Speaking to a few Member recently who had not heard of the R50. Thought I'd do a little thread




2007 -2010

The Touareg R50 is the third Volkswagen after the Golf and Passat to be given the 'R' treatment by Volkswagen Individual GmbH. The R50 global launch was at the 2007 Australian International Motor Show.
The "R50" naming comes from the engine displacement: 5.0 L. The R50 was offered with a 5.0-litre V10 diesel engine, 257 kilowatts (349 PS; 345 bhp) with 850 newton metres (627 lbf·ft) of torque, and pushing the car to 100 kilometres per hour (62.1 mph) in 6.7 seconds.[sup][11][/sup]
The R50 came standard with 21-inch Omanyt wheels, sport-tuned air suspension, decorative 'engine spin' finish interior trim inlays, and a four-zone Climatronic climate control system.

£61k in basic spec @ launch
£25 to £35k ish now. (held there value really well !)

Kinda cool would love to do a VW Scene one of these. They remap quite well too

Looks absolutely lovely, since you put it on the chat page on the home screen Anakin i've been reading the link and reading a few bits about it.

Thanks for the thread, an utter animal.

I saw a blue one a few weeks ago I had to pull over I was that excited, It looked immense and definitely had an "I mean business look!"
My R36 is Biscay Blue, not sure if it's the same as an R50 but I've alwaays wondered how it differs to DBP?

They are such a nice alternative to the common X5, Q7 etc. I will keep a look out for them now!!
