Volkswagen Race Touareg 3 suprise is Out

VW has sent out a teaser image of the Volkswagen Race Touareg 3, being prepared for January's 2011 Dakar Rally.

It's mini baby of Batman's Vehicle Look alike.With its identical look and placement of the blue valves, black hoses, steel tubing, and radiator elements. The exterior color of the vehicle in the teaser is also the same as that of the prototype.

With this, Volkswagen will be looking to win their third Dakar in a row, following Carlos Sainz & Lucas Cruz' 2010 victory, and Giniel de Villiers & Dirk von Zitzewitz' 2009 win. The company plans to radically improve the aerodyamics of the current race-ready Touareg, while keeping the inspiration of the current mass production vehicle.

The 300-horsepower (224-kW) TDI engine already in use will remain unchanged. Also not receiving an update are the suspension and the chassis.

Testing of the new Volkswagen Race Touareg 3 will continue later this month in the Moroccan desert. Once the hot weather testing is complete, the car will be formally unveiled in August before taking on the St. Petersburg to Sochi Silk Way Rally in Russia one month later.
