An awesome car n I believe VW lose 5 million on each car..............BUT...............why lose a marketing coup n resurrect an old icon brand that has nothing to do with that German car firm?

I find it hard to believe they lose anything like that on each car, what is the figure based on?

Reminds of the story about Aston Martin from way back... some famous dude said they would buy an Aston but only if they could have it for what cost to build, as it would be great publicity for the firm. When they took delivery they were presented with an invoice for twice the retail price...

they possibly do lose that much on each car at first. maybe not now that the brand has established itself. plus all the research and develpment that went in to the original car, will now make its way throughout the VW group and keep them as market leaders.

I still think that it is a slap in the face for every kid that buys a Polo or Up that they are subsidising some premier league football players flash car......
