Volkswagen T3, also known as the Vanagon, is the successor of the Microbus. Unlike the Microbus, this vehicle had square corners. The Volkswagen Vanagon T3 was launched in the market in 1980 and continued to be churned out until 1991. It came at the tail end of Volkswagen models with rear-mounted engines. It had comparable length and height dimensions to the Type 2 Volkswagen, but was wider and heftier. The rear door was likewise bigger than that of the T2. In terms of suspension and other mechanical features, the T3 incorporated marked changes over the T2.

Performance of the Vanagon T3, which gained popularity in several countries like Great Britain, Canada, US, and South Africa, improved as engines of super cars were installed in it by some owners. One leading sports car maker even used the VW Type 2 Transporter as platform and accommodated the 3.2-liter engine of its marque when it needed a support vehicle for a major racing event.
