A pair of Volkswagens--both Golf and Polo--in Giugiaro-styled Italdesign concept form have emerged from the ever-leaky European patent office a week ahead of their scheduled debut in Geneva. Portrayed in unflattering gray-on-gray, they still manage to look quite good.

While the futuristic details (mid-window bars, rear-view cameras) may not make the production cut, the overall shapes and proportions are certainly feasible. We'll have the latest official word and images as soon as they're available, plus our own live coverage of the show when press days open March 1.
