An overwhelmed Volkswagen India presented keys to a new brand new Phaeton model to Ms Gauri Khan, producer of RA. One and SRK's better half. A new Phaeton costs over 80 lakh rupees and competes with the likes of the BMW 7 Series, Mercedes S-Class and Jaguar XJ.
It was revealed today that King Khan drives a yellow VW Beetle in the movie and the Touareg SUV plays an important role as well.

The Volkswagen carlines are a prominent feature throughout the movie.

Recently Shahrukh and Gauri where spotted driving out of their home in Bandra in a BMW 650i. Shahrukh could not pose with the car as he is Hyundai's brand ambassador in India.
Once the buzz around RA. One settles down, Shah Rukh will start promoting his next movie Don 2 which hits the box office during Christmas.
