Volkswagen Touareg with Tracks Puts on WRC Livery in Sweden

Thought Ken Block had a monopoly on putting tracks on offroad vehicles and taken them where they shouldn't go? Think again, as Volkswagen Sweden has once again unleashed a Touareg SUV onto the unforgiving wilderness, tearing at the snow with its large tracks.

To ensure you don't get bogged down on soft surfaces, it's good to have a wide load area to disperse the weight. That's why these tracks are much bigger than regular tires. But, you also need a lot power to move, which is why the SUV packs a 4.2-liter TDI V8 diesel, good for 340 PS and more importantly 800 Nm of torque.

Apparently, this sort of mod is quite popular in snow-covered areas, like the northern part of Canada. We just wish this was done with a Range Rover Supercharger or a Porsche Cayenne Turbo, something that really moves.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
