Simraceway launches the VW Baja Race Touareg TDI Trophy Truck

Simraceway launches the VW Race Touareg

Developed by the Volkswagen Design Center in Santa Monica, California, and unveiled at the 2008 LA Auto Show, the Baja Race Touareg TDI Trophy Truck was created to contest the 41st Annual Baja 1000 desert race of 2009.

Despite its name, this purpose-built racer bears only a passing resemblance to the manufacturer’s road-going four-wheel-drive SUV, with its double A-Arm front suspension and four-link rear suspension (which allow a massive 25 and 30 inches of wheel travel respectively), Fox Racing Shocks, Eibach Coils, BFGoodrich Baja KRT off-road tires, and 125-inch wheelbase marking it out as an entirely different animal.

Thanks to its 5.5-liter V12 clean-diesel engine, it also proved to be unique amongst the Baja 1000’s competitors, becoming the first turbodiesel Trophy Truck to compete in the race. However despite its green credentials, the powerplant’s 550 bhp still managed to propel the towering Touareg to a respectable 13th position in the 634-mile race.
