Profile

Volkswagen have taken the potent 6 litre W12 from their Phaeton saloon and placed it in the humble Touareg thereby producing one of the fastest 4x4s on the market. Power is a mighty 450bhp, but the W12 needs it as it has to pull around 2.5 tonnes of hardcore SUV. Air suspension is standard but the ride is still firm, while the Touareg's sporting intent is emphasised by aggressive bodywork and huge 20 inch alloys.

Seen as a genuine rival to the Porsche Cayenne, just 500 W12s will be built, all to special order, for a not unreasonable 66,000.
