Some info about the VW history
VW a big favourite for all
VW, we have all heard of them. An absolutely wonderful car manufacturer. This company has many automobiles both ingenious and classic. Take historic the VW beetle for example. It was the first vehicle to come off of the production line. This model is still available nowadays, however it is a more newer style.
VW was started in the year 1937. Curiously what made this company come about had a little something to do with Hitler with his Nazi regime. Automobile s in Germany were very luxurious and what goes with posh is a high price tag. This meant they were only bought by those who could afford it. What Hitler therefore requested was a car to be produced that consisted of a fairly simple low cost design and able to transport two grown ups and 2 kids in some kind of comfort and safety. This vehicle is certainly a classic VW and is quite collectible with so many organizations and websites dedicated to the Beetle. However, though this somewhat iconic car bought VW much success in 73 the business was heading into problems, the type 4 and 3 automobiles they?d released sold in much smaller units than the Beetle which to had massive declines in purchaser. Fortunately VW owned Audi, who of course manufactured water cooled engines and helped pave the route for the massive success that was to come for vw.
Open arms awaited the launch of the Passatt in late 1973, basically a hatch back version of the Audi 80. This was closely followed by the Scirrocco in 1974. It was a car based on the soon to come Golf. The Golf was the soul of VW. This automobile was to be one of the best vehicles ever. It modeled wonderful Italian style for looks and of course utterly amazing reliability and build quality from the Germans. This car has been around for 38 years and continues to be favourite among the motorists and enthusiasts. In the late 90?s VW then took over 3 hyper car manufactures, these were Lamborghini, Bentley, and Bugatti. It was huge for VW and they wasted no time. Audi soon released a slimmed down Lamborghini range for example the Gallardo. Bentley gained success with the Continental range, this had record sales for Bentley at 10000. So for Bugatti, well it is all about the super Veyron with its record smashing fast speed of 254 miles per hour.
When you take a look at Volks Wagen?s history, it truly is an interesting one with plenty of adorable automobiles models and makes flying about. A automobile manufacturer with all this in its portfolio certainly does point out to us that they?re a super choice to purchase from. Yes they are not the cheapest but even used cars that don the VW logo are proven to be one of the best buys.
