(from Wimmer Press Release) WIMMER RENNSPORTTECHNIK reveals its outstanding Touareg concept

For more than two decades, electronic and mechanical performance increase, engine ventilation, exhaust systems, chassis technology, sports clutches, brake systems and any kind of accessory components are the daily bread of WIMMER Rennsporttechnik in Solingen, North-Rhine Westphalia. All the parts come with road traffic admissions - no exceptions made! The team around engineer Thorsten WIMMER is first a KW Performance partner and than secondly as ervice partner of KTM X-Box.

This time the big SUV from Volkswagen, the Touareg kinda fell into WIMMER's clutches. Like the Audi Q7 and the Porsche Cayenne, the Touareg is produced by Volkswagen Slovakia in Bratislava. In 2015 the 3,0 liter TDI with original 204 HP (=150 kW), 450 ft-lb of torque and 2,2 tons weight first saw the light of day. Initially, the WIMMER crew provided a minor performance increase (software optimization).

With that treatment at WIMMER Rennsporttechnik, the current data totals up to 240 HP (= 176 Kw) and 525 ft-lb of top speed. In order to optimize the driving dynamic, a KW coilover suspension system level 3 has been installed and a distinguished exhaust system produced in-house. The black-matte BBS rims type CH-R in 21” with matching tires in 295/35-21, assembled by WIMMER Rennsporttechnik as well, do not have an easy task to keep the powerful pulling force of this heavy beast on the road without a loss of speed.

Last but not least it has to be mentioned that for this white Touareg - with the obvious and typical WIMMER lateral body markings - another upgrade of 310 HP (= 228 kW) and 600 ft-lb of torque is currently being planned at WIMMER Rennsporttechnik.
