Coinciding with the launch of the new Bourne Ultimatum movie, Volkswagen has launched an interactive stunt simulator that allows fans to play out their own stunts online as many times as they want. Users can maneuver any of six different VW models through different explosions, while altering vehicle speeds, props, sound effects and camera angles to make that perfect scene.

Product placement in the movie has several VW vehicles making an appearance, including the Touareg 2 SUV and Golf GTI, a smart move seeing that The Bourne Ultimatum has grossed more than $70 million in its first weekend. That's a hell of lot of viewers seeing VW's new models up on the big screen.

      heh, went to an advance showing of this with VW sponsoring it and I noticed a couple of things:

      The Toureg is disgustingly overpriced. They had a "nicely" equipped one there for almost US$50,000! That's disgusting.

      Also, in the big chase with the toureg and the police car, there is a big wreck and if you look close, the airbags in the toureg didn't go off.

      tell me again why the touareg is now the "touareg 2".
      just because they restyled it a bit (e.g. otherwise known as a facelift or refreshing) doesn't merit a "2" added to the name. typical VW effort to hype up their cars.

      The best use of a vehicle in the series has been Karl Urban's G-Wagon in Supremacy. :)

      I was too into the movie to notice but the first car Bourne uses to jump off the parking deck is a audi.

      A special rigged SUV was used with the stunt driver sitting on the roof and it looked like Matt Damon was driving.

      Hmm, my browser is complaining that I need the actual Shockwave player, not just Shockwave Flash. It's been a long time since I've seen that...
