12th Annual Cars On 5th Show

Where do you go to see the biggest horse gathering in town? Why, the 12th Annual Cars On 5th presented by the Naples Chapter of the Ferrari Club of America, of course.

IMG_5151

By 8am Saturday morning, 5th Avenue South was lined with more horsepower than you’ve ever seen in one block.

The annual show is the biggest Naples has to offer where you can go to see some of the rarest cars and biggest gatherings of one car brand. Supercars dominate the show with classics, imports, domestics, and the occasional bike sprinkled in. And puppies. Puppies everywhere.

We were setup with our partners Audi Naples showing off our beloved Classic Beetle and 1963 Double Cab, a new 2016 Silk Blue Metallic Beetle Convertible, a new 2016 VW Golf GTI manual, and a new 2016 Touareg- all of which you can come see in our showroom!

There were too many Ferraris, Porsche’s, and Corvettes to count, but several stood out; like this Slant Nose Porsche below, a Porsche 918 Spyder, a green Ferrari 458, a gorgeous white Ferrari Testarossa, a new Ferrari 488, 2 Porsche GT3’s and a GT3RS, several model year C1 Corvettes, and a rare Ferrari 512i BB. While these three brands dominated, Lamborghini was represented well with the showing of a rare 1967 350GT, a new Aventador Super Veloce, a Diablo, a Murcielago, a 50th Anniversario Aventador, and a few others. It’s impossible to point out every sweet car there, but a Koenigsegg CCX, Alfa Romeo 4C & 8C, several Ford GT’s, a 1974 BMW 2002 Factory Turbo, a Mercedes Benz 300SLR, a Noble M400 race car, and a Porsche Carrera GT are some worth mentioning. And we can’t forget the familiar faces of a widebody bagged Challenger and a 1986 Mercedes-Benz 190E Cosworth Edition.

IMG_5038

Vendors from around town and even farther out were set-up showcasing cars including Naples Motorsports, NUR Performance, Lamborghini Sarasota, Naples Luxury Imports, and Black Horse Motors.

As always the show was a hit, drawing in thousands of people, and dare I say, even more were in attendance this year than last! Needless to say, we are already looking forward to next year!

Volkswagen of Naples Reports VW reveals the Beetle TDI Clean Diesel at the Chicago Auto Show

At this year’s Chicago Auto Show Volkswagen announced that a TDI Clean Diesel model of the 2013 Beetle that will be available this summer at Volkswagen of Naples.

The 2013 Beetle TDI is the first TDI Clean Diesel Beetle we’ve offered since 2006, but we think you’ll agree that it was worth the wait. It’s the most fuel-efficient Beetle yet, with a predicted fuel economy of 29 mpg city and 39 mpg highway. Besides its excellent efficiency, what sets this model apart is what’s under the hood.

The Beetle TDI makes the most of Volkswagen’s innovative 2.0-liter turbocharged, direct-injection Clean Diesel engine, which puts out 140 horsepower and 236 pound-feet of torque. That’s great news for your right foot, because all that extra torque equals substantially more responsive driving.

We don’t use the term “Clean Diesel” lightly. Like our other TDI models, the Beetle TDI features an exhaust system with a particulate filter and no less than three catalytic converters: one for oxidation, one for oxides of nitrogen (NOx) and one for hydrogen sulfide. For those of you who aren’t chemistry a major, that means that engine emissions are reduced. For that, we can all breathe easier.

The Beetle TDI will be available in three trim levels, including a TDI with Sunroof and a TDI with Sunroof, Sound, and Navigation. All three levels are very nicely equipped, with standard features like power windows with one-touch up/down; cruise control; V-Tex Leatherette seating; the Kaeferfach secondary glove box; Bluetooth®; a leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel with audio controls; three auxiliary gauges; Keyless entry with push-button start; and a Media Device Interface with iPod® cable.

For more information and availability of the (Think) Blue Volkswagen TDI Clean Diesel Beetle, please contact Volkswagen of Naples at 866-364-0242, or visit their dealership in Naples Florida.

Volkswagen returns to the Super Bowl

New 60-second ad features the all-new 2012 Beetle, on sale at Volkswagen of Naples, Volkswagen’s redesigned icon.

Volkswagen of Naples announced today that Volkswagen of America, Inc. will advertise during the Super Bowl® for the third consecutive year. Following the success of last year’s two 30- second spots, Volkswagen will premiere one 60-second spot at the beginning of the third quarter of Super Bowl XLVI.

