Plans for New Volkswagen Phaeton Confirmed in Sao Paulo
It embodies Ferdidand Piech’s list of 10 parameters which it must fulfill, all very difficult and virtually unattainable for most cars, even others in its class. Now, while at the Sao Paulo International Motor Show, VW’s R&D Chief, Ulrich Hackenberg has confirmed that the company is already looking to replace the Phaeton, now 10 years old.
The new car would genuinely feel ‘very new’, and will include the group’s latest technologies, showing the notable progress the automotive field has made since it was first introduced. It will be underpinned by VW’s larger MLB platform, which will also be used to underpin the next-genereation Bentley Continental cars, as well as the next Porsche Panamera.
