Being from an Eastern European descent, amongst other things, I know just how wacky we can get. And that's when we're normal.

Given idle hands, it's only a matter of time before we start concocting ridiculous ideas and then we actually make reality of them. It appears that's exactly what happened to this owner of a Volkswagen Touareg.

To keep it brief, a Touareg owner has a W12 with a twin-turbo setup. Considering the U.S. never received the W12 Touareg, I can't tell if this is the stock W12 Touareg or if this guy was batty enough to drop a W12, from the Bentley Continental or VW Phaeton, into the Touareg. I'll assume it's a stock W12 Touareg.

Draw your own conclusions below and make sure to check out all three videos of this monster...

This trio of videos has been floating around the internet lately, and we love them. Problem is, we can't find any more information about them, and the site the YouTube profile links to is all in Russian.

But that won't stop us from sharing them with you. The videos feature a W12 Touareg that's had a pair of turbochargers strapped to it that, judging from the last video, are sizable enough to make some serious power. It features something called "Smart AWD" which makes adjustments based on wheel speed difference, and can be toggled to be RWD-only. The engine is managed using a ProEFI standalone EMS, with the rev limiter set at 8500 rpm...
