    12 Cylinder Beast from Volkswagen!!! Phaeton W12

    Hi All,

    I recently had a warm weekend in Muscat, shredding up the tarmac in a much overlooked VW with what I believe may be the greatest 12 cylinder in existence. Well in Dubb'ya formation at least!

    I loved the car. Press down hard on the throttle and 'mass x gravity' changes to 'mass x gravity x 0.5'.

    Hope you enjoy the review.

    Phaeton has always been a great cruiser, only problem being it carries the wrong badge.

    It will be perfectly fine had it carries an Audi or Bentley badge...................

    Well there is..............Audi A8 and the Bentley Continental.

    Aren't they going to reintroduce the Phanteon in the US?

    SciFrog:

    yes, but my understanding is that we won't get the V12

    Re: 12 Cylinder Beast from Volkswagen!!! Phaeton W12

    That's correct. No W12 for the US. I know this because we get cars designated for the US in Oman, just usually with 'gulf spec' adaptations - usually 15-20% larger radiator, EU2 catalytic box and emissions requirements and 'zero' possibility of a diesel option. Our diesel is extremely poor quality. In fact, although petrol is cheap, it is also poor quality. The cayennes were affected badly, with our market being the largest recall market in the region for fuel pumps. Or so I was informed!

    The W12 is replaced with the V8, a la cayenne/touareg. There is however talk of the new touareg being sold in the region with the W12! Coming this july!

    Kiran.

    working on the transsyberian cayenne write up now - will post it up in three days.

    Nice writeup Kiran.  I've always been curious about the Phaeton.  Now a W12 Toureg is something I would trade our X5M in for!
