The VW Passat was the star of the show. And we were the paparazzi.
If you don’t have press credentials or a family member on the Board of Directors at Volkswagen, then you probably weren’t at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit for the spectacular unveiling of the all-new 2012 Passat. But fear not, with the help of Danielle Gumro, VW product specialist, and the marvels of modern day photography, you can get a firsthand look at the show-stopping drama, theatrics, and media frenzy that surrounded this historic reveal. Check out the gallery of pictures that put you in the front row of this closed-door event.
