The 2016 Geneva Motor Show is going on this week with OE manufactures showing of their latest vehicles, concepts, and technologies. During a press conference led by VW passenger car chief Juergen Stackmann for the new Volkswagen Up! compact car, a man from the crowd dressed as a VW mechanic burst on to stage carrying a “cheat box” prop that he placed under the car.

The exchange between the protester and Stackmann was quite entertaining. The protestor proclaimed, “I have a new cheat box. No one is going to find out about this one!” Stackmann quipped back “OK, it doesn’t need repair. It’s a perfect car.” The protestor was able to get in one last jab before being escorted off-stage saying “No, Mr. Müller [Volkswagen CEO] said it was OK as long as no one finds out!”

The diesel scandal has been a thorn in VW’s side since the news broke last year, and the heat hasn’t let off. Most recently, a U.S. Federal judge has given VW a March deadline to fix the diesel emission issue.
