As Volkswagen AG Chairman Bernd Pischetrieder tells it, an interesting thing happened at the star-studded Jetta introduction party at Warner Bros. Studios in Hollywood.

Fifteen-year-old rap star Clio jumped on top of the all-new Jetta on display and demanded to get his own version of the car for his sweet 16 birthday this month. Problem is the vehicle does not arrive on U.S. shores until March.

“It was definitely the highlight of the event at midnight,” Pischetrieder says. “I left Len (Hunt, vice president of Volkswagen of America, Inc.) with this problem.”

No word on whether Clio will get the car before consumers.
