The Volkswagen Golf has historically been the German carmaker's best selling model, but not its best selling product. That title goes to the VW sausage. VW has been producing sausages at its car plant in Wolfsburg, Germany, for nearly 50 years. The traditional wurst is such an important part of the company culture and history that it even has its own car part code, 199 398 500 A. Sausages were originally supplied exclusively to company cafeterias. Over time, however, Volkswagen started selling its sausages at stadiums and in shops and people loved them.
