[VIDEO] VW Touareg W12 twin-turbo by Total Race image

The passion for cars has no limit even if the car in question is an SUV and left the Volkswagen production line as a Touareg. But what is truly sad is that Total Race has managed to pull out “only” 444 horsepower from the massive W12 twin-turbo engine, which is actually American tuning.

Everyone knows that American cars are big and slow, powered by large engines which manage to deliver a few ponies, compared to its European or Asian “sisters”, which is exactly the example that we were talking about: large engine with just over 400 horsepower.

The Touareg made by Total race takes its power from a W12 twin-turbo unit, delivering 444 horsepower and 600 Nm of torque. But even if 444 HP taken out of a twin-turbo W12 and placed on a heavy SUV doesn’t seem like much, this Touareg can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.9 seconds, being electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph).

The only question that remains is what will come out if Total Race takes on the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S?
