…The Touareg can tow a 747?


A stock Volkswagen Touareg V10 TDI “lightly modified” with an additional 15,498 lbs. of ballast weight, a 4.56 axle from a V8 Touareg, and a special tow adapter (the engine, transmission, suspension, tires and brakes were all left stock), successfully towed a Boeing 747 (155 tons) in low ratio, second gear. Up next: Volkswagen successfully tows the Earth into reverse orbit.
