Volkswagen proved that Germans do in fact have a sense of humor when they came out with the Phaeton. They built a car that's arguably far superior to the top of the line Audi A8 and costs roughly $100,000. It also has a VW badge on it. They were only sold in the United States from 2004 to 2006 and are quite rare on this side of the Atlantic.
I was rather surprised to find this example parked (poorly) in the parking lot in front of Penn State's North residence halls. I was even more surprised when I realized that it was obviously a grey-market car too. On close inspection, you will notice the front and rear bumpers have provisions for European sized plates. It also has reflective tape on the bumper - perhaps to comply with US regulations. Inside the car still sports a speedometer that displays kilometers per hour. There is likely an interesting story behind how this car ended up here, yet alas, we may never know.
