The Qatar Motor Show doesn’t exactly have many followers in the auto world, at least compared to some of the much bigger shows opening their doors in January, but this year’s show actually featured a lot of cool cars worthy of some attention. One of those models is the Volkswagen Touareg Gold Edition, which as you may have guessed, carries with it a 24-carat gold upgrade for many of its components.
The Touareg Gold Edition study is painted in "Magic Morning" white combined with splashes of gold found in the 22" wheels, roof rails, protective guard strips, and window frames. Other elements given the golden touch are the mirror caps, parts of the air intake frame, the "Touareg V8" signature, and boot sill trim.
The interior of the Volkswagen also combines a "Luna" trim color with differed 24-carat gold insertions. The seats are covered in Nappa leather and the roof liner in Alcantara, while the dashboard is trimmed in a natural brown leather with contrasting seams in a "Magnolia" color. Natural brown with leather inserts in "Luna" adorn the floor mats. Automotive craftsmanship at its finest is reflected in the Walnut Burr accents with genuine gold marquetry – also crafted into an ornamental pattern.