The spot will feature the all-new Beetle, which arrived in dealerships in September. The 2012 Beetle was teased as a silhouette in last year’s advertisement, but the iconic redesign is now ready for its Super Bowl close-up.

“Volkswagen is excited to showcase the all-new 2012 Beetle on football’s biggest stage. The Super Bowl is the perfect platform to feature the bold, dynamic, and sportiest Beetle ever made,” said Brain Massoll, Managing Partner of Volkswagen of Naples.

Volkswagen enjoyed unprecedented success after last year’s Super Bowl spots, “The Force” and “Black Beetle”. “The Force”, which featured the 2012 Passat and mini Darth Vader, quickly became a pop culture phenomenon when it debuted online before the Super Bowl. It was voted the Number One ad of the year by ADWEEK and continues to be a hit with consumers, racking up more than 45 million views on YouTube.

The overwhelming attention from the commercial piqued interest in the 2012 Passat months before it hit the market. This ensured that the car entered the market with momentum, with more sales in its first two months than the last Passat model sold in all of 2010.

“Black Beetle” teased the all-new Beetle’s muscular shape, generating strong interest for the newly redesigned car months before it hit dealerships. The 2012 Beetle is available in two forms: stylish Beetle and sporty Beetle Turbo, both available at Volkswagen of Naples located in Naples, Florida. All models offer standard technology features such as Bluetooth® and an iPod® interface, heatable front seats, and a ‘kaeferfach’ secondary glovebox.

Volkswagen of Naples shares VW Beetle nostalgia, one of the world’s toughest cars.

The Volkswagen Beetle, is one of the most recognizable car models in the United States. It’s small, cute, and curvy body and has become a symbol of the 1960s counterculture, associated forever with hippies and talking cars. Recently though, Volkswagen announced that the popular car is getting a makeover with an all-new design.

The original Volkswagen Beetle, in production from 1938 to 2003, holds the record for the most units produced from a single, unaltered platform: 21 million cars. Sometimes it’s hard to fathom its popularity. The Beetle was slow, noisy, and awful to drive and, in Canada, depressingly cold until the auxiliary cabin heater kicked in. Yet it endured for decades and won over the hearts of millions, in part for its truculent reluctance to die. When the British took over the bombed Volkswagen factory after the Second World War, they could not find a buyer for the vehicle, which English automakers judged “quite unattractive.”

Designed by Ferdinand Porsche to be as simple as possible mechanically, the air-cooled 25-hp one-litre flat-four gasoline engine incorporated a built-in oil cooler to keep the hard-working motor from overheating. The suspension design used compact torsion bars instead of leaf or coil springs, and the Beetle’s aerodynamic body was so tightly built it was nearly airtight and could float in water for at least a few minutes. Despite retaining its iconic shape and rear-engine drivetrain, the Beetle did benefit from 78,000 incremental changes over its production span. At a time when planned obsolescence was all the rage in Detroit, the unassuming Beetle showed the world how to make a good car.

Volkswagen of Naples thinks VW is going to reach its lofty goal early.

VW Group likely to become world’s largest automaker this year Volkswagen AG is on track to sell more than 8 million vehicles this year – surpassing both GM and Toyota to claim the top spot

According to a report by Bloomberg, the Wolfsburg-based Volkswagen AG is on track to become the world’s biggest-selling automaker this year. VW had planned on becoming the world’s biggest automaker by selling 10 million units a year by 2018.

A survey of sales projections conducted by Bloomberg show that VW Group sales will likely rise by 13 percent this year with a total sales volume of 8.1 million units. For GM, the average projection was an 8 percent rise to 7.55 million, while Toyota is expected to see its sale actually fall by 9 percent in 2011 with a total sales volume of 7.27 million units. Toyota production was hampered in 2011 by the tsunami disaster that struck Japan in March of this year, slowing it sales because of a lack of deliverable vehicles.

VW is seeing tremendous growth so far this year with sales in China (the world’s largest car market) rising by almost 20 percent for 2011.

Total VW Group sales (including all of its brands) have risen 16 percent so far this year (through the third quarter) to 6.2 million units.

Control (ESC) is standard, as are driver and front passenger airbags and Side Curtain Protection® airbags in front and rear. The Beetle includes Volkswagen’s advanced Intelligent Crash Response System that shuts off the fuel pump, unlocks the doors, and switches on the hazard lights if the car is involved in certain types of collision.

