Here is a quick tease of photos from VW Group Night on the eve of the 2014 Geneva International Motor Show. Yes, VW is the parent company of Bugatti, Lamborghini, Ducati, Bentley, Porsche, Audi, Skoda, SEAT and GIUGIARO with each presenting their latest and greatest to a mob of international auto journalists. From the new Bentley Continental GT Speed to Les Legendes de Bugatti, it was a spectacular evening to say the least.
Volkswagen made announcements regarding their intention to invest more than ever before in eco-friendly vehicles. Last year, Group research and development expenditure rose by 15 percent to the record value of €10.2 billion. “The lion’s share is going to ‘green’ technologies,” Prof. Dr. Martin Winterkorn, Chairman of the Board of Management of Volkswagen Aktiengesellschaft, explained before the opening of the Geneva Motor Show. He said that the Group was reinforcing its objective to become the world’s leading automaker, also in ecological terms, by 2018. So expect the VW GTE very soon!
