Volkswagen Touareg TDI Wins Carretera Panamericana

Driving a Volkswagen Touareg 3.0-litre V6 TDI Rainer Zietlow and his team have set a new course record in the renowned Carretera Panamericana race with a driving time of just 11 days, 17 hours and 22 minutes. The race runs the entire length of North and South America, and as part of his post-race tour, the off-road enthusiast is showing the record-setting vehicle in Wolfsburg today. Zietlow and his team covered a total of 22,750 kilometres on the route between Tierra del Fuego and Alaska; they passed through 17 countries as well as most of the Earth’s climate and vegetation zones in the record drive, which has been certified by the TÜV Nord testing organisation.

Whether extreme heat, heavy rain, sandstorms or snow – the Volkswagen Touareg proved its efficiency and staying power under challenging course conditions. Zietlow broke the previous world record set in 2006 by four days. In the Touareg, the eco-friendly 3.0-litre V6 TDI Clean Diesel engine consumes 30 percent less fuel and emits up to 25 percent less CO2 than other vehicles with petrol engines in its class.
