It seems Volkswagen is set to refresh its aging Phaeton flagship one more time before the all-new model makes its debut at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show.
The prototype in these photos is set to be unveiled at this year’s Frankfurt Show boasting mostly subtle cosmetic modifications.
The extent of the updated design should see changes to the front bumper, grille and headlight-units and might also include slightly re-designed tail lamps.
Sources have speculated that a V10 or V12 TDI may find its way into the range to complement the existing 6.0-litre W12 petrol engine found in the current flagship Phaeton.
