Take that Cayenne modifiers!

Ah yes... the "original" VW SUV now finally gets some love from JE Design... the VW Touareg from JE Designcourtesy GermanCarFans.com)

VW tuning specialist JE DESIGN from Leingarten/Germany presents a complete styling suite for the VW Touareg type 7 L.

"The Touareg R 5 has been given a performance boost, which increases the basic power of the 2.5 l TDI engine from 128 kW / 174 bhp to 152 kW / 206 bhp. Following this performance enhancement, the maximum torque goes up to 460 Nm. JE DESIGN also supplies a performance enhancement package for the Touareg V 10 5.0 TDI, which gives the brawny VW 259 kW / 352 bhp, equating to an increase of 29 kW / 39 bhp. Following this enhancement, the maximum torque is increased from 750 Nm to 855 Nm. Placed between R 5 and V 10, the 3.0 V6 TDI completes the available engine offering. 165 kW / 225 bhp and 500 Nm are the standard values of this engine. A power plus of 45 kW and a torque increased by 50 Nm propel the Touareg in 8,9 seconds from zero to 100 km/h (standard: 9,9 sec) and enable a top speed of 210 km/h (plus 9 km/h).



The styling suite includes a complete bumper for the front end, a set of side sills with an air inlet, which makes the car look lower, a roof edge spoiler, a rear apron attachment and a hatch attachment. The bumper and the rear apron attachment are also available for models with Park Distance Control. Moreover, JE DESIGN offers cartridges for double headlights consisting of fog lamps and upper beam headlights for its front bumper. The self-adhesive roof fin “Shark Attack” rounds off the overall image of the JE DESIGN Touareg.



Striking to the eye are also the stainless steel twin tailpipes, each with two 84 mm tailpipes on the left and right, which help to create that chunky look. To lower the suspension in vehicles with air suspension, JE DESIGN offers an electronic suspension lowering module, which allows the vehicle to be lowered by approx. 35 mm. For vehicles with conventional suspension, JE DESIGN also supplies a height-adjustable Variant 3 KW coilover suspension from stainless steel with adjustable rebound and pressure damping, which allows the suspension to be lowered by approx. 30 to 75 mm. Alternatively, a set of springs for the original shock absorbers for lowering the suspension by approx. 30 mm.



By way of tyres, JE DESIGN offers the AZEV wheel rim R in the size 10 x 22" ET 50 for or as a complete set of wheels equipped with 295/30 R 22 tyres.



Further information about the extensive product range from JE DESIGN is available on the Internet at www.je-design.de."





They even tried to give it the new front fascia that Audi/VW has going..

those tires are nice n fat and remind me of the BMW X5 4.8i... they could have used a less dusty shooting location though!

That front bumper is kind of too much. Other than that not too bad.
