Power, performance and handling

A 420 horsepower W12 engine propels the Phaeton stretch. It was built from 3 Phaeton bodies, all reinforced in Volkswagen’s tradition for superior safety.Because of its 22 foot size it is limited to a ceiling speed of 112 mph, which is ok because who wants to get anywhere fast when sitting in the perfectly adjusted leather seat of the Phaeton stretch?

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder

Reviews have come back mixed as to the look of the Phaeton stretch. Some say it looks like a stretched Passat, a mid size sedan whose appeal is aimed at young professionals.Others say that it is decadent and looks like it would appeal to royalty.Whatever your opinion, you have to admit that a 4 wheel drive stretch is pretty cool, and that 4 wheel drive might even come in handy.
