Wimmer Gives Touareg Nearly 200 More Torques

One of the best parts of Volkswagendom is that nothing is off limits. For every car there is someone willing to modify it. The Touareg is no stranger to this modifying zeal, but the latest version hasn’t been a darling of the modifying world. Not until now, that is.

Germany’s Wimmer RS has now taken a crack at the SUV and the result is an understated (decals notwithstanding) Touareg with 40 more hp and nearly 200 more lb-ft of torque.

Wimmer took the stock 3.0L TDI that produces 201 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque. They then improved software optimization, swapped in new coilovers, bolted on a new set of rims, and gave it an in-house exhaust system. When they were done, the Touareg produced 237 hp and 525 lb-ft of torque.

Wimmer say that more mods are coming and they expect to get power even higher up to 305 hp and 600 lb-ft of torque.
