21. Volkswagen Phaeton
This car was one of the most expensive flops in recent years and a clear case of misjudgment from Volkswagen. They built a luxury sedan as a company that specializes in economy models. And they used a Bentley Continental platform, big engines, and upscale features.
But the market wasn’t ready for a brand that gained fame with affordable models to introduce a luxurious land barge. So unfortunately the Phaeton failed worldwide despite being a fantastic car. Even though it is affordable on the used car market, people just don’t want to buy it.
