He was present at the official Slovenian presentation of the new Passat, explaning new VW design. He is the one responsible for new VW face design.<p>There is an anecdote about Robert: <br>He was talented and enthusiastic youngster who wanted to study industrial design here at local academy in Ljubljana, Slovenia. He failed the enterance tests several times - the proffesors thought he was not good enough. He went to Germany, studied the industrial there and now - how ironical, being not good for Slovenian design society - he became one of the most important VW designers. <p>That tells you something about Slovenian school system. His case was not sporadic - there were a lot of similar cases, where talented people are rejected by Slovenian universities and foreced to go study abroad - which in the very end turn even better option. <p> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/bonk.gif" BORDER="0">

You probably mean Murat Günak, former member of MB's design team, responsible for the SLR and Maybach..he is with VW since 2003 I believe. He still has his permanent adress 10mins away from where I live and his son plays basketball with someone I know..funny, eh?
