Iconic Volkswagen Type 2 honoured in film

aeeb0d33-8880-449e-bed1-917c83867e6a

The last Volkswagen T2 rolled off the production line in São Bernardo do Campo, Brazil in December 2013 to be converted in the UK by Danbury Motorcaravans.

To commemorate the passing of possibly the most iconic vehicle of all time, Volkswagen has commisioned a short film honouring the T2 and its inventor.

The video also looks at the stories of some of the people who have made it famous - as well as the 'will' of an anthropomorphised T2, giving away significant items to owners, from Frank and Iris who took their camper to 25 countries, to Nene, who took his to three FIFA World Cup's.

To end it all, the T2 takes a trip to 'her' brother, former F1 driver Ben Pon Jr. - the son of the original T2 designer Ben Pon Sr. 

If you're a VW enthusiast, we challenge you to watch the video without a little tear in your eye.
