Volkswagen is trying to move on from a bad 2015.
Nope - it wants to you marvel at the crazy stunt those kooky PR bods in its Norwegian branch have cooked up.
Now we've dried up our stores of cynicism, the following trick is an impressive one. In order to advertise VW's new Trailer Assist function, a team of engineers managed to squeeze an engine and driving controls into a heavily modified trailer - complete with one-way glass. From inside the trailer, a driver is able to tow a car at impressive speeds under full control - while bystanders and fellow motorists watch in understandable confusion as the trailer blitzes past them.
Well done, VW. It's not like you to cheat on car performance...
