The W12 blows away the competition..

2005 Volkswagen Phaeton W12 4dr Sedan (6.0L 12cyl 5A)


It seems all the automotive editors are most concerned about whether or not VW should have built this car and whether or not people will pay this much money for a VW badged car. The editors instead should concentrate on what a magnificent car this is and the fact that it is practically hand built in a marvelous new 'glass' factory in Dresden. It is rumored that the Bentley Continental (with which the VW shares many parts) will soon be built alongside the Phaeton. There are approximately 300 W12's out there in the USA. It has been a tremendous buy at the '04 closeout prices, and well could become a classic.

Best Features

Tremendous power available. The turbine like sound of the W12 engine. Every feature in the universe. Quiet. I feel like a King while driving it.

Worst Features

The only thing I can think of is having the ability to turn on instrument lighting during the daytime without the headlights being on.
