Default Touareg V10 TDI vs Cayenne Turbo

http://youtube.com/watch?v=U-6Fc5CK1As

Looks like the Touareg will get the Cayenne in the first 1/4 mile. After that, the Cayenne pases the Touareg. Not too bad considering how much a Cayenne Turbo costs...

There were some cool videos of TDI's on there (haven't perused the site that much). I still think it's ridiculous to offroad a Touareg though...as there were quite a few videos of just that.

Yeah, I was watching a video of a British dude putting a Touareg through it's paces (off and on road). I doubt many SUVs out today are really fit for offroad use. But how many people really take them offroad? The Cayenne Turbo S is a sick SUV. For about $110,000, why would I want to buy that if I care about performance? SUV and road performance don't seem to equate. I guess it's just for those that don't care about the cost and want the fastest SUV.

Actually, it looks like the AMG Gelanderwagen owns at all speeds.

Right on......wasn't very clear. I meant between the VW and Porsche.

I say drop a modified Audi R10 twin turbo diesel engine in the Touareg and let's see who gets spanked. But that's not totally fair since the displacement of the R10 is 5.5L versus 4.5L for the Porsche V8.

If you search for TDI, there's a good video of a guy running 12.02 in a Lupo.

Yea! Imagine pulling up next to a Camaro and killing him with that car. (Although the way it smokes you might do just that, if his window's down.)

It would be fun to see the Lupo beat a Camaro. The car looks like it's either chipped or has a power module based on the amount of smoke out of the tailpipe.

"Lupo ran on nitrous + propane, PD100 engine, 2.1L, ~330-350HP"

Geländewagen (or if you don't like umlauts: Gelaendewagen)

It also leads the way to the pump - it has to with an EPA rating of 12/14 mpg Also take a look at how it performed in the slalom
If you go to the next page in the review, it explains why these "performance" SUV's are ridiculous.

Jesus. I didn't know you could squeeze THAT MUCH out of a 2.1L motor. Talk about a sleeper. This would easily spank the average chopped down rice burner with dark tint.
