Volkswagen’s Golf and Beetle take “Legends on Wheels” titles

Giant motoring journal, Automotive News Europe, asked visitors to its website to vote for their most significant vehicles – decade by decade – from the 1880s to the present day, to find, what it calls, the “Legends on Wheels”.

Almost 100,000 people took part, and the results saw Volkswagen enjoy a double win, with the early Beetle winning the “1940-1949” category, and its younger sibling, the first-generation Golf scooping the “1970-1979” title.

It was a pretty good result for German automobiles in general, with the Audi TT winning the 1990s category, while Porsche’s 356 and 911, and the Audi quattro all secured second place in their groups (40s, 60s and 80s).
