      Looks great. But i wonder if it will be priced the same as the Cayenne turbo

    5. 09-24-2004 12:03 PM #5
      i'll take the G55

      whoa I want it......BAD!, I mean I know the V10 TDI probably has almost similar performance, but thats just badass, I love it so much more than the cayenne.

      production = 500 units
      U.A.A. gets 400
      Rest of Europe gets 100

      Close to the performance of the Cayenne Turbo for a few bucks less and much better looking.

    10. 09-24-2004 12:30 PM #10
      Especially if you can get it in black.

    11. 09-24-2004 12:34 PM #11
      Love it.

      Actually, the Cayenne is not holding it's value well at all. So in a couple of years, you'll be able to pick up a Turbo for not much money at all.


    12. 09-24-2004 12:38 PM #12
      Pricetag? Or did I miss something?

    13. 09-24-2004 02:06 PM #13
      Anybody want to buy this?

      I'll save you 35k. Instead of buying it, just cut me a check for 35k...and you'll still be 35k ahead (tag on this has gotta be near 70k)

      IMO, this vehicle symbolizes what's wrong with VW today.

      Same here, especially since it looks much better than the Cayenne too...

      Looks OK.. The numbers are more impressive than the body though. I would take this W12 with that Charactere kit. Now that screams attitude

      Where are the anti-suv people at? Oh ya, its a VW so its exempt from the criticism.

      That said, I like it, alot. I have always loved the toe-rag and I believe it is the only good move VW has made lately. Tornado Red would look pretty good on that thing.

      Obviously an awesome beast-

      If it was my money, man I'm going to sound lame, I'd take the diesel with that exact interior-

      I love it, too bad it won't be the one I buy. I'll have to settle for the V6

      Yup, that's the only way I'd have mine if I ever completely lost my mind.

      If you guys never driven a Tuareg with V10 TDI, I dare you to try it. I've never been in a car/truck that goes so smooth.

      What...so they can make it look more like the MkV's? IMO...the toureg and the Phaeton are the only wise styling moves that VW has made with its new/concept models in the past year and a half.

      Oh my gosh can you imagine how badly it would suck if something was go to wrong with the motor?

      I bet you 95% of the people at VW dealerships have no clue in the world on how to service them let alone get parts for it.

      Another great concept there VW, you are so in touch with exactly what your customers want.......another high priced vehicle that will sit in dealerships for years.

      A whole bunch of Ifs there buddy.

      Let the people who can afford the car buy it. sheesh.

      On a given day, a given circumstance, you think you have a limit. And you then go for this limit and you touch this limit, and you think, 'Okay, this is the limit.' As soon as you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further. With your mind power, your determination, your instinct, and the experience as well, you can fly very high - Ayton Senna
