2004 Volkswagen Touareg W12 Sport

The Touareg - W12 is the sporty top model

Volkswagen Individual is responsible for designing, developing and marketing this superlative off-roader, which offers 331 kW / 450 hp of output and a top speed of 250 km/h (electronically limited, speedometer up to 320 km/h).
At present, the combination of a twelve-cylinder engine with pneumatic suspension and four-wheel drive is unique. The vehicle's extraordinary performance, i.e. acceleration from 0-100 km/h in 5.9 seconds, is impressive but not the focal point. Instead, it is the nature of its mobility, superior in
every regard, which recommends the limited edition Touareg W12 Sport to a highly-demanding circle of customers. The 6.0-litre twelve-cylinder engine's maximum torque of 600 Newtonmetres (at 3250 rpm) ensures that the Touareg always has seemingly inexhaustible power reserves to hand both on and off the road. The petrol engine, which complies with the EU4 standard, is shifted by means of a six-speed automatic gearbox (Tiptronic).

Vast swathes of both the exterior and interior of what is Europe's highest-powered off-roader have been re-specified by Volkswagen Individual. The show vehicle, painted in "deep blue", shows these new features in detail. Externally, they include the exclusively designed bumpers, the widened wheel housings which homogeneously meld with the side sills, darkened windows, the exhaust system's two chromed twin tailpipes and 20-inch alloy wheels with 275/40 R20 tyres, which identify this Touareg as the W12 Sport. The Touareg's exclusive interior is further refined by individual sports seats with Alcantara inlays, aluminium trim and aluminium sill strips bearing the "W12 Sport" logo.
