We are here at the Geneva Auto Show where Volkswagen has unveiled one of their concepts tonight at a private event – the Bulli Concept. In Germany, Bulli is the common nickname for the original Microbus and as you can see, this concept was obviously built in the same spirit. With two-tone paint, upright styling and loads of other retro touches, VW set out to create something with a nod to the past, but with the latest in technology and economy.
