The 50 Best Cars of the Complex Decade

33. Volkswagen Phaeton

Year: 2002
What it is: 
A Bentley for Audi prices with a VeeDub badge
Complex Says:
 The Phaeton is one of the most sadly under-appreciated vehicles in the country. Americans simply weren't capable of reconciling the $90,000 price tag with the VW badge, despite the fact that the car was basically just a mash up of a Bentley Continental and an Audi A8. It was an absolute steal for anyone more concerned with content than showing off.
