2011 Volkswagen Race Touareg 3 Qatar Concept


This is a genuine Rally motorsport vehicle, like the one that was still
touring South America in the Dakar Rally two weeks ago and was built
to withstand the toughest rally race in the world. The vehicle now being
shown in Qatar is a version of the Race Touareg 3 – an SUV that can
sprint to 100 km/h in less than six seconds – that is legally approved
for use on public roadways. The just over two metre wide body was
slightly modified for road use. Instead of 16-inch wheels, new 18-inch
wheels from BBS with a gold look are being used. The “Race Touareg”
signature – also in a golden colour - stretches the entire length of the
vehicle’s sides. In turn, it is perfectly coordinated with the exterior
paint in “Magic Morning”, a white that has a slight gold shimmer to it.


The interior was completely redesigned; all that remained unmodified
was the safety cage. Without compromises also means an interior that
offers easy controls and is ergonomic. The interior has an extremely
well-organised appearance with focus on the driving machine, and
it is equipped with Recaro racing bucket seats. Designers created an
interior in so-called “Stealth look” that is reminiscent of the aircraft of
the same name. In tribute to the Dakar Rally, the Dakar victories are
etched in the anodised aluminium of the centre console, right next to
the “Race Touareg” signature.


Other trim elements are treated in Matt Carbon. Tuned to this is the roll
cage in “Serpentino Grey Metallic.” Interior designers have upholstered
the seat side supports and the door trim panels with Nubuk leather in
“Black” and “Pure Grey,” while the centre seat panels are made from
perforated Nappa leather in “Titan Black.” Additional accents include
the two-tone seams and silver piping on the seat covers and safetyrelated
items painted in Tornado Red. The only other ingredient that
is needed is some time to explore the world on a “360 degree route” in
this uncompromising car.
