2005 Volkswagen Phaeton W12 4dr Sedan (6.0L 12cyl 5A)
This car has all one could want in a cruising car. I bought it for long trips on the freeway and trips into NYC and Boston. The suspension is wonderful and with the W12, the car can get out of its own way also. As someone who races GT cars in 2 professional series, this is a great car for what it's meant to be. A nice street car with ample power, predictable handling, and the best interior space I been in.
The interior is A1 in every way.
6 speed tranny is needed. Throttle lags unless in sport mode. Sat nav is a bit cumbersome.
