Volkswagen unveiled its new convertible coup-ay, the Eos, to a near insatiable crowd of sharp-elbowed auto reporters. The retractable hardtop is pretty slick, with more angles than the pattern on Charlie Brown's shirt. The glass/sliding/tilting roof, the company says, lets in light, air and good humour (honest to god). The single-version Eos â€" which will get a range of engines, including a TDI diesel, on up to a 250hp V6 â€" will launch in Europe in spring 2006, with “the other continents” coming later the same year.
