An absolutely stunning Volkswagen Santana Variant, Spotted in China in the Gulou area in Beijing by Reader Han W., thank you for the pictures! The good Volkswagen is painted in light yellow and dressed up to the max with an all-black grille with a GTI badge, a chrome strip between the bumper and grille, …
… a black side window, a chrome strip over the full side, chrome strips over the wheel arches, chrome strips over the door gaps, chromed window frames, chromed door handles, a chrome strip starting at the A pillar and running to the D-pillar via the roof, a partly chromed roof rack, sporty multispoke alloys with a red center, and whitewall tires. This car, is truly a work of art.
More beauty inside with red leather seats sporting the ‘Shanghai’ logo in period-correct handwriting.
The first generation Santana has a long history in China. Production of the sedan started in 1983 at the Shanghai-Volkswagen joint venture and the Variant was added in 1987. Both remained in production until January 2013. The current Santana was launched in December 2012 and is so far only available as a sedan.
