It’s a blast from the past down in Somerset, Kentucky! For 12 years, the Lake Cumberland Volkswagen Jamboree has driven though the town during the monthly Somernites Cruise; the largest classic car show in the state. Our very own Gabe Balázs attended this year as Don Jacobs has proudly served as a sponsor of the Jamboree for the past 10 years.
Beetles from the 50s, 60s, and 70s, classic Busses, and early generational models of Volkswagen take us back in time to relive the innovative and fun design that has been the signature of the brand. And the appeal is wide! Attendees this year came from all over; Lexington, Louisville, Indiana, Tennessee, and Ohio. They were particularly nostalgic this year, as it’s the LAST year for the Volkswagen Beetle.
As we embark on our upcoming 50th year of being a proud dealership in Central Kentucky, we love looking back to see how far we, along with our Volkswagen brand, have come. Don’t miss your chance at catching the soon to be retired Beetle and to become part of our family – come see us today!
Who would have ever thought the day would come where self driving cars were a reality? Well that day is here and no one is doing it better than Volkswagen. Four electric concept cars have been introduced and they are unlike anything made before. Although, the most highly anticipated of the four concept cars is the ID. Buzz. Volkswagen is putting a spin on the classic VW bus and bringing it back as an electric model.
When production of the beloved bus came to an end back in 2013 consumers were sad to see such an iconic vehicle disappear. But the resurgence of this vehicle in electric form has VW bus enthusiasts thrilled. Production will begin for the ID. Buzz in 2022 in the United States, China, and Europe.
The electric bus has flawless, innovative features that have received countless awards since it was revealed at the Detroit Auto Show in 2017. The bus has a very sleek design and comfortable interior. The seats slide on the floor and fully reverse to make the ID. Buzz as comfortable as ever for easy travel. As well, the center console is a tablet that can be shifted to the front or back of the bus and removed for your convenience. The new and improved electric bus is sure to change the way we drive with 360hp from electric motors on each axle. Don’t worry about the long trips, it can handle that with a 300 mile range from the 111 kWh battery pack.
For such a technologically advanced vehicle, one might think that the ID. Buzz would be unattainable, but Volkswagen has announced that it will be more affordable than other electric cars currently on the market. The bus is back and better than ever!

Sleek. Front to Back.
The 2019 Volkswagen Arteon is here with it’s all new, yet timeless design. A successor to the Volkswagen CC, the Arteon straddles the line of luxury and affordability, all while packing a punch in performance. With a classic fastback design, the roofline slopes downward and merges seamlessly with the back, conveying style and performance. It’s a piece of modern art that you can really feel.
Turn the sleek lines into wavy ones.
The look may be classic, but it’s far from the only story. The Arteon hosts performance features that help make it as much fun to drive as it is to stare at. The standard 2.0L TSI turbocharged engine kicks out plenty of power. 4Motion all-wheel drive distributes power between the front and rear wheels as needed to help optimize traction and stability. The variable-ratio steering system provides a quick response to driver input at higher speeds. Now the only variable you have to think about is which route you want to take home. The XDS® Cross Differential System uses the breaks to help maintain power to the outside wheel when you to and to improve corning. And then, of course, covered by America’s best Bumper-to-Bumper Limited Warranty.
There’s a lot to stare at inside too.
The 2019 Arteon sports top of the line features and a spacious interior. Ambient lighting, heated seats, a beautiful heads-up display, and collapsible seating to make it bigger on the inside. Not to mention the benefit of a wide view backup camera lens in addition to the array of sensors so you can better view your surroundings. Your safety is first in mind with Adaptive Cruise Control, blind spot monitoring, lane assist, parking assist, and 7 stability-enhancing systems.
