Haste makes waste.

The safety of 55+ generation is the focus of the talk with Klaus Seiffert from Verkehrswacht Wolfsburg on 20 March 2019 at 5.30 Uhr pm.

The question often arises as to how safe motorists of the 55+ generation are on the roads. Does their reaction time decline? What about their eyesight? Klaus Seiffert’s talks focus on raising awareness of natural \age-related deficits and providing tips on how to handle them as a motorist. We look forward to welcoming plenty of interested listeners on Wednesday 20 March 2019 at 5:\30 pm in the AutoMuseum Volkswagen Entrance is free.

Desert winds from Osnabrück.

The large special exhibition of the Scirocco & the Corrado from 28 February to 18 August 2019.

The major exhibition “Desert Winds from Osnabrück, Scirocco & Corrado” is open from 28 February to 18 August 2019. It charts the history of the first sporty coupé and its successors with production models, and in particular rare models including convertible conversions, station wagons, and high-performance models.

Sciwago. Astonishment and head-shaking: only a dozen lifestyle station wagons based on the Scirocco I were created at Artz in Hanover around 1976. The exhibition model has been boosted to 100 PS.

No production model – the Scirocco Cabriolet: while Volkswagen rejected an open-top version, Bieber, the renowned “embellishment” company, got its hands on this Scirocco.

Scirocco II conversion VR6 Syncro. Absolute one-off: a second series Scirocco on the underbody of a Golf VR6 Syncro. The ultimate in technology transfer. The exterior remained surprisingly subtle.

Scirocco II Bimotor. Wide, fast, loud: a total of two Bimotor Roccos were built, one by Volkswagen Motorsport, the other (photo) by Technical Development. Both are on display in the AutoMuseum!

Corrado Magnum. Even rarer than the Sciwago: one of the two very professionally manufactured Shooting Brake prototypes is in the museum for the first time – the hoped-for series production did not materialise.

Scirocco III AirMotion. Optimised driving dynamics, improved safety and reduced fuel consumption: Volkswagen tested Active Aerodynamics on a Scirocco III with spoilers deployed in certain situations.

It won't last more Green.

From 24 January to 28 April 2019 Ampelmännchen and other light images present themselves.

Since the invention of pedestrian traffic lights, a wide range of figures and symbols have been designed in many countries. Some 80 international traffic light figures and other light images from the collection of Bielefeld’s Frank Föste can be seen in the AutoMuseum Volkswagen from 24 January to 28 April 2019. They are on show as part of the MobilArt series in conjunction with the civic museum in Gütersloh. Many of the lights are in working order and cast some light on the exhibition.
