Volkswagen T25 / T3 Autohomes Komet (Mark 2) Camper Model History

VW T3 Autohomes Komet Mk2

Circa 1988 Autohomes introduced the latest version of the T25 / T3 Volkswagen Autohomes Komet. This was an updated and improved version of the Autohomes Komet (Mark 1) and was officially called the Autohomes Komet Mark 2 although generally it was just called the Authomes Komet. As with the Mark 1 version this was a 4 berth model with high top roof. The interior had cupboards along the side behind the drivers seat and the rear seat converted into a 3/4 width double bed with another double bed in the hightop roof. The improvements over the Autohomes Komet (Mark 1) included the following VW model updates such as rectangular headlights, front and rear moulded bumpers, front spoiler, full wheel covers, rear wash wipe, heated rear window, padded steering wheel, dipping rear view mirror, illuminated vanity mirror, intermittent front windscreen wipers, drivers door pocket, cigar lighter and clock. To complement the VW model changes Autohomes added new exterior graphics, new soft furnishings, new style furniture with heat resistant surfaces and a dash top storage console. Note: As the new model was phased in a few versions were made with the older round headlamp VW base model but the new Autohomes graphics and furnishings.

This version of the Autohomes Komet was fitted with VW water cooled engines.
