#11. Volkswagen W12 Coupe – 1997
Volkswagen isn’t well known for making coupe cars. In fact, in the mid-1990s, they started to realize that themselves. VW’s CEO at the time, Ferdinand Piech personally requested development of a supercar. Italdesign team came up with an idea for a coupe that would feature a 12-cylinder W engine, positioned in the middle. In 1997, first such car was constructed. The W12 debuted at the 1997 Tokyo Motor Show. Two other concept supercars followed in 1998 and 2001, named Roadster and Nardo, respectively.
