    Actually, 2 of 'em. One V6 and one V8. The V6 stickered at 36k and the V8 at 42. Not too bad if you ask me. The overall packaging is amazing though. It looks much larger and more imposing in person than in pictures, and the interior looks just as amazing, if not better. Very :cool:. I'd definitely rock one :)

    Wonder how much the V10 TDI will go for. That's the only engine I'd get in that beast.

    Something like 550 ft-lbs of torque :eek3:

    313 hp as well :eek3: I would think it'd start somewhere around the V8's price.

    I saw one at the dealer last weekend while getting my coil packs replaced. Looked badass, but $46K for a VW. Fuck that shit.

    :dunno: That's the attitude I have when somebody goes and pays 50+ for a Navigator. It's just a Ford. :rolleyes:

    I can't wait to get my hands on a Touareg...I wanna test drive one, or at least check it out. I'll go to my dealership and talk to my amigos up there.

    VW owns Audi, Bentley, Lambo, and Bugatti. If there's anything they've learnt, I sure hope it's how to make a decent luxury car.

    I personally haven't seen it yet. My family's in the market for one, so perhaps I'll veer them in the VW direction.
