The new edition of VW Touareg for 2011 has become much more sporty than before, but if that’s not enough for you then check out JE Design makeover package for the car. It can’t get much sportier than this! The body is styled with new sports radiator grill, front spoiler, front and back wheel arch kit, rear apron insert, roof spoiler and rear hatch blend, and different muffler tips round or trapezium shaped. The whole kit costs 4998 Euro.
Then there’s the engine, where JE Desing has tweaked the Touareg’s 4.2-liter TDI-engine with optimised engine management, so the power has gone up from 340 hp (250 kW) to 410 hp (302 kW). The torque is also increased 800 to 930 Newton metres. Therefore the acceleration of this more than two ton vehicle from 0-100 kph only takes 5.4 instead of 5.8 seconds and the top speed now no longer ends at 242 but at 269 kph instead. The engine kit is priced at 2999 Euro.
Another 1428 Euro will buy you the pneumatic electronic suspension lowering module that lowers the car by 35 mm. This feature make the 22-inch aluminium wheels to look even better inside the fenders. The wheels are available in four different finishes: shadow silver with a polished front surface, matte black with a matte silver front surface, graphite shiny silver with polished rim and matte graphite silver with polished rim. The wheel package which can also be ordered with custom paint costs 5190 Euro; single wheels are available for 690 Euro each.
If you want to order the completer upgrade package for 2011 Touareg including assembly, paint and TÜV- registration then set aside 19,750 Euro.
