Additional Info

Here at QuickandBig we are proud to be able to offer for sale, another mighty VW Touareg R50 V10, twin turbo 5 litre diesel. Now reduced by more than a £1000 to £13,990. Its previous owner paid £20,000 for it, less than 10,000 miles ago!Nothing else says “Quick and Big” quite like VW’s flag ship 4x4. The awesome range topping V10 quickly attaining legendary status. VW then moved it on again, by upgrading it to the R50 (think the R32 Golf and R36 Passat’s, very big brother). The Touareg shares a platform with the Porsche Cayenne, VW choosing an muscular 5.0 litre twin turbo diesel as their flag ship power plant. The V10 Touareg at launch boasted the most powerful diesel engine ever fitted to a production car, in the R50 they upgraded it further still. It is one of the torquiest (I think I have just invented a new word) engines of any road car ever!The engine statistics have become legendary since, 5 litres, twin turbo V10, developing 350bhp and a massive 850nm of torque (25% more than the contemporary 5.0l Supercharged Range Rover) at only 2000rpm. Not only is it an effortless motorway / autobahn stormer, it’s a capable 4x4 off roader (winter is here), and a legendary tow car (officially 3.5 tonne capacity, our example has never towed). Many of us will remember when Channel 5’s 5th Gear TV programme, towed a 155+ tonne Jumbo Jet with the earlier “normal” less powerful V10 car, a World Record for a production car, it’s on You Tube.Our example is we believe the newest Touareg R50 V10, and the only one in Black, available on the market today.X555 JRW (private plate valued at £600, comes with the car), original palate was FP09 0ER, first registered 4/6/09. In 2006 the V10 Touareg benefited from a facelift, with many enhancements (2300 separate part changes) over the earlier 2003-06 cars, the R50 launched in 2008 with many further modernisation and “even” more power. Values of the super rare R50’s (there are only approx. 50 of them in the UK) remain strong and are climbing.X555 JRW has covered below average 106,305  miles (backed up by comprehensive service and MOT history).In our view, the Touareg is in great condition, inside and out. It has gleaming metallic Black Magic Pearl paintwork, complimented by virtually unmarked Anthracite (almost black) full leather interior, it comes with 2 sets of fitted mats.As a top of the range R50 spec car it is loaded with standard and optional extra features, not surprising for a car with a basic price when new of over £63k (plus extras), equipment includes Sat Nav, auto xenon head lights with cornering lighting, auto wipers, dual zone climate control (nice and cold), premium sounds system with 6 disc CD changer and aux input, heated seats front and rear, electric seats and steering column, day time running lights, multi-function steering wheel with controls for the combi-instrument display, electric folding door mirrors, split boot door, key less entry / exit / start, front and rear parking sensors, cruise control, multi height adjustable suspension (normal setting, low and off road settings), high / low range / diff lock, multi-function 6 speed gear box including sport / auto / and manual change, Webasto auxiliary heater, factory rear privacy glass, glove box cooling, tinted rear windows, the list goes on.Since I first heard about these cars, I’ve wanted one (but could never afford one). Now they have depreciated as far as they can go, in fact they are all starting to appreciate in value, the most desirable cars (the R50’s) appreciating quickly. Their type will never be seen again, as such people are starting to appreciate just how rare and special these R50’s are. There are a few early V10 pre face lift (2[hidden information]), with high mileages and poor histories on the market, even fewer face lift cars from 2006 onwards, but R50’s with great histories (like ours really are as rare as hens teeth). According to “how many left”, there are over 400 earlier lower spec, lower powered (but still awesome) V10’s still on the road. There are just 12, R50’s registered in 2009 left on the road. It’s that rare!It comes with a comprehensive service history, the car has an "intelligent" service indicator based on oil quality / driving style etc, there are 6 service stamps in the service book (4 main dealer), including a comprehensive service (including long life oil, air and fuel filters) at a VW Specialist just completed for us, ready for the lucky new owner. Its MOT history is excellent, it has just been freshly MOT’d for us (with no advisories), which does not expire until Feb 2021, ready for its new lucky owner. It’s 21 inch alloys have just been professionally refurbished for the new owners benefit, and come shod with 295/35/21 tyres, the rear’s are brand new, and fronts are Pirelli P Zeros benefiting from 6mm of tread. With its recent service, new MOT, and great tyres, no routine maintenance should be required for some time to come.The V10 Touareg comes with full book packs, compressor / VW tyre sealant, VW 1st aid kit, warning triangle, load cover, load / dog guard, roof bars / spoiler and 2 working remote keys.For the Touareg’s lucky new owner, it will come with an independent 90+ point pre delivery inspection. It is of course HPI clear, a copy of the PDI and full HPI report will be available to potential purchasers.I’ve been lucky enough to drive some quick cars over the years, but this V10 diesel is quick in a completely different way. If you have not experienced a 2.0 tonne, 4x4, 5.0 litre twin turbo, 850nm diesel (the same torque as the new Lamborghini Urus), bending the laws of physics, you should own one, at least once in your life! Light-weight sports cars feel like they are accelerating towards the horizon. This V10 Touareg’s, in gear acceleration defies the laws of physics, it feels like the 4 tyres just grip the tarmac and chuck the world behind it! The R50 just grips and goes! It’s addictive, and quite embarrassing for other drivers who don’t know what the R50 badge on the boot means!Many thanks for wading through our lengthy description, we believe it’s better to describe our cars fully. It is not in our interest to waste your time or ours, with inaccurate / incomplete descriptions. It does of course have the odd age related imperfection (which used car doesn’t), but for its age and mileage it is excellent.Our Touareg R50 V10, really does tick all the QuickandBig boxes, it has hugely depreciated at others expense, is now great value, very quick, big, well presented, perfect for a family, safe, lavishly equipped, go anywhere 4x4, comprehensively maintained, super rare, already appreciating in value, and for those who know their cars, it’s an understated and exclusive way to satisfy your inner petrol head, or this case diesel head!Please visit the photographs again as they form part of the description (there are many more on line at QuickandBig), familiarise yourselves with our terms and conditions (also on line) and contact us via eBay, or by calling Peter on [hidden information], to arrange a viewing / test drive by appointment. Any inspection is welcome. Part exchange particularly if its quick and big a pleasure.
