Looks pretty impressive. Volkswagen is on a frenzy and laying its nets on new target groups as time goes by!

it probably uses the dial, I know a jag that has that type of setup. I'll take my 5 speed over a dial anyday!

It's just hard to picture James Bond shooting an MP5 out the window with one hand, and delicately turning a dial to shift gears with the other...

If you look at the picture closely you can see engine start/stop in the middle, and P R N D around the edge of the knob, meaning it's most likely an automatic.

It doesn't look too bad, kind of like a german version of the solstice. And it looks like the fuel filler cap is on the hood, that's a little different.

You have to hand it to Volkswagen, they do know how to design a realistic looking concept car when most of the others I see look like something from a sci-fi movie.

The doors look like something off of a 80's car the center console looks like something out of Stargate Atlantis. The dash is pretty cool other then the alternating colors in the gauges. The designed is kinda 350Z convertible with a mazda miata and soltice stolen design que's with a twist. All and all 4 out of 10 thumbs down.
