Volkswagen Snowareg beats the white stuff into submission

Volkswagen Snowareg
Here’s a project carried out by Volkswagen Sweden, created to conquer the country’s harsh winters, while having a little fun at the same time.

Based on a neck-wrenching 4.2-litre V8 TDI Touareg, which develops 254 kW (340 hp) and 800 Nm of torque, the factory car can hit 100 km/h in just 5.8 seconds. But that’s when it has wheels.

This particular vehicle features a rubber track conversion system, provided by the Minnesota company Mattracks, allowing mobility over some of the world’s most extreme terrain, albeit at a reduced top speed of 64 km/h.

“We can attest that it works perfectly on all surfaces,” said a Volkswagen spokesman.