Only mid-size sedan that offers German engineering at an accessible price

Only Clean Diesel option in segment with manufacturer estimated best-in-class 43 mpg highway and range of nearly 800 miles

Choice of 2.0-liter four-cylinder TDI® Clean Diesel, 2.5-liter five-cylinder gas, or 3.6-liter VR6 engines

Class-leading rear seat legroom

No-charge three-year/36,000-mile scheduled Care free Maintenance® program

The all-new 2012 Volkswagen Passat has created a new, sky-high standard in the mid-size luxury sedan class.

Here is a mid-size sedan with the space and comfort of many full-size models, offering remarkable, best-in-class, stretch-out rear-seat legroom and trunk space to match.

The Passat TDI version—the only clean diesel option in the segment—delivers an estimated 43 miles per gallon on the highway with the manual transmission, with a range of almost 800 miles. That’s New York to Chicago, San Francisco to Seattle. On one tank.

And it is being built in Chattanooga, Tenn., in a plant with a strong commitment to environmental responsibility. One key measure at the plant is the use a painting process without any filler, which reduces CO2 emissions by about 20 percent.

If all that wasn’t impressive enough, the 2012 Passat comes with a starting MSRP of just $19,995 for a five-cylinder model with standard dual-zone climate control, Bluetooth® connectivity, steering wheel audio controls, and all scheduled maintenance covered under Volkswagen’s no-charge three-year/36,000-mile Carefree Maintenance program

Exterior

The Passat’s balanced proportions give it a unique, timeless and dominant styling, reflecting the new Volkswagen Design DNA developed by Walter de Silva, the Italian design chief for the Volkswagen Group, and Klaus Bischoff, the German design leader for the Volkswagen Brand.
The signature clean design, with a predominance of horizontal body elements, reinforces the Passat’s position as the sophisticated choice in the midsize segment. The bottom line: this car looks a lot more expensive than it actually is.

The key identifying feature of a strong brand is the styling of its front end. Here the Passat displays the new horizontal brand face, with the three-blade grille and headlights forming a single unit.

The Passat’s grille is sculpted in a three-dimensional shape and stands more upright and makes a more distinctive and elegant impression in its stricter geometry. Beneath the front bumper is a large, lower intake with a striking honeycomb surface and available corner-illuminating foglights housed at each end.

From the side profile, the muscular ridge in the sill area creates a lively interplay of light reflections. Powerfully sculpted wheel arches emphasize the dynamic properties of the Passat. To emphasize the aerodynamic styling of the Passat, the roof lines flow toward the back with a nearly coupe-like cut of the rear window. Three side windows create luxury-class style with a long, extended glass surface.

The rear section is also dominated by horizontal lines. The lines of the large taillights rise toward the sides, underscoring the dynamics of the elegant rear styling. Another unique feature here is the design of the two-part taillights that are integrated in the rear fender and trunk lid.

This is a generously-proportioned four-door sedan and the largest Passat ever. Nose to tail it measures 191.6 inches and features a stretched 110.4-inch wheelbase and 72.2-inch width, which allows such exceptional rear-seat space.

Interior

The 2012 Passat is unique in the Volkswagen family in that it was designed and specifically tailored for American tastes and American lifestyles.

So the cabin of the all-new Passat delivers space, and plenty of it. There’s room for five adults to really stretch out in comfort. And with four large, wide-opening doors, getting in and out is a cinch.

There’s also a true elegance and simplicity about the layout. Nothing here is trendy or over-done. The lines flow in an easy-on-the-eye style, complimented by the highest-quality materials applied with painstaking attention to detail.

The instrument panel is similar to that of Volkswagen’s flagship model, the all-new Touareg. Available chrome-trimmed gauges surround a digital multifunction display. A high-end chrome look is also applied to the air vents in the cockpit, and to the surrounds of the radio, navigation system and the climate control panels. The rotary light switch and parking brake handle button are also treated in chrome. Except for the base version, all other Passat trims have chrome interior accents on the window, mirror adjustment and trunk opening switches

The seats are exceptionally comfortable, with an emphasis on providing extra side- and under-thigh support for long-distance road trips. Even in the base version, the driver’s seat adjusts eight ways, including lumbar, while most models feature eight-way power adjustment. Inviting cloth trim is offered with the base S model, with the SE versions feature Volkswagen’s trademark perforated V-Tex leatherette, and SEL models moving up to full leather seating surfaces.

