Driving is a respite for Maffay. "I can think about things and chill out." Behind the wheel, or in the passenger’s seat? "I’m always a man who likes to take the wheel. I’m a bad passenger, often complaining. And I’m not a speedster," is how musician Maffay characterizes driver Maffay.
It’s clear he’s looking forward to the rides in his Indium Gray Golf R. "At Volkswagen, for years I’ve seen a workforce that passionately builds good cars," says Maffay, praising the quality of the Golf, Tiguan, Passat, and others. "And I see a company whose social commitment is extremely high. Unfortunately, both of those sometimes fade into the background." Next door, when a Passat is handed over to a customer, there’s whispering. "Look, it’s Peter Maffay!"
