Volkswagen Race Touareg 3 Qatar


The second world exclusive model presented by VW at the Qatar Motor Show today is the Race Touareg 3 Qatar, which is a street legal version of the Dakar Rally racer.

Just like the Dakar wining model, the Volkswagen Race Touareg 3 Qatar packs 310 PS (228 kW) and is able to accelerate from 0 to 100 Km/h in less than 6.0 seconds with AWD. The street legal version comes with a modified body, and exterior paint in "Magic Morning," a white that has a slight gold shimmer to it, golden 18 inch BBS alloys instead of 16 inch, and side logos also featuring a golden color.

The interior has been completely redesigned, retaining the roll cage from the race model, but with the rest of controls being more ergonomic and easier to use. The cabin also makes use of black and grey Nubuk leather for the seat side supports and door trims, while the center seat panels are made from perforated black Nappa leather.

This is a genuine Rally motorsport vehicle, and could very well be the world’s most talented street-legal SUV. No further details regarding if the Volkswagen Race Touareg 3 Qatar concept will be available for sale.
