Victorian Coroner Heather Spooner’s report into the death of 32 year-old Melbourne woman, Melissa Ryan, in 2011 was released this week.
The inquest found Ms Ryan’s Volkswagen Golf did not contribute to the collision that caused her death.
Volkswagen responded to the report, expressing its condolences to the Ryan family.
The teaser image was promptly followed by several leaked images in Japan exposing the entire car.
