The aggregation at Everyday Driver is active a daydream abounding of us are analytical about, but not adventurous abundant to try, owning a acclimated VW Phaeton and Maserati Quattroporte. The cartage were abstruse marvels in their time but today represent some of the best capricious cartage money can buy. To see what it’s absolutely like to own these different vehicles, Tod and Paul accept a alternation of videos cataloging their experiences, and today they accept a acceptable one. Top acceleration runs in old affluence sedans on the Bonneville Salt Flats.
Upon its debut, the VW Phaeton was set to drag the VW cast borrowing affluence trimmings and ability from Audi and Bentley to assemble a world-class affluence sedan. To drag the Phaeton, VW added every affection accessible authoritative it a hopelessly circuitous car to maintain.
The Phaeton was the championed by VW Group administrator Ferdinand Piech who abundantly gave his engineers ten ambit to advance the Phaeton. Abounding of these ambit are not accessible ability but one archetype is the Phaeton charge be able to drive for 24 hours at 186 mph (300 km/h ) with an alfresco temperature of 122 °F (50 °C) while accepting a commuter alcove cooled to 72 °F (22 °C). Today a acclimated Phaeton is a arrangement for the antecedent acquirement amount but will do its best to boring broke its owners.
