I think it dates back to Hitler, seriously.

Althou I guess since I'm a VW driver, in a movie I'd be a Villain.

I'm BACK & SINGLE. So lock up all the hotties!

cause the vilains are often quite rich and what do you buy when you have money? A Benz or a BMW.

Movie villains are evil, but they have to be cool. Few things are cooler than driiving a German car.

because they're faster so it helps them flee from the goodies

BTW, saw the Bourne Supremacy, no way can a Lada do what they did with it!

Traditionally (and i'm talking about the 1930s and 40s here okay) in films made by the Americans and the Brits, the baddies are always "foreigners", usually have moustaches and scars and obviously therefore drive foreign cars.

Volkswagen are particularly sinister, given their association with Hitler.
