The Touareg gets puts on a tuxedo.
The second-generation of Volkswagen’s Touareg is lighter, more efficient, and with the new Hofele Design body kit, a lot snazzier. The interior, exterior, and even engine of the Touareg 7P5 all get jazzed up with sharper looks and more power with the new tuning program.
The overall appearance of the VW Touareg is bolder with the aerodynamics and body kit. Up front is an aerodynamically-optimized bumper attachment with integrated fog light housing and air intakes for the new extended wheel arches. The front is also touched up with a new grille that features two horizontal bars and a “Hofele Bear” crest at the center. At the rear is a new rear apron diffuser that mounts to the original bumper. With the diffuser, customers can order four-tube stainless steel tailpipes in an oval or round design. Customers can also choose to keep the original exhaust tips.
In addition to the new body kit, customers can also outfit their Touareg with a variety of wheels and suspension options from Hofele. A number of designer wheels ranging from 20-22 inches in diameter can be fitted to the SUV and add a touch of style. Hofele can also install a lowering module for the electronically-adjustable suspension. The suspension upgrade can lower the car by up to 40 mm at speeds of up to 50 mph (80 km/h). When the 50 mph limit is reached, the suspension reverts to the stock ride height.
Inside, Hofele has trimmed the Touareg in two-tone “Star-Light” leather upholstery. All of the original leather-trimmed interior pieces have been replaced with the “Star-Light” upholstery and feature nested stripes, decorative stitching, quilted elements, and embossed leather crests.
Even the turbodiesel engine was given a boost by Hofele. The 3.0-liter V-6 receives an ECU tune that pushes output to 271 horsepower and 428 lb-ft. of torque, enabling the SUV to sprint to 62 mph in 6.9 seconds and to a top speed of 142 mph (229 km/h).
The Hofele Design VW Touareg 7P5 is currently available as a complete package or as individual accessories. Pricing has not been released.
