On rare occasions, we decide to do
something very special in a very limited way.
This is one of those rare occasions.
The Limited Champagne Edition II.
A whole line-up of special VWs. With special
gleaming exteriors. Specially appointed
interiors. Even a special 4-door Dasher hatchback
that has never before been
available in this country.
And because they're Volkswagens,
whatever the vintage, you can be sure they're
economical, dependable and engineered
for superb performance.
But like any great vintage, there's only so
much and no more.
So if you decide to be first on your block
with a Champagne VW, there's a good chance
you may also be the only one lucky enough
to own one of these very special Volkswagens.
