Volkswagen Group Australia is bringing back the Wolfsburg badge in the form of 100 V8 Touaregs and 200 with the latest V6 turbo diesel.  

At 4.9 seconds, barely behind the Golf R’s 0-100km/h time, the 100 Wolfsburg V8s will be the last Touaregs built with this 4.0-litre 310kW/900Nm turbo diesel. They join the 200 Touareg R-Line V8s that go on sale late this year.

The Touareg Wolfsburg V6 is equipped with the latest EU6 version of the Volkswagen’s Group’s 3.0 TDI. This is good for 210KW/600Nm and a Golf GTI-challenging 6.5 second 0-100km/h time.

The new “Black Style” package renders the Wolfsburg Edition with a blacked-out front grille which extends into the headlight cluster. Gloss black mirror caps are complimented by the gloss black window surrounds, black roof rails and gloss black 21-inch Suzuka alloy wheels. It has exclusive Midnight Blue metallic paint.

Essentially the 210TDI Wolfsburg Edition mirrors the V8 TDI Wolfsburg Edition, which means that Night Vision and Direct Tyre Pressure Monitors are available on the 210TDI for the first time.

Soft closing doors are exclusive to the Touareg Wolfsburg Edition. If the door is not fully closed, the soft closing door will automatically pull shut.
