26 March to 31 October 2021: The new special exhibition.

4 wins. All-wheel drive expertise from Volkswagen.

Starting with the construction of an all-wheel-drive prototype of the second-generation Transporter, the series-production entry followed with Iltis, T3 and Passat syncro . The new special show "4 wins. All-wheel drive competence from Volkswagen. will be on show from 26 March to 31 October 2021, highlighting the historical development of the brand's standard systems and at the same time taking a look into the future. The technical details and refinements are vividly explained on 18 selected vehicle exhibits paired with the associated power unit strands: switchable all-wheel drive, quattro, syncro, Torsen and Haldex as well as electric drive as in the BUDDe study.

LT 40 Doka "Rally du Tunesie": In 1987, four-wheel drive was introduced in the LT. This meant that it could comfortably take part in "desert road trips" such as the Rally du Tunesie. The manual gearbox was followed by a transfer gearbox with a reduction ratio. The front wheels can be engaged. The gradient capability is up to 100 percent.

Passat B2 Electronic: Equipped with quattro all-wheel drive, a 200 hp turbo petrol engine and lots of infotainment (including a navigation system), this Passat test vehicle appeared two years before Volkswagen introduced the Passat syncro with the same 4x4 technology. Here, "syncro" was to be understood as a generic designation.

Lupo Sport: The sporty five-valve engine with turbocharging has a rear axle with independent suspension from the Golf syncro and a track width of 1483 millimetres. The underbody was modified (cardan shaft). Parts of the front end come from the Lupo GTI, the spoiler from the Polo Cup.

Wheel hub Lupo: The research vehicle has a compact electric motor on the inside of each of the 16-inch rims. The advantage of the system is that it saves space, but it limits ride comfort due to higher spring masses. The all-wheel drive is permanent; a slip-sensitive engagement at the front or rear was not yet technically possible in 2006.

BUDDe: The first study for the Modular Electrification Toolkit (MEB) was created in 2016. Both axles (steerable rear axle) are driven by separate e-motors with lithium-ion batteries installed flat between them. The BUDDe, equipped with spectacular show technology, is the forerunner of the planned series model ID.BUZZ.

50 Years of Love and Peace.

The Volkswagen Artwork of Klaus Trommer from 5 September 2020 to 31 October 2021.

More than 50 years ago, Woodstock heralded the era of Love & Peace and the Flower Children. Inseparably linked to this new attitude to life are the automotive classics from Volkswagen. Beetles and Bulli turned the event into the "Loveliest Bus-Stop on Earth".

A declaration of love for the 70s, the decade of flower power, cheerful colours and opulent forms. The graphics shown were created in the course of the production of motifs for the Volkswagen lifestyle and licence team of Volkwagen Zubehör GmbH.
