A car from around the 1980s, and the world’s longest-running auto-parts forum.
The car is the car of the year, according to car aficionados.
But it’s also the world record holder for the longest-lasting automobile: A 1978 Volkswagen Polo.
According to a Guinness World Records report from 2016, the Polo, with a length of just 2.6 feet, was built in the same year as the VW Golf, the oldest automobile in existence, by a team led by Volkswagen engineer Ferdinand Porsche.
The Polo was originally designed for a German racing team and was used by Porsche’s then-CEO, Dieter Zetsche, in Formula 1 from 1982 to 1985.
The Polo’s first passenger was a 13-year-old boy named Felix Bickel, who would eventually become a Formula One world champion.
The world’s fastest-selling car, according the Guinness World records, is the Audi R8 Q7, which debuted in 2018.
The Q7 had a top speed of 252 mph, which is twice the speed of the fastest car in the world, the Audi S6, which was sold in 2015.
The R8 was also sold in the United States for $1,450,000.
The Audi S8 was a mid-size luxury sedan that debuted in 2020.
