    Thread: Video: Touareg W12 vs. Cayenne Turbo

    1. 05-11-2005 11:09 PM #1

      This video comparo in in German, but here's a translation by Wolfgang from Benzworld:
      "They are giants, monsters, and steel mountains.
      The Porsche Cayenne Turbo and the VW Touareg W12.
      8 and 12 cylinders, strong like a truck, and potent like a race car.
      The Cayenne belongs at least in Munich into the street picture.
      We find this front has appetite on asphalt and speed. Although some dislike all the plastic around the air inlet. In front we like it, the rear is a bit dull. New is the rearview camera for 1600 Euros.
      Besides the Lamborghini LM002 in the eighties, the Touareg W12 is the only 12 cylinder offroader worldwide. And it has the looks. 20 inchers, broad
      wheel houses. For our taste it could be toned down a bit. On top a roof spoiler and on the bottom a 4 wheel package.
      The clue of the Touareg and Cayenne is the height adjustable suspension up to 30 centimeter of ground clearance. One can drive through the non swimmer section of a swimming pool or up subway staircases. Although nobody does it, but the driver thinks I could if I wanted to.
      10.5 liters, 950 hp, 20 cylinders. Listen and enjoy.
      The command post from Zuffenhausen. Leather as fas as the eye reaches.
      For some there's too much plastic in this cockpit.
      In the Touareg the atmosphere is sportier, thanks to aluminum, less noble, and almost all is standard. The Cayenne Turbo is drive dynamically clearly
      superior. The engine sound belongs to the driving experience as much as the acceleration. It's the Sport SUV.
      The Touareg pleases with even more voluminous standard equipment, with clearly lower base price. Drive dynamics and fuel economy we like less. It is
      the highway runner.
      The 300 Touareg W12 are soon sold out. The VW is therefore more exclusive than the Porsche Cayenne Turbo, which in our comparison is the winner."
