1994 Rolling Stones/Bon Jovi/Pink Floyd VW Golf
Volkswagen sponsored three rock bands' European tours, issuing a special-edition Golf for each. And, to accurately capture the hazy, hedonistic world of a touring musician, fitted each with a sticker, some mildly upgraded speakers, alloys, and special seat fabric. No power upgrades were offered. Presumably to avoid over-dazzling customers with the potent extras already on offer. Apologies for the image - a YouTube advert for the Rolling Stones model seems to be the only evidence they existed. Funny that.
