    Ouch, I'm sure the truck owner didn't like the outcome. It looks like the truck was rwd or at least didn't have 4wd engaged. Touareg AWD and V10 diesel FTW.

    I was always curious why they put a diesel V10 in the Touareg. Lots of power, but the later V6 TDI has more than enough torque for pulling a trailer and gets 20 mph while doing it.

    That is my favorite:50+ years NASA space program,countless billions spent and Toyota takes all the credit for it because it pulled the shuttle 500 feet over a highway bridge.Just brilliant!
