Can be ordered with an exclusive Malbec Red exterior.

The Volkswagen Touareg is starting to show its age but that hasn't stopped the company from introducing the new Executive Edition in Europe.

Described as an "extraordinary limited edition model," the Touareg Executive can be equipped with an exclusive Malbec Red exterior which pays tribute to the Malbec grape which is used in red wine.  The crossover also has tinted windows, smoked rear taillights, and 20-inch Mallory wheels with a black finish.

The unique styling continues in the cabin as designers added black Nappa leather seats with diamond quilted inserts and Tobacco brown contrast stitching.  The model also has an ambient lighting system, heated / ventilated front seats, premium wood trim, and illuminated door sill plates with "Executive Edition" badging.

In Germany, the model will be offered with two different 3.0-liter TDI V6 engines.  The entry-level unit produces 204 horsepower and 331 pound-feet of torque, while the other cranks out 262 hp and 427 lb-ft of torque. Both are connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission and a standard 4Motion all-wheel drive system.

Pricing starts at €64,925 for the entry-level model, while the performance-oriented version retails for €68,550.
