Volkswagen prepares Touareg R

Volkswagen announced that they want to make an R version for their SUV, VW Touareg. After Golf R32 and Passat R36 it’s Touareg’s time to become a sports car. VW Touareg R could be named R50 and it will have for sure the same characteristic design elements of Golf R32 and Passat R36. The confirmed information presents the car with an V10 diesel engine of 4.9 litres and not one on gasoline, but the R-Touareg could have an W12 engine capable of 450HP. That would not be a smart move because it will be a serious competitor for Audi Q7 V12 TDI.
