Volkswagen moved into the top car class with the premium class Phaeton, produced in the new "Glaserne Manufaktur" (Transparent Factory) in Dresden, where customers are given the opportunity to watch their car being built. A 6 or 12 cylinder petrol engine was available from launch with a 10 cylinder diesel in 2003. The car has many distinctive features including a draftless 4-zone climate system - one of the most advanced in the world, and air-compressor suspension.
