The Volkswagen Phaeton may have been too far of a reach for the brand to sell well in the US, but the car itself was a serious accomplishment. The W12 is a monster while the 335-hp V8 is more than capable for a large and luxurious all-wheel drive sedan. It may look like an overgrown Passat and have the achilles heel of overcomplication, but some Audi wheels can address the prior and finding low-mileage examples like this one can at least delay the latter. Meanwhile, you’re going to be cradled in an epic luxury sedan that you bought for the price of a base-model Golf.

It may not be the fastest or flashiest, but some pragmatic German car fan is going to snap this up for pennies on the dollar and feel awesome rolling around with as many features as an S-class or 7-series. As a long-term proposition, the maintenance issues are known but Phaeton prices can’t really go much lower, can they?
I dunno – I love the “Challenge” wheels personally, but all the Phaeton wheels are pretty cool. I really thought these were just a downgraded A8 until I had a student with one at a winter driving school – the thing was unreal. Silent, silent, silent. You could not tell the car was running. Tach moved, but it was Roller quiet. The glass was super thick, the seats were so comfortable, and it never missed a step in the snow. It wasn’t showy, but it was supremely confident, a trait I think it has no matter what the conditions are.
On one hand, these are neat cars and certainly not common. On the other hand, the electrical side of these cars — because it’s a VW — scares the hell out of me. If I were in the market for an uber-German sedan, I would question why get one of these when likely for the same amount of ballpark cost (initial and repairs) you are probably in the same ballpark as a nice S8/A8, S class, 7 series, etc.
