April 19, 2009 - Deluxe Body Kit Styling for Underappreciated VW Phaeton by Hofele

Detailed images of preliminary design and styling for the VW Phaeton have been released and it is creating buzz.

When luxury car manufacturers BMW and Mercedes-Benz introduced competitively-priced lower echelon models that immediately ate into same-category Volkswagen sales - Volkswagen, the giant German auto maker, decided to respond in kind and go upscale. The resulting product from the makers of the "peoples car" was the Phaeton - an uncomprising saloon with comfort and technology that would merit some serious tire-kicking and lure luxury car owners away from their current brand loyalties.

In North America, where the Volkswagen Phaeton also had to compete against rebranded luxury Japanese lines like Lexus and Infiniti - the large VW badge fitted front and rear on the Phaeton was perceived as overreaching instead of the achievement the car actually was - that being a world class and top of the line executive machine. After only three model years ('04, '05 and'06), Volkswagen's luxury edition Phaeton was quietly withdrawn from the North American market amid whispers of Hindenberg.

Now, strong rumours are circulating - suggesting the VW Phaeton will be making a comeback in North America later this year. Regardless of the outcome - LLTeK's world wide shipping program will address concerns about getting your body kit styling conversion started wherever you live.

Industry analysts tended to agree that Volkswagen Phaeton sales stumbled in the market because the Phaeton was not rebranded from the outset and perceptions of the Volkswagen brand (even a $100,00.00 Phaeton) posing as a luxury vehicle was a bar set too high. The worst description seen was some review describing the car as nothing more than a Passat on steroids. LLTeK has the solution to this problem of perception - in the form of a body kit styling conversion by Hofele. These images illustrate how easy it is to take the appearance of the understated VW Phaeton and transform it into the car that more realistically reflects its true pedigree.

There are an estimated 3,000 VW Phaetons in North America (give or take) and recent estimates on sales show these vehicles selling for a fraction of their original cost, despite numbers that show owner satisfaction for this vehicle is consistently high. Call today for details on how you can transform the appearance of your present (or future) Volkswagen Phaeton - from non-descript to lightning bolt impressive.
