Hofele Design can’t stop working on Volkswagen Touareg and came up with yet another package for it.
The latest kit based on the latest Touareg is called the Royal GT 470. Now that’s the most irrelevant name because VW means people’s car and it’s in no way royalty, and the Touareg is a full-size SUV not a GT!
Apart from the stupid name the rest of the car is alright. The front-end is dominated by a new grille and some add-on bits for the bumper with fog lamps in them! Hofele keeps boasting the extended wheel arches and thinks they give the car a more a more significant presence. Well, sort of. At the back the new apron offers a sporty diffuser and four-new tailpipes.Complementing the body kit is the new set of designer wheels available in size 20 to 22 inch.
The interior treatment is really nice and includes Hofele’s Bi-color Star-Light leather upholstery. You will also find that on door panels and armrests.
Hofele also fits the car with an electric suspension module that lowers it by 40mm. When you go past 80km/h the car’s standard height is restored to provide comfort. They have also tweaked the 3.0 TDI CR from 240 PS to 275 PS and the torque from 500 Nm to 580 Nm. It can now provide 229 km/h top speed and 0-100 km/h acceleration in 6.9 seconds.
