VW Touareg R-Line Wide-Body  Kit by JE Design

The 2012 VW Touareg R-Line Wide-Body Kit by JE Design boasts a sporty design with a new front spoiler, a new sports grille, rear apron insert, front and rear wheel arch kit, as well as a tailgate panel which considerably adds to the aggressive look. A fibre-reinforced composite and polyurethane were used for the manufacturing of all components, while the dual exhaust system featuring oval stainless steel tailpipes on either side, priced at 595 Euro, completes the customisation cycle, and thus proves the skills and craftsmanship of the engineers from JE Design. The visual transformation of the Touareg was not the only objective of JE Design, as they went further on optimising the engine system, increasing the performance from 340 HP to 410 HP and the peak torque from 800 to 930 Nm. The 0-100 km/h sprint is reached in only 5.4 seconds, instead of 5.8 seconds and the top speed rose from 242 to 269 kph. The vehicle is lowered and brought by 35mm closer to the tarmac, by using the electronic suspension module, in order to make sure that the new power is used to its full extent. The impressive 10x22 inch aluminum wheels add ultra highperformance tyres of the size 295/30, while a wheel spacer kit, priced at 409 Euro, will ensure that the wheels fill the extended arches for obtaining a maximum effect. While rims are available at 690 Euro each, the complete wheel/tyre package is offered to customers at 5190 Euro. The interior is extremely luxurious with Alcantara finishes on the dashboard, door panels as well as the extensive roof liner. Furthermore, each customised component receives a TUV certificate from JE Design.
