Does anyone knows where can I find it? Seems weird that it’s never been made?
This font is in the Public Domain right, and used quite a lot too! (Not only by VW)
Not too sure about the public domain thing... I think it is an officially retailed font, as is is sold by Adobe in their font folio. I would check that first. There probably are several rounded fonts that do provide italic as well.
TS Volkswagen has italics in it.
You can try BPreplay as well (check the typefaces section)

Renko, your mention of Volkswagen made me look up VAG Rounded on Google... Until now, I had no idea that VW was the origin of this typeface, and I'd always wondered what "VAG" stood for!
Until now, I had always identified Futura with Volkswagen, because of Helmut Krone's famous ads for VW in the United States.
As far as I know VW put the font in the public Domain so all the dealers could use it?
Thanks for the link Renko. That’s verry usefull …
Do you see the wierd cutofs in the lowercase a and q in the heavy-italic.
Gives me the feeling it’s a quick rip-off …
Not sure if this is all true …
I’m sure the first lines are bullshit!
I could not find any information for "The Quick Brown Fox" foundry, not even on MyFonts!
