With the launch of the Volkswagen T4 Transporter series in August 1990, the era of rear-wheel drive and rearengined VW Transporters finally came to an end. While in the predecessor T1, T2 and T3 series the engine was housed in the rear of the vehicle, the completely redesigned VW T4 now featured a transverse front engine that drove the front wheels. In particular, this had the considerable advantage that the VW Transporter, like most of its competitors, now also had a lower-lying, continuous load area. This continuous load area was an extremely important sales argument and was quickly reflected in the sales success of the T4. In addition to the purely commercial version of the Transporter which was mainly used by business customers and public agencies, the Multivan and Camping versions were particularly popular with private individuals. Thanks to a very practical and well thought-out interior, these vehicles offered a considerable degree of comfort on long journeys, were ideal for recreational trips and, thanks to the redesigned chassis and compact exterior dimensions, provided car-like ride comfort. Schuco is going to produce in a limited edition of 1.000 pieces a miniature model of this VW T4b Westfalia Camper to a scale of 1:18. Just like the other models of the Schuco Edition 1:18, the VW T4 comes with many lovingly crafted details, such as opening and closing doors, a front opening hood and the opening bonnet under which the highly detailed replica of the engine is accommodated.
