XCAR: Volkswagen Doubleback: The Swiss Army Knife of Cars

5:55 /

The Volkswagen Transporter is a pretty versatile vehicle, the Double back however proves that it had more to give. This is as close to a real Transfomer as cars can get.

-Oh, Tim. -We have scored your tent. -It's just like James Bond, isn't it? -It's a Transporter in disguise, man. -That's incredible. -Wow. -The legs. -It's interesting, ain't it? -Let's see what's inside? -Oh my God. -Wow. -Look at that. -That is completely hipped out, isn't it? -About the, it's the most innovative design since the Pop Top from Volkswagen aint it? We got some innovative stuff for you. -Oh, Tim, I'm so excited. -That, honestly the plan was to hit the road. Gower. -Gower. -Surfing. Let's do it. Sun shining. Let's go. -Rolling, rolling, rolling. Keep those wagons rolling. Double Back. -You got a deep voice, ain't you? -Rolling, rolling, rolling. Keep those wagons rolling. We're going in the Double Back. -It's not gonna be bad that I thought it's gonna be. -Oh, I'm so happy with that. -That's all right, guys. -You can count on your surf board. -I enjoyed watching you-- -What's that? What's next on the agenda then? -If you're having fun I'm having fun. -What should we do next? -Go for a skate? -One thing I would've thought with the Double Back, you know, it's a lot more metal in the van, isn't it? You think that obviously there'll be a lot more weight. -How does it drive? -Oh, no. You can't feel it. -Without noticing it. -There's no difference. -I have thought something out of that, Tim. -What? -I'm gonna call it another phrase. I think it could well be the Swiss Army knife of vans. -Wow. -You like that? -If Swiss Army Knife were to make a van it would be the Double Back for all your camping needs. -She's good. -She's real hot. -The day is getting better, Tom. -Yes. -Yes, she has a van as well. -She did have a van. You know I think she was so impressed that maybe she might Double Back and-- -I think she might Double Back come around. -It couldn't be. You're right there. That guy he's so big. -A lot of weaving and everything. -But the best surfing treatment ever seen. -Fancy a skate, Tim? -Hang on. -The skate was fun. -I have not been on a skateboard in years. I felt like I was 14 again and sometimes though. -I do. Definitely reliving my childhood. -Yes. You could definitely tell you're up in a skateboard a lot. -No. No. -I'm having a good time. -And we are. -I'm having fun. -First we go mountain. -Mountains, I'm thinking, mate. [unk]. -Yes. -Just lot the mountains, yes. We can go back in up there. -Well, if you cycle anything like you drive, you got nothing to worry about. -You know what I'm saying about the Swiss Army knife of vans. Well, here's the knife. You like it? -You are full of surprises, mate? -I am here with honest-- -You're a magician. -Oh, what a view, Tim. That is a fantastic view. That's why we do it. -A sportsman in you. -Oh yes. -What a day? -Good day, mate. -Perfect day, mate. Action packed. -What if I can fill all your surfboards in the back? -Yes. -And we clear this area. No clutter in it. -Yes. -Just like that. -Yes. You know as we thought about it, it's really easy just to you know you got the buttons there to extend it. It's not complicated. -The back's open, the legs are down. -Yes. It's just all really easy. -Because it is how it is. You want to go exploring with it. -You can do everything. -And having fun. -This is what it's about. -I can stand up. -Surf trip with style. -I need one of these. -You need it. -I have to have one of these. -It got a bed here as well. -Just gets better and better. -I've got a space to spend the night with you now. -Oh. -Why do you say it's such a bad thing? -No. It's fine mate. We've had a great day. I'm happy to spend the night with you. -Oh, thank you. Tim. That's lovely. -Next really, Tim. Actually we got 2 beds, don't we? Nothing to worry about that.
