VW Launch Cayenne Rival

Touareg R50 has 313bhp V10 TDI

Volkswagen plans to release the new Touareg R50 at the Australian Motor Show and by doing so they will offer one of the most powerful SUVs around.

The retuned V10 TDI will produce more than the 313bhp and staggering 553 lb-ft of torque of the current car. In addition to monster power the R50 also has larger wheels with road focused tyres, stiffer suspension and a new aero kit.

That's all they are telling us about the car at the moment, but expect to hear more after it’s unveiling on the 11th October.

UPDATE: VW will not release power details but confirm that power WILL be increased over standard 5.0. The words 'generous increases' were used. Sorry, we couldn't find out any more info.
