Talk about a delayed reaction! Its true, Volkswagen has just unveiled the new generation Touareg, but the German tuner CoverEFX has just now prepared a new tuning package for the old versions. Either they really love the old version or they are not quick on the draw. Called the W12 Sport Edition, their tuning package will be limited to only 500 units and will be priced at €140,500 (car included).
The W12 Touareg is covered in CFC film in "gun-metal mat/black gloss" while all the other hang-on parts, like air inlets, front grille, and mirrors, as well as chrome molding, are also lacquered in black. The car sits on 22" RS-L light alloy rims from Kahn with black powder coating and red pinstripes to further demonstrate the car’s new sporty look.
Also, thanks to a software optimization system, which includes removal of the speed limiter, a sports air filter, and a high-grade steel Cargraphic exhaust silencer, the engine has been tuned to deliver an impressive 500 hp. The body has been electronically lowered to maintain stability for the power upgrade.
Press release after the jump.
It was not too long ago when the white colour dominated on the automobile scene. The age of business-like chilly "external decoration" is now obviously over. Today, thanks to the complete vehicle lamination with all possible colour variations, we can go back to whiteness with minimal expenses. CoverEFX from the city of Erftstadt specializes at all kinds of car lamination and has already made a name for itself on the auto scene. No Touareg has been on display in so elegant/sports style before, the W12 Sport Edition doesn’t have to conceal itself neither from the exterior, nor under the motor hood.
The complete vehicle lamination with CFC film in "gun-metal mat/black gloss" colour emphasizes the sportish appearance and protects the original lacquer coating. All the other hang-on parts, like air inlets, front grille and mirrors, as well as chrome molding, are also lacquered in black - and glazed tail lights finalize the general impression.
The room climate is optimized - and the „anthracite-style" glass tinting on all windows of the vehicle is a perfect match to this. Sunscreening film contributes to the general sense of well-being, and the living is just better in a room with comfortably adjusted temperature.
If we look under the motor hood, we will see that Touareg is not just the driver’s limousine. This Touareg can be proud of its drive gear: the W12 edition by CoverEFX, which is, by the way, limited to 500 exemplars, belongs to the most powerful motors offered by VW. With its software optimization system, which includes removal of the speed limiter, a sports air filter and a high-grade steel Cargraphic exhaust silencer, CoverEFX squeezes the impressive 500 hp out of the high-powered Touareg.
Electronic equipment makes the chassis even more sportish, and yet comfortable at the same time. The body lowering has been optimized electronically at the chassis level. So now where other powerful vehicles lose their stability, the W12 Sport Edition easily maintains its steadiness on the road.
Finally, huge 22-inch Kahn RS-L light alloy rims, as big as 10x22 inches, with high-performance 295/30-22 Pirelli Zero Scorpion tyres are brought into action with Touareg. The light alloy rims got additional black powder coating and were further refined with red pinstripes.
The price of the new car, including tuning, amounts to 140,500 Euro.
