New steroid-injected Touareg from Volkswagen

Volkswagen has given its Touareg SUV a course of steroid injections and this is the result – the 350bhp R50.

Available in limited numbers, the R50 gains sports styling, extra equipment and an uprated 5.0-litre V10 diesel engine which now produces 350bhp (up 37bhp) and 627lb-ft of torque (up from 553lb-ft).



The R50 costs £61,885 – up £3,885 over the V10 TDI Altitude model.
