Re: Phaeton pics from French dealership (DrewD)

Nice pics, but you are wrong on the price shown. Look at the sticker again. The car shown is for $116,800 Euros. The fine print before the $56,000 price is for the V6 model (which wont be here in the States anyway)!!

6 more cylinders, 1 more bank, 24 more valves, all equals 60k EUR!!!!!

I think there is a lot more to the W12 model than just the extra 6 cylinders. Things like power seats in the back, motorized adjustment of steering wheel, more luxurious interior, 4wd, active suspension, etc. I don't know all the details, but the impression I have gotten from various posts and articles is that the W12 model boasts all sorts of wizard gadgetry and far more luxurious appointments. Still, is it all worth 60K EUR? I don't know
