The tuning shop Hofele Design has revealed a special edition of Volkswagen’s full size SUV called the Touareg Dakar.20.10. Named after the infamous Dakar Rally, a 31 year old transcontinental off road race being run across the Pampas of Argentine, across the Atacama Desert and over the Andes Mountains pushing both man and machine to their ultimate limits of concentration and endurance. Simply put, the Dakar makes Baja look like they are playing in a sandbox.

It just so happens that the people’s car maker is heavily invested in the Dakar with their own series of race prepped Touaregs. Something that this special edition "Dakar 20.10" body kit from Hofele Design hopes to imitate with items like its "Range-Look" front grill, stainless steel skid plate to protect the under body, stainless steel side steps as well as the appropriate "Dakar.20.10" and "Hofele" graphics. However the Pièce de résistance are the "Prado" designer style alloys sized 9x20 inches in diameter and finished in silver with a stainless steel lip. Perfect for tackling the the Atacama.

I’ve been a fan of Hofele Designs on some cars that they’ve modified but I don’t think the modification of this Touareh Dakar on the exteriors can please me. For a tuner shop like them, I’m not expecting something like this, just a simple modification but the materials are good.

I thought this car was from Dubai because of the name. Adding to that is the background of the picture. But anyway, the car really looks great outdoors, driving to the hot places.

Dakar is a well know race that pushes the rally cars to their limits, this is a good chance for the VW Touareg to show it’s ability not only on the Urban but also in the wild road.

I can’t imagine Touareg will join Dakar Rally, well i guess this is the special model of Touareg, it really does look aggressive and tough. I think MMS will have a hard time to beat this monster.