New Fender® Premium Audio

There is no shortage of entertainment system options with the 2012 Passat—but the most exciting is the brand new Fender Premium Audio System, which was designed to bring the raw emotion of a live music performance to the driving experience.

The system was developed through collaboration between Fender, the legendary music amplification experts, who also make some of the coolest guitars for the rock star elite, and Panasonic®. It cranks out 400 watts of power played through nine speakers, including a trunk-mounted subwoofer.

And the same cool, chromed Fender logo that has graced the guitar ‘amps’ of some of the world’s music legends, is featured on the A-pillar tweeters on the Passat’s Fender system.

Engines and Transmissions

The all-new Passat offers three drivetrain options: a responsive 2.5-liter gasoline engine, a remarkably fuel efficient 2.0-liter TDI Clean Diesel and a powerful 3.6-liter VR6®.

The refined, 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine features double chain-driven overhead camshafts, four valves per cylinder and maintenance-free hydraulic lifters. It makes 177-horsepower and 170 lb-ft of torque and is available with a five-speed manual gearbox as standard, or with an optional six-speed automatic.

The 2.0-liter TDI® Clean Diesel in-line four-cylinder engine produces 140 hp and 236 lb-ft of torque.

It delivers an EPA estimated fuel economy rating of 43 mpg on the highway when equipped with the six-speed manual transmission, giving a range of 795 miles on one tank of ultra-low-sulfur clean diesel. The TDI engine is equipped with a Selective Catalytic Reduction System (SCR), a clean engine that fulfills emissions requirements in all 50 states.

Optional on the Passat TDI Clean Diesel is Volkswagen’s DSG® six-speed automatic. This dual-clutch transmission is considered the most-efficient automatic in the world. It incorporates a dual-clutch system that instantly engages and disengages gears without the need for a clutch pedal. With a special computer controlling the process, one clutch is engaged on the next gear, while the clutch from the previous gear is released.

The results are crisp, quick shifts, without the loss of power that is experienced with a traditional manual gearbox. It’s the perfect choice for drivers who want the performance of a traditional manual transmission with the precision of an automatic.

The 3.6 liter VR6 makes the new Passat a top-flight sport sedan. Producing an impressive 280 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque, it offers power and luxury-class driving comfort, with European-type restraint in its fuel consumption—the EPA highway estimate is 28 mpg. Shifting on the new Passat VR6 is handled by a standard six-speed DSG.

Suspension

The 2012 Passat has been designed to feature the kind of dynamic, involved handling and precise steering drivers have come to expect of a Volkswagen. The new Passat may be a big car, but it drives small.

Its front suspension features the proven Volkswagen formula of struts with robust lower control arms, coil springs, telescopic dampers and an anti-roll bar. At the rear, there’s a sophisticated four-link independent layout with telescopic dampers and an anti-roll bar. The axle is acoustically de-coupled from the body to help reduce road noise or vibration.

The steering system comprises a power-assisted rack-and-pinion set-up, perfectly weighted to provide a balance between precision at higher speeds, and lower steering weight at parking speeds. Swinging into that tight, mall parking spot is easy, thanks to the Passat’s 36.4-foot turning radius and three turns lock-to-lock.

Safety and Security

Safety is not on the option list at Volkswagen, which is why every 2012 Passat comes with a comprehensive suite of active and passive safety features.

Safety starts with a specially-reinforced safety cage, complete with anti-intrusion side beams and forged steel roof B-pillars. Behind the sleek nose, there is a crash-optimized front-end featuring integrated impact-absorbing elements that help minimize the collision energy.

Naturally, every new 2012 Passat comes with Electronic Stability Control (ESC) that helps compensate for oversteer or understeer by applying individual corrective forces to each of the wheels. Also standard is an Anti-lock Braking System, Hydraulic Brake Assist, Tire Pressure Monitoring, and Volkswagen’s acclaimed Intelligent Crash Response System. In the event of a collision it automatically unlocks the doors, shuts off the fuel pump, and even turns on the hazard warning lights.

The six standard airbags include driver and front passenger front and side thorax airbags, together with Side Curtain Protection® airbags front and rear.

Peace of mind in owning a new Passat comes from Volkswagen’s no-charge Carefree Maintenance Program. It covers all scheduled maintenance for the length of the New Vehicle Limited Warranty, which is three years or 36,000 miles, whichever comes first.
