Lightbulb The Volkswagen Student

Never heard of the VW Student? That's because was it was never for sale. It was one of Volkswagen's many concept cars.



The Student, shown at European auto shows in 1984, was a VW design exercise to create a microcar to sell in places like Amsterdam and Luxembourg City, where streets are about as narrow as an office building corridor. Meant to be smaller than the Polo, it nonetheless rode on Polo mechanicals and was powered by a Polo 1.1-liter engine. Though never produced, the Student was an important step in VW's microcar project.
