In 1994 Pink Floyd signed a sponsorship with Volkswagen and made them a major sponsor of the 1994 Pink Floyd European tour, in the amount of 20 Million DM (8.5 million UK pounds or $13.75 million US).In return, Pink Floyd agreed to do advertising for Volkswagen in Europe. Volkswagen then produced a limited edition ‘Volkswagen Pink Floyd ‘ car. The band was consulted about the outfitting of the car, which featured special paint, decals, and interior appointments and was released as a Golf model, and a Cabrolet model. David Gilmour later felt bad about the sponsorship decision and donated the sponsorship money to charity.
