    1347460140

    Volkswagen isn't afraid to do ads that are a little different... or even a lot different; this is no secret, nor is it new. An ad in various national papers in India, though, including the Times of India, might have gone a black box too far in search of a buzz-worthy response. First, some ...

    1342094400

    Sebastian Trager of Germany is mad for the Flintstones. So he took a Volkswagen Polo, ripped off everything but the motor, chassis and wheels, and then covered the rolling bits with a replica that he built of Fred Flintstone's car. Other than the Polo underpinnings, about the only thing he ...

    Official: Volkswagen Polo R Line at least looks the part
    1335960000

    German automakers display something of a fetish when it comes to turning ordinary vehicles into performance models.

    Video: Polish team develops own Volkswagen Polo rally car
    1324994340

    News doesn't travel fast in Poland. In fact, very few things travel all that fast in Poland. Sure, the emergence of Robert Kubica on the Formula One scene has shown well for the Eastern European country, but when he tried his hand at rallying, well... he almost lost it. (His hand, we mean.) So ...

    1308069000

    A Volkswagen Polo is a small car. Queen's epic "Bohemian Rhapsody," by contrast, is a huge song. Finnish musicians the Porkka Playboys inexplicably and delightfully decided to combine the two. The Playboys crammed their bodies and instruments into the old hatchback and promptly proceeded to rock ...
