Romantics choose VW Camper Van over other cars for getaway

14 February 2019 Press Release Blog

The VW Camper Van has been voted the favourite car for a romantic getaway in a new survey by Motorpoint.

We asked drivers on social media to identify their favourite car to use for a romantic getaway in the run-up to Valentine’s Day.

The iconic VW Camper Van, which went on to sell over five million in its original design after it was launched at the Geneva Motor Show in 1949, drove away with the votes. It accelerated past equally classic cars such as the Aston Martin DB4, immortalised by James Bond in ‘Goldfinger’, Ford Mustang and the VW Beetle. The Ferrari 275 GTB was another popular choice among motorists together with the Morgan Plus 8 and the Lotus Elan.
