In his speech, Chairman of the Board of Management of Volkswagen AG, Dr Bernd Pischetsrieder, focussed on the significance of the new Golf and Volkswagen’s new slogan “Aus Liebe zum Automobil” (for the love of cars). The red Golf GTI, at the centre of the Volkswagen stand, was unveiled with the words “Aus Liebe zum Original” (for the love of the original).
Further highlights at the Frankfurt International Motor Show are the fascinating roadster study design concept R, revealed in recent weeks, and of course, the new Golf which is shown with various equipment and engine options.
