Volkswagen is a German automotive manufacturer that was founded in 1937 and is headquartered in Wolfsburg. It is the flagship brand of the Volkswagen Group, and stands as the largest automotive maker in the world. The company sells its vehicles worldwide and is responsible for popular models like the Golf, Jetta, Beetle, Passat and Transporter. Volkswagen expanded their production line in the 1960s by adding four new Type 3 models, which included the Karmann Ghia.
Volkswagen is also involved in motorsport; it started with Formula V in 1963, which consisted of cars built from easily available Beetle parts. Volkswagen also got involved in rallying and achieved great success throughout the years – including a dominant stint in the World Rally Championship.
