450 hp. All models are fitted as standard with 4MOTION all-wheel drive system and a highly modern sir suspension system for maximum ride comfort and handling precision.

Standard equipment on the Phaeton V6 and V8 with long wheelbase also includes electrically adjustable front passenger seat that can also be adjusted from the rear seat (on 4-seater), seat covers in leather as well (heated seats in front), an electric tilt/slide glass sunroof, illuminated make-up mirror in the rear as well as an electrically actuated sun shade for the rear windscreen and manual shades for the rear side windows. The Phaeton V8 is also distinguished from the V6 models by its two chrome tailpipes and laminated glass for all windows. Identical, on the other hand, are its 17-inch alloy wheels in “Impression” design with 235 tyres.
