VW Race Touareg 3: a desert racer for the road
Volkswagen has built a road-going version of its racing Touareg. Watch out, Notting Hill
Posted: 31 Mar 2011
Look what blew in from the desert. This is VW’s Race Touareg 3 concept, based on the endurance monster that took the top three places in this year’s Dakar rally - the two-week race that’s now run across Argentina and Chile’s roughest landscapes. And as you’ve probably guessed, this isn’t some regular showroom-spec Touareg with the body of a real Dakar winner. This is a real Dakar winner, albeit a slightly cosier one, reformatted for us regular civvies.
