VW's ulitmate 250km/h 4x4

2004-09-27 11:16

The VW Touareg W12 Sport, designed by Volkswagen Individual, is initially available as a limited edition only.

This 331 kW 4x4 is able to reahc 300km/h but it is electronically limited to 250 km/h. It sprints from 0-100km in 5.9 seconds.

The car's 6-litre produces maximum torque of 600 Nm and it comes with a six-speed automatic gearbox.

Both the exterior and the interior has been re-specified by Volkswagen Individual in many areas. The "deep blue" painted exhibition vehicle shows the new features in detail.

Outside, it is the exclusively designed bumpers, darkened windows, wheel arch extensions which blend smoothly with the side sills, two chromium-plated double exhaust-pipe ends and 20-inch alloy wheels with tyre dimensions 275/40 R20 that make this Touareg stand out as the W12 Sport.

The smart interior of the Touareg is further refined by the addition of individual sports seats with Alcantara inlays (very non-slip), aluminium inserts (design: Engine Spin) and aluminium door entry strips incorporating the "W12 Sport" lettering.
