Yes, It is the Volkswagen Phaeton. Volkswagen is soon going to launch an updated version of same which would cost Rs.76.3 Lakhs (Ex. Showroom Delhi). The car sports a powerful 3.6 Litre V6 Engine and a 6 Speed Tiptronic Gearbox. The Phaeton rivals with Audi A8, BMW 7 Series and likes. Here are some pictures -:
It is an average car.Cannot beat the S or the 7 or even the A8.It has not been successful worldwide also.VW is giving us a phased out model?

Don't you guys think that at that price you can get a better badge? VW at 80 Lacs plus makes sense? Because people who spend that kind of money for a car are looking at a prestige badge more than anything else?
